Product Description

The Morgan Dollar is one of the most collected silver coins in our history. This George T. Morgan design is awash with Western lore and legend. First struck in 1878, it was created to absorb the fabulous quantity of silver mined from the Comstock Lode. The head of Lady Liberty takes up most of theobverse (front) of this silver coin. She is encircled by the date of issue, 13 stars, and the words, 'E ' PLURIBUS ' UNUM'. This phrase, which translates to 'Out of many, one', was first chosen for official United States use in 1776.

The reverse (back) features a bald eagle with wings spread perched upon a branch and arrows. The eagle is partially surrounded by a wreath. Above his head sits the motto 'In God we trust'. Around the rim are the words 'UNITED STATES OF AMERICA' separated by a star on either side from 'ONE DOLLAR'. Morgan, who studied under the direction of instructors from the Royal Mint in London, placed an 'M' on both sides of the coin to lay his claim to the design. He made slight revisions to the coin's design when it was reintroduced in 1921. Pre-1921 Morgan Dollars Fine/Very Fine (F/VF) from Park Avenue Rarities is the perfect gift for any coin collector.
