The 1902 S Morgan Silver Dollar is a prized piece of American numismatic history, minted at the San Francisco Mint, as denoted by the “S” mint mark. This coin is part of the Morgan Silver Dollar series, which was produced by the United States Mint from 1878 to 1904 and then again in 1921. The series is named after its designer, George T. Morgan, and is celebrated for its iconic design and significant role in the silver currency of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The obverse of the 1902 S Morgan Silver Dollar features a profile portrait of Lady Liberty, designed by Morgan based on the likeness of Anna Willess Williams, who served as his model. This portrayal of Liberty is distinctive, showing her wearing a Phrygian cap — a symbol of freedom and the pursuit of liberty — adorned with cotton and wheat, which are symbols of America’s agricultural heritage. Surrounding Liberty’s profile are the words “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and the year of minting, along with thirteen stars representing the original thirteen colonies.

The reverse of the coin showcases an eagle with outstretched wings, clutching an olive branch and a bundle of arrows, symbolizing America’s desire for peace but readiness for war. The words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “ONE DOLLAR” encircle the eagle. The “S” mint mark located just above the denomination indicates its San Francisco origin.

Minted during a period of significant growth and change in the United States, the 1902 S Morgan Silver Dollar is struck from 90% silver and 10% copper, with a diameter of 38.1 mm and a weight of 26.73 grams. Its composition and size make it a substantial and valued piece for collectors.
