The 1888 S Morgan Silver Dollar is a cherished piece from the Morgan dollar series, specifically minted at the San Francisco Mint, as indicated by the “S” mint mark. This coin holds significant historical and collector value due to its origin and minting details.

Designed by George T. Morgan, the obverse of the coin presents a portrait of Lady Liberty facing left, wearing a Phrygian cap, a symbol of freedom, which is adorned with wheat and cotton bolls to signify America’s agricultural heritage. “E PLURIBUS UNUM” is inscribed above her head, symbolizing unity from diversity, with the date of minting, 1888, featured prominently below. Surrounding Liberty are thirteen stars, representing the original American colonies.

The reverse of the coin features an eagle with its wings spread wide, holding an olive branch and a bundle of arrows in its talons, symbolizing America’s commitment to peace but readiness for war. A wreath encircles the lower half of the eagle, and the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” is inscribed in a Gothic script above the eagle’s head. The outer edge of the coin bears the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “ONE DOLLAR.”

This coin is composed of 90% silver and 10% copper, weighing 26.73 grams and measuring 38.1 mm in diameter. The 1888 S Morgan Silver Dollar is not only a piece of monetary history but also a work of numismatic art, appealing to collectors for its intricate design and the historical context it represents.
