  • Description:

    Ever wonder why Lady Liberty is so present on most US currency and bullion? Sometimes, she is depicted as a strong Grecian goddess and other times she is a delicate seated figure. 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. Your 1897-S Morgan is considered to be very fine condition, with noticeable wear on Lady Liberty's portrait, the cotton leaves, and the eagle. The Morgan also 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.
