Morgan Dollars

Coins | user_22476

This is the history of the Morgan dollar. The Morgan dollar was made in 1878 at the Philadelphia mint. They were designed by George T. Morgan, hence the name. I believe that these coins are definitely the first coins sought out by beginners and experienced alike. I have 1921, 1893, and 1889 Mogan dollars. This coin is also very different from others, for example, it has the quote In God We Trust on the reverse and not the obverse. The eagle on the reverse is very strange and that is why the coin is nicknamed the buzzard coin. The lady on the coin also is not the usual lady liberty. In fact, somebody used to be the face of the dollar. Later, this same person was thrown in jail for being portrayed. There is so much more about the Morgan dollar which I will do later. Thank you!
