The Morgan Silver Dollar Design
The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most recognized and collected coins to ever be produced by the United States Mint. The original design was engraved by Assistant Engraver to the United States Mint, Mr. George T. Morgan in late 1877, and for whom the coin would eventually derive its name. Mr. Morgan designed the obverse of the coin using a lovely profile portrait of Lady Liberty as she faces left. Upon the crown of her head is a Greek stylized cap inscribed with the word ‘LIBERTY’ into the headband, and accent leaves protruding from directly behind the band. The skilled craftsmen at the Highland Mint have captured the absolute essence of the legendary classic Morgan Dollar coin and have transformed its likeness into a large 5 Troy oz. silver art bar made from .999 pure fine silver. The top half of the bar will carry the enlarged image of the Morgan Dollar design with a large ‘5’, ‘FIVE TROY OUNCES’, ‘FINE SILVER’, and ‘999+’ embossed into the bottom half of the front side. Located at the very bottom of the front of the bar is the proud notation of its American production with the stamp ‘MADE IN USA’.
