One of the most popular coins in American history is the Morgan Silver Dollar. Although it was met with modest reception when the design was first introduced in 1878 by the US Mint, the longevity and eventual disappearance of these coins over time made them particularly popular among rare coin collectors. The Morgan Silver Dollar is available today from Silver.com with a VG Plus grade.

The Morgan Silver Dollar Coins listed in this Silver.com product special are from the original 1878-1904 production range. Morgan Silver Dollars were temporarily struck again in 1921, before being replaced later in that same year by the new Peace Silver Dollar design. Each coin in this listing has a Very Good Plus grade.
Very Good is a term used to define coins that have, at worst a design worn with slight detail still visible. In the best case scenario, they have a design that is worn with slight details still visible and slightly clearer than lower counterparts. VG coins range on the Sheldon Scale from 8 to 10, and the “plus” identifies specimens that feature exceptional eye appeal in their grade, often constituting the top specimens from that range.
On the obverse of all Morgan Silver Dollar Coins is the image of Lady Liberty in left-profile relief. George T. Morgan was a British citizen completing a 6-month trial period at the US Mint under Chief Engraver William Barber when he created Liberty using Anna Willess Williams as his muse.
The reverse of Morgan Silver Dollars includes the image of a bald eagle. Morgan and Barber each created different reverse patterns for the new standard dollar to be released in 1878, and the eventual design from Morgan featured a collaboration of designs from the two. Morgan’s eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch was combined with Barber’s eagle set with its wings spread wide.
