Why add the 1896 Morgan Silver Dollar BU to your collection?

This 1896 Morgan Silver Dollar is available in astounding Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The U.S. Mint began striking Morgan silver dollars in 1878 through 1904 and one last time in 1921. This iconic coin contains .7734 oz. of silver struck on a 90% pure planchet. It has a mintage of 9,976,000 many of which undoubtedly were melted after World War I. This issue was struck at the Nation’s primary coinage facility, the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia.

Liberty’s Perfect Face

George Morgan, a junior U.S. Mint engraver and English immigrant designed this icon of American Coinage. Anna Willis Williams served as the model for Liberty’s portrait on the obverse. Later in life, Mr. Morgan mused that her face was perfect for the job. The reverse features a Heraldic Eagle firmly holding arrows and an olive branch in his talons. The design is completed by a laurel wreath and the motto “In God We Trust.”
