  • Description:

    The marvelous Morgan silver dollar design was named after its designer: George T. Morgan. Morgan, born and raised in England, learned and mastered all of the ways of an engraver. He moved to the US, as a young adult, where he was hired as the assistant engraver to chief engraver, William Barber, at the US Mint. Morgan worked at the mint for almost 40 years before earning the position of chief engraver when Barber died. The Morgan dollar was in production from 1878-1904, then one last production in 1921. Reaching into their silver reserves, the government reauthorized the minting of these Morgans to completion. Since the Morgan contains 90% silver, it took the government many bills and repeals to afford to produce tons of silver dollars. Your 1897 silver Morgan was minted in Philadelphia and is in brilliant uncirculated condition. It weighs approximately 26.73 grams and has a diameter of 38.1 millimeters.
