The Morgan Dollar holds a special place in U.S. coinage as it was the first coin to feature Lady Liberty with an American look, rather than the traditional Greek style. Her cap is adorned with wheat and cotton as a tribute to America's agricultural history.
The Morgan Dollar flooded the markets from 1878-1904. Nearly two decades after production halted, the Morgan Dollar was seen again for one year only, in 1921, due to a renewed desire for this iconic, beautiful design.
On the obverse of the coin is the Left facing profile of Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap adorned with wheat and cotton balls in her hair. The design was created by George T. Morgan.
On the reverse a Bald eagle is depicted with outstretched wings clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons.
The coin(s) you will receive will be from 1921 and will be at random from one of the following mints: D - Denver Mint; S - San Francisco Mint; No Mint Mark - Philadelphia Mint
The condition of these coins range from VG (Very Good) - XF (Extra Fine)
