Morgan Silver Dollar coins were introduced in 1878 by the United States Mint as the Treasury Department revived the striking of silver dollar coins. The Coinage Act of 1873 brought an end to the free coining of silver in the US, a practice which allowed people to turn in silver to the Treasury and receive it back after coining.
Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan designed the now-famous Silver Dollar, which would go on to bear his name as the Morgan Silver Dollar. His depiction on the obverse features Lady Liberty in left-profile relief with E Pluribus Unum above her head and the year of issue below, with 13 stars surrounding her portrait.
The reverse of the Morgan Silver Dollar Coin PCGS MS64 bears the image of the American bald eagle with its wings spread wide. In a classic design, the eagle clutches the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other.
Each of these Morgan Silver Dollar Coins earned a Mint State 64 grade from the PCGS. Coins in this condition have average luster, and likely feature several small contact marks in groupings.

These Morgan Silver Dollars come from the original mintage period of 1878-1904, and do not include any 1921 specimens.
