The 1oz Morgan Design Silver Bars are one of the many
privately minted silver bars offered by Gainesville Coins. They are an attractive addition to any silver portfolio. The bars consist of 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
Silver bars offer investors the opportunity to purchase
pure silver at a low premium. Silver bars do not carry a face value,
but most will have the purity and weight inscribed on them.
The 1 oz Morgan Design Silver Bars are based on the Morgan Silver Dollar coin, designed by George Morgan. The design for the coin began in 1876. Morgan, who was known at the time for engraving designs in metal was on a list of recommended artists. Morgan was chosen, and he went to the Academy of Fine Arts to work on the Liberty head design and the bald eagle, which was on the reverse of the standard silver dollar. The designs were launched in 1878.
