1902-O United States Silver Morgan Dollar S$1, New Orleans Mint
The coin in the photos is the actual coin you will receive.
The coin is named after its designer, George T. Morgan, an English engraver who conceived both sides of the coin. On the obverse is featured a bust of Lady Liberty, complete with Morgan’s monogram near her neck. The reverse of the coin shows the Great Seal of the United States.
The coin was issued by the U.S. mint in direct response to the Comstock Lode silver strike on the eastern slope of Mount Davidson in what is now known as Virginia City, Nevada. The finding was made public in 1859, and grew tremendous attention from soon-to-be prospectors all around the country, as this was the major U.S. discovery of silver and gold ore.
Because so much silver entered the market as a result of these findings, silver prices began to decline. In order to combat this downward movement, congress passed the Bland-Allison Act which required the Treasury Department to purchase silver, and strike it as coins. The Morgan Dollar was the direct result of this mandate, and served as the only silver dollar struck between the cessation of production of the Seated Liberty Dollar in 1873 and 1904 when the Morgan Dollar was discontinued due to low silver reserves.
