The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most significant, historic American coins. Introduced in 1878, the Morgan Silver Dollar represented a return to silver dollar coining in the US after a brief hiatus. The design for the coin was created by a British man named George T. Morgan who had come to the US from the Royal Mint in Britain on a trial basis. Right now, Morgan Silver Dollar Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

The Morgan Silver Dollar debuted in 1878 with a design from George T. Morgan. At the time of its introduction, the Morgan Silver Dollar represented a return to silver dollar coining in the United States after it was halted in 1873. The Bland-Allison Act of 1873 brought an end to the free coining of silver in the US at the United States Mint, and a subsequent stop to silver dollars altogether.
On the obverse of the Morgan Silver Dollar is the left-profile portrait of Liberty. This design of Liberty that was created by Morgan is said to reflect the figure of Anna Willess Williams, who sat through numerous sessions with Morgan to complete the portrait of Liberty. Included on this face is the year of issue and the word “Liberty.”
The reverse of all Morgan Silver Dollar coins includes a design of the bald eagle also created by Morgan. The eagle is similar to the heraldic eagle, but lacks the shield commonly used in that design. Included in this design of the eagle is a bird with wings spread wide as it clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
