Many collectors and investors are interested in adding some historical value into their collections and one way to do this is with the Morgan Silver Dollar. This Morgan Silver Dollar is in cull condition, a designation indicating the coin is aged and may have marks of age and wear. This, however, does not indicate that they do not have value to collectors who will enjoy the historic significance of these coins. On top of that, each of these coins is listed with a $1 face value and is made of 90% silver.
Most people will seek out coins in cull condition, such as the Morgan Silver Dollar because they have a great back story when it comes to their design. The silver these coins are made of also comes from the Comstock Lode of the 1850s. As the story goes, a school teacher named Anna Williams posed for the engraver, George T. Morgan, to serve as the inspiration for the coin. During the time period, in the 1870s, it was quite scandalous for young women to pose for any artist and there were a lot of whispers concerning Ms. Williams. However, Ms. Williams had the last laugh as she is the one whose profile is seen to this day.
Upon looking at the Morgan Silver Dollar, you will see a profile of Lady Liberty, based on the profile of Anna Williams. The face of the profile faces left, but depending on the year of the coin, there are variations when it comes to the hair and accessories of Lady Liberty. There are 13 stars that surround the profile on each coin and the phrase “LIBERTY” or “E. PLURIBUS UNUM” depending on the year. The year of the coin is on the bottom.
The reverse side of each Morgan Silver Dollar features the majestic eagle. Depending on the year the coin was released, the eagle will be in a different position. One of the similarities in all of these coins, however, is that the eagle holds an olive branch and arrows in its talons. The phrases “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” are also seen on each coin.
