  • Description:

    The Certified Morgan Silver Dollar 1897-S MS63 NGC has received a BU grade, according to the Sheldon Grading Scale, and comes encased in an official NGC holder. Lady Liberty has been on the face of US currency ever since the first mint facility was established. Her presence on the coinage as been a long-time tradition but it isn't for the reason you would think. This temptation of placing Lady Liberty on all currency is actually the law. The Coinage act of 1792 requires the US Mint to include "an impression emblematic of liberty" on all currency. This Morgan carries the "S" mint-mark, to verify it was struck at the famous and successful San Francisco Mint. The San Francisco Mint was founded in 1854, as a result of the famous gold rushes on the west coast. In just its first year, it turned out $4 million of gold coins from all the gold being mined.
