Morgan Silver Dollar coins are so-named because of the man who created both designs. George T. Morgan is a British-born coin designer and engraver. During the late 19th century he found it impossible to get an apprenticeship at the Royal Mint of England. With the backing of the Royal Mint’s chief engraver, he traveled to America to work for the United States Mint. He would quickly make his mark with the design of the silver dollar when the coins returned in 1878.
All of these 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollars are available to you with a Mint State 63 certification from the Professional Coin Grading Service. Coins in MS63 condition have slightly impaired mint luster with numerous small contact marks and a smaller number of scattered heavy marks.
On the obverse of the 1890 Morgan Silver Dollar coin is the image of Lady Liberty. This left-profile portrait revives classical imagery of Lady Liberty and Morgan sat with Anna Willess Williams as the model for his vision of Liberty. His design depicts Liberty with soft facial features, long hair in a half-bun, and a wreath and crown on her head. The crown bears the inscription of “Liberty.”
The reverse of 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollars features the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design includes the American bald eagle set behind the US national shield with the arrows of war and olive branch of peace in its talons.
All of these 1890 Morgan Silver Dollars feature the “CC” mint mark from the Carson City Mint. A former US Mint branch facility, the Carson City Mint was purpose-built to refine silver from the Comstock Lode and other silver mines in Nevada and other American Southwest locations. The Carson City Mint ceased operations in 1893.
