U.S. Morgan Silver Dollars, New Orleans “O” Mint
Gem Brilliant Uncirculated, MS 65 condition
U.S. Morgan Silver Dollars are the most popular and widely collected of all U.S. silver coins. Minted between 1878 and 1904, and again in 1921, in Philadelphia, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Carson City, these classic silver coins served as the backbone of daily commerce, both nationally and internationally, for decades.
Named after their designer, James T. Morgan, Morgan Silver Dollars are also known as Liberty Head dollars because of the radiant, dignified profile of Miss Liberty featured on the obverse. The reverse depicts the inspiring image of an American Eagle, standing tall with widespread wings, perched confidently upon the olive branch of peace and the arrows of military strength.
Minted right in the legendary French Quarter
Located on the edge of the legendary French Quarter, adjacent to the Mississippi river docks, the New Orleans Mint was the first branch mint in the United States. Before it opened in 1838, every U.S. coin had been struck at the original mint in Philadelphia. President Andrew Jackson himself pushed for the establishment of the new mint order to meet the needs of the growing Southern States and to spur the nation’s Westward Expansion.
Home of the French Quarter, Mardi Gras, jazz and jambalaya, New Orleans has always been an exotic and truly international port of call, and is still synonymous with a touch of wildness in our national imagination. Minted between 1879 and 1904, “O” mint Morgan Silver Dollars are a wonderful reminder of the rich history and cultural legacy of Mississippi River paddlewheelers, plantations, street cars, and the genteel Old South at its best.
