If you are a collector of silver coins, this is a coin that belongs in your collection!
The Morgan Dollar gets its name from its designer, George T. Morgan. This beautiful silver coin features the profile portrait of Lady Liberty on its obverse with amazing detail. The obverse also features the phrase “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and the coin’s mint year. Also featured are 13 stars along the coin’s outer rim.
The coin’s reverse features the mighty eagle holding an olive branch and arrows in its talons. The reverse also features the inscriptions “IN GOD WE TRUST, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “ONE DOLLAR”.
Given the long history of these coins and their highly respected and symbolic design, they make an excellent addition to any coin collection or precious metals portfolio. They also make a wonderful gift.
The Morgan Silver Dollar was authorized by the Bland-Allison Act in 1873 and it remains a highly popular piece of American silver coinage today.
