George T. Morgan was the man responsible for the design of the silver dollar that eventually became known as the Morgan Silver Dollar. Silver dollar production in the United States had ceased in 1873, along with the free minting of silver by the United States Mint. After five years without a silver dollar in production, the US Mint introduced Morgans design.
Morgan was a British citizen and a gifted young engraver, but Londons Royal Mint had no open positions for him. Upon the recommendation of the Royal Mints director, the US Mint offered Morgan a 6-month trial period as an engraver. After four sessions with Anna Willess Williams, Morgan had a depiction of Lady Liberty that became one of the most popular in the countrys history.
On the obverse side of the 10 oz GAM Morgan Silver Bar youll find the image of Lady Liberty from the obverse side of Morgan Silver Dollar coins. Struck in a strong, frosted finish, the coins image features Lady Liberty, complete with the phrase E Pluribus Unum above her head, and 13 stars around her. Additional engravings include the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, as well as the stamp Made in U.S.A.
The reverse side of each of these bars bears no text or image engravings. Instead, there is a simple repeating image of squares aligned in a diagonal motif.
