Morgan Dollars part 2

Coins | user_22476

Hi guys, we are just going to go over the history of the morgan dollars. So let's dive right in. George Thomas Morgan was the person who designed the dollar. He was the Chief Engraver from 1917-1925. And also designed the reverse of the Colombian half-dollar. For the face of the Morgan dollar, he model Anna Willess Williams who was a school teacher. Morgan even put his initials on both the obverse and reverse of the coin. There were over 657 million Morgan dollars minted between 1878-1921. Sadly, a lot of them were melted thanks to the Pittman act in 1918 and the Silver Act in 1942. The rarest of these coins was the 1893 S. This coin only had about 100,000 minted and go anywhere from $1900 to $1,250,000! Another cool feature of the Morgan dollar was that in 1878 there were either 7 or 8 feathers from the " buzzard bird". There are also new Morgan 2021 coins that I have a few of. But that's all I have for you today can't wait to see you soon! Bibliography: https://www.usgoldbureau.com/news/history-of-morgan-silver-dollars 2022 red book

Morgan Dollars

Coins | user_22476

This is the history of the Morgan dollar. The Morgan dollar was made in 1878 at the Philadelphia mint. They were designed by George T. Morgan, hence the name. I believe that these coins are definitely the first coins sought out by beginners and experienced alike. I have 1921, 1893, and 1889 Mogan dollars. This coin is also very different from others, for example, it has the quote In God We Trust on the reverse and not the obverse. The eagle on the reverse is very strange and that is why the coin is nicknamed the buzzard coin. The lady on the coin also is not the usual lady liberty. In fact, somebody used to be the face of the dollar. Later, this same person was thrown in jail for being portrayed. There is so much more about the Morgan dollar which I will do later. Thank you!
