Description:

This is a 1896 New Orleans minted Morgan Silver dollar that has a circulation strike of 4,900,000. The Morgan Silver Dollar, now one of the most popular coins for U.S. collectors, was first minted in 1878 when silver mine owners lobbied the government to re-issue silver dollars - the mintage of which had been halted in 1873. To comply with the Bland-Allison Act, the U.S. Mint engaged a young designer, George T. Morgan, to design and engrave a new silver dollar. George Morgan, in turn, asked Anna W. Williams, a school teacher, to sit as a model for the Liberty Head on the obverse side of the Morgan Dollar.
