This is a photo of the exact 1880 S Morgan Silver Dollar you will receive.

The 1880 S Morgan Silver Dollar is a symbol of American heritage and the enterprising spirit of the late 19th century. Minted at the San Francisco Mint, this coin encapsulates the vigor and optimism of an era that saw the United States expanding westward and solidifying its industrial capabilities.

Designed by the English engraver George T. Morgan, the obverse of the coin proudly displays a portrait of Lady Liberty. Her face is framed by her hair, which is delicately tied back with a ribbon, and she wears a Phrygian cap, a symbol of freedom and the pursuit of liberty. Encircling her are the words “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” the motto that captures the essence of the United States—out of many, one—and the year of minting, 1880. Completing the design are thirteen stars, representing the original colonies that united to form a single, powerful nation.

The reverse features an eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons, striking a balance between peace and preparedness, a perennial theme in American iconography. The eagle, an enduring emblem of the nation’s might and majesty, is surrounded by the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “ONE DOLLAR,” affirming the coin’s value and national identity.

Struck in 90% silver, the 1880 S Morgan Silver Dollar not only serves as a tangible reminder of America’s rich history but also as a testament to the country’s enduring values of unity, liberty, and strength. This coin remains a cherished piece among collectors for its beauty and symbolism, embodying the indomitable spirit of an evolving nation.
