The Morgan Dollar holds a special place in U.S. coinage as it was the first coin to feature Lady Liberty with an American look, rather than the traditional Greek style. Her cap is adorned with wheat and cotton as a tribute to America's agricultural history.

The image of the eagle was also updated for the Morgan Dollar, showing a proportionally correct eagle with beautifully designed feathers. He carries an olive branch, showing America's desire for peace, and is perched atop a bundle of arrows, signifying America's readiness to defend her borders against attack.

The Morgan Dollar flooded the markets from 1878-1904. Nearly two decades after production halted, the Morgan Dollar was seen again for one year only, in 1921, due to a renewed desire for this iconic, beautiful design.

Collect Morgan Silver Dollars that celebrate the art of George T. Morgan.

Though Morgan Silver Dollars were among the first coins George T. Morgan designed as assistant engraver at the Philadelphia U.S. Mint, he had already established himself as an artist and engraver in England where he received instruction at the Birmingham Art School and South Kensington Art School and worked for The British Royal Mint. When U.S. Mint director H.R. Linderman first met Morgan, he told him he wanted Lady Liberty’s portrait to make a return to American coinage. This meeting led to Morgan’s Silver Dollar design. Before designing these Silver coins for sale, Morgan enrolled in the Academy of Art in Philadelphia to immerse himself in American art and to inspire his reinterpretation of the traditional Greek-looking Lady Liberty into a wholly American-looking version.

Morgan Silver Dollars found today escaped melting two different times in history.

Morgan Silver Dollars were minted in abundance from 1878 until 1904, and again in 1921, resulting in approximately 657 million Silver Dollars. Though so many Morgan Dollars were minted, two major pieces of legislation affected how many are left in existence: The Pittman Act of 1918 and the Silver Act of 1942. The Pittman Act authorized the melting of up to 350 million Silver Dollars to loan to Great Britain, and in 1942 more than 53 million Silver Dollars were melted for wartime use. Buying Silver coins from the Morgan Dollar series can be challenging at times, especially when you are searching for specific years or Silver coins from specific mints.

The Morgan Silver Dollar was the first U.S. coin to depict Lady Liberty with an American look, rather than the traditional Greek style.
