Obverse: Left facing profile of Liberty. Anna Willess Williams, a teacher and philosophical writer, modeled for this design of Lady Liberty by George T. Morgan.

The Morgan Silver Dollar is named for the Assistant Engraver at the US Mint in 1878, George T. Morgan. His profile portrait of Lady Liberty is featured on one side of the coin, while the image of a bald eagle is featured on the opposite side. Morgan Silver Dollars were produced from 1878 until 1904, when silver stores purchased for the minting of the coins were depleted. A special, one-year minting also took place in 1921.
Morgans design for Lady Liberty featured a left-profile portrait of Liberty on the obverse side of the coin, with the phrase E Pluribus Unum engraved over her head and the year of minting engraved below. On the reverse side of the coin, the bald eagle is featured with its wings outstretched, and its talons clasping an olive branch and arrows. The phrase United States of America is stamped above the image, with the phrase One Dollar stamped below.
