Morgan Dollars

The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most popular and most beautiful of all classic United States coins.  First minted in 1878, it was a coin that was connected with the “Wild West.”  It was struck with silver from the Comstock Lode in Nevada (the most famous and most successful silver strike in American history), and it was respected everywhere because of its large size and large amount of silver.  It also became known as a “cartwheel” because of its large size.

The coin was named for its designer, U.S. Mint engraver George T. Morgan. The obverse portrays Lady Liberty wearing a slave’s cap (an ancient symbol of freedom), a ribbon inscribed with the word “Liberty,” and cotton and wheat as a tribute to America’s agricultural heritage.  The reverse features an American eagle holding both the olive branch of peace and arrows of war.
 
Morgan was originally from England.  He studied with the most renowned English engravers of the era before coming to Philadelphia to work for the U.S. Mint.  He claimed that the model for Lady Liberty was a statue in a Philadelphia museum, but it was soon revealed that the model was, in fact, a Philadelphia teacher.  When the truth became known, the teacher lost her job – because being an artist’s model was considered “immoral”!
