The Morgan Silver Dollar coinage debuted in 1878 from the United States Mint. After passage of the Fourth Coinage Act in 1873, the US Mint ended the coining of private silver at its mints and demonetized silver bullion. This led to the end of the Seated Liberty Dollar, but in 1878 the US Mint rebooted the dollar with a new design from George T. Morgan.
All Morgan Silver Dollar Coins in this listing earned a Mint State 62 certification from either the PCGS or the NGC. A coin with the MS62 grade has impaired or dull luster. Despite the presence of a few scattered hairlines and scattered contact marks in primary and secondary focal areas, the coins are generally considered to have an acceptable eye appeal.

On the reverse of Morgan Silver Dollar Coins is a depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States. The design includes an American bald eagle clutching the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other. As is the case in times of peace, the eagle’s head is turned toward the talon holding the olive branch of peace.
The obverse of Morgan Silver Dollars features the left-profile bust of Lady Liberty. Mr. Morgan, who joined the US Mint in the 1870s as an apprentice from England, sat with Anna Willess Williams to develop his portrait of Lady Liberty for the coins.
