The Morgan Silver Dollar was introduced by the United States Mint in 1878 after undergoing two years of design by George T. Morgan. The coin was the first US silver dollar issued by the mint in five years following passage of an Act of Congress that halted the free coining of silver and ended the use of the Seated Liberty design on silver dollars.
Morgan Silver Dollars were in circulation from 1878 to 1904 in the United States, when another bill was passed that halted the production of silver dollars. The silver dollar would not return to circulation in the US until 1921, well after World War I’s conclusion. The Morgan design was resurrected, but used only for a portion of 1921 and replaced by the Peace Silver Dollar.
On the obverse of all Morgan Silver Dollar coins is the left-profile portrait image of Lady Liberty. Morgan sat through numerous portrait sessions with Anna Willess Williams to get his depiction of Liberty just right for the obverse, and added 13 stars around her head and the year of issue at the base of her bust.
The reverse of all Morgan Silver Dollars features the image of the heraldic eagle of America. The bald eagle is depicted clutching arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. Featured engravings include “United States of America” and the face value of the coin.
