Some coins are valuable for their rarity, others for their historic importance. Then there are some that are valuable for the unique artistry with which they are rendered. The 1883-O U.S. Morgan Silver Dollar, designed by United States Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan and minted in New Orleans, is among the thousands of historic and valuable coins offered online by International Coins & Currency (ICCOIN).
Since 1975, ICCOIN has been helping collectors find rare and unique coins at affordable prices. This vintage silver dollar, issued over a century and quarter ago, was struck by the historic New Orleans Mint in the heyday of the Morgan silver dollar series.
The Morgan silver dollar, a United States dollar coin minted intermittently from 1878 to 1921, is the most collected of all classic U.S. Mint silver dollars. Its 1883 New Orleans mintage of 8,725,000 was well below the principal Philadelphia Mint’s 12.2 million output for that year. ICCOIN is making these Brilliant Uncirculated condition coins available through its website, http://www.iccoin.com.
The coin is named for its designer, United States Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan. The detail and imagery on the Morgan Silver Dollar are notable. The obverse depicts a profile portrait representation of Liberty, designed using an American woman rather than the usual Greek–style figures, while the reverse depicts a bald eagle with wings outstretched.
ICCOIN’s regular prices for the New Orleans and Philadelphia Brilliant Uncirculated issues are $85 and $89, respectively. But, with this extra special deal, you’ll pay just $59 for the scarcer 1883-O issue!
