About the Morgan Dollar:
The Morgan dollar is among the most historic U.S. coins ever minted. Named after the designer, U.S. Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan, it was produced from 1878 to 1904 and in 1921.  The obverse depicts Liberty as a youthful woman wearing a Phrygian cap, worn by emancipated slaves of ancient Rome, together with a headdress of cotton and wheat— staples of the U.S. economy.  The reverse features a Bald Eagle with outstretched wings, symbolic of the power of the U.S. government.  The eagle bears in its great talons both an olive branch and 3 arrows, representing a nation of peace but one that is poised for war.  The dollar was authorized by the Bland-Allison Act of 1878, which required the Treasury to purchase an enormous 2 to 4 million dollars’ worth of silver each month to be coined into dollars.  Later, in 1918, passage of the Pittman Act ultimately led to the melting of over 270 million Morgan dollars held in treasury reserves.  Today, the choice few that remain are cherished specimens of a bygone era that serve to immortalize the memory of a young, prosperous, and powerful United States of America.

About the American Silver Eagle:

In the brief period since its introduction in 1986, the Silver Eagle has become the most widely traded silver bullion coin in the world. It stands at the summit of a 200-year history of American silver coinage.  As stipulated by law, American Silver Eagles are composed of silver mined exclusively in the United States with a purity of 99.9%, making them the purest U.S. silver bullion coins ever minted.  All Silver Eagles are struck in the one troy ounce denomination with a nominal face value of $1. The Silver Eagle is considered by many to be the most beautiful coin in production today. The obverse takes its design directly from one of the most iconic coins in U.S. history-- Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty half-dollar of 1916-1947. The reverse of the coin originally featured a heraldic eagle, which was later replaced in 2021 with a depiction of an eagle approaching a landing and carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to a nest.  By combining the classic with the modern, the American Silver Eagle coins capture the unique spirit of our country--proud of our history while moving forward with purpose.
