Many collectors are familiar with the Morgan Silver Dollar. It was produced by the US Mint from 1878 to 1904, then again for one year in 1921. This was the first dollar coin that was minted after the government passed the Coinage Act of 1873. As a result of this act, however, the value of silver fell tremendously, and the Morgan Silver Dollar was the first dollar coin to be minted once the value rose again. This 1 oz Morgan Copper Round is a tribute to the same Morgan Silver Dollar.

Though the original Morgan Silver Dollar was made of 90% pure silver, the commemorative copper coin is made from 1 avoirdupois oz of 99.9% copper. Though this round copies the design of the original coin, it is not legal currency and does not have any face value.
When you look upon the Morgan Copper Round, you will see the iconic rendition of Lady Liberty. In this case, you can see the profile of her face surrounded by the loose curls of her hair. She is wearing several headpieces, one of which is a wreath of leaves known as a pileus. She also has a headband with the phrase, “Liberty.” Around the edge of the face of the round is a border made of thirteen stars that represent each of the original colonies. There is also the phrase “E Pluribus Unum” at the top of the face. The only difference between the Morgan Copper Round and the Morgan Dollar on this side is that the round has no mintage date.
The reverse differs from the Morgan Dollar in all ways. The reverse features a stylized eagle with a winged shield over the center. Below the shield is the phrase “USA” and above, the country’s flag waves. The motif of patriotism continues by featuring three stars on either side of the shield. At the top and bottom edges are the purity and the weight of the round.
