Silver 1/2 oz Morgan Round
The 1/2 oz Morgan Silver Round design is a replica of the original Morgan Silver Dollar, minted from 1878-1904. The Morgan Dollar was designed by George T. Morgan as a departure from the typical designs of the period. Morgan desired to feature Lady Liberty with more of an American woman's resemblance.
The resulting design has been received as a hallmark in U.S. coin design from its earliest days. The Morgan Dollar also occupied a vital period of American history among the nations of the World. With these 1/2 oz Morgan Silver Rounds, we can continue to appreciate the remarkable contribution of Morgan's original design.
- Contains: 1/2 Troy oz of .999 fine silver.
- Obverse: Features Morgan's original Lady Liberty left profile, with "Liberty" inscribed on her headband. Encircling the rim's top portion is inscribed, "E Pluribus Unum," with the rim's lower portion lined with 6-pointed stars.
- Reverse: Features the Heraldic Eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, a sign of peace. Inscriptions encircling the rim include, "Half Troy Ounce .999 Fine Silver." Above the Eagle's head is, "In God We Trust."
The U.S .Mint released the Morgan Silver Dollar in 1878 and discontinued it in 1904. After millions of Morgan Silver Dollars were melted down in 1918 (courtesy of the Pittman Act), Morgan Silver Dollars were released one final year in 1921. Morgan Silver Dollars are an important part of American silver coinage history.
Many people who buy 1/2 oz silver rounds also buy the smaller, fractional sizes, including 1/10 and 1/4 oz. Also, with your interest in the Morgan Silver Round you may want to consider the Buffalo Silver Round and the Silver Walking Liberty Round, as well.
