The Morgan Silver Dollar was issued by the United States Mint over the course of 28 years, 27 of which were consecutive from 1878 to 1904. During this initial period of time, four branch mints struck the coins, with only two doing so ever year. The Philadelphia Mint was one of those two.

The Philadelphia Mint, also known as the United States Mint at Philadelphia, is the oldest operating mint facility in the United States. The Philadelphia Mint was established by the Coinage Act of 1792, signed into law by President George Washington. It began operations in 1793 and played a crucial role in the early development of the nation’s currency and coinage system.
George T. Morgan is best known for designing the Morgan Silver Dollar, one of the most iconic and widely collected coins in American history. The Morgan Dollar was first minted in 1878 and remained in production until 1904. It was briefly reintroduced in 1921.
The obverse of the 1887 Morgan Silver Dollar features a left-profile relief of Lady Liberty. This bust shows Liberty’s head with the coronet and laurel wreath crowns, as well as a ring of 13 stars around the edge of the design field.
On the reverse of the 1887 Morgan Dollar, you will find an image of the heraldic eagle. Also designed by Morgan, this visual shows the bald eagle in front-facing relief with the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace, but lacks the typical inclusion of the US national shield.
These 1887 Morgan Silver Dollar Coins are in Mint State 63 condition. Coins with this grade showcase impaired mint luster and have a range of possible flaws that include numerous small contact marks, visible hairlines, and detracting scuffs.
