The Morgan Dollar inspired 1 Troy oz. .999 fine silver artistic round from the Highland Mint was created to pay homage to one of America’s most beloved coins. The initial design, originally engraved by George T. Morgan, and for which the coin would eventually derive its namesake, was minted for the first time in 1878 at the United States Mint facility located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Just like the iconic original, this art round will depict a lovely image of Lady Liberty in profile, facing left, wearing a Greek cap with the word “LIBERTY” inscribed into the headband. The reverse side of the round will retain the major design element of the American eagle with wings outstretched, clutching arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The back side of this artistic round will also carry the new inscriptions of “ONE TROY OUNCE” and “.999 FINE SILVER” to display the weight and purity of each individual round. The masterful craftsmen of the Highland Mint worked diligently to capture and replicate the very essence of the original Morgan Silver Dollar with this tribute piece made from pure .999 fine silver for the selective collector who appreciates quality.
