In 1873, America’s silver dollar coin production ceased and the free coining of silver came to an end. For the next five years, the nation went without new silver dollars in circulation. When the United States Mint was permitted to restart production, a young British man named George T. Morgan had the chance to design the image.
Morgan came to the US after consultations between the head of the US Mint and London’s Royal Mint. Morgan was a gifted, if young, engraver, but the Royal Mint had no openings for him. He was given a six-month trial at the US Mint, and excelled. He created the iconic Lady Liberty design on Morgan Silver Dollars during multiple sittings with model Anna Willess Williams.
The original Morgan Silver Dollars were struck between 1878 and 1904, with an additional one-year run in 1921. On the obverse face of these 1 oz Sunshine Mint Morgan Silver Rounds is that iconic image of Lady Liberty, with her hair pinned behind her head and a crown with the word “Liberty” inscribed within resting atop her head.
On the reverse face of the round is the image of a bald eagle, its wings spread wide and its talons clutching arrows and an olive branch. Each of these rounds was produced by the Sunshine Mint. A privately-owned company, the Sunshine Mint has manufacturing facilities in Couer d’Alene, Idaho, Nevada, and Shanghai.
