Gainesville Coins is pleased to offer Common Date Morgan Silver Dollars in Extra Fine Condition. Morgan Silver Dollars were minted from 1878 to 1904 and again in 1921, when they were replaced by the Peace Dollar. The coin gets its name from the engraver George T. Morgan, whose design was inspired by a young schoolteacher named Anna Williams.
The reverse, features the American bald eagle, the monetary denomination of one dollar, the year the coin was released, and the words, “United States of America,” and “In God We Trust.” The obverse depicts the profile of Lady Liberty, from the likeness of Anna Williams. Ms. Williams was a scandalous topic in her day for posing for a young man, sculptor or not, which eventually lead to her losing her teaching position. Ms. Williams was quickly rehired as a school teacher by another school, and taught the rest of her life.
