History Of The Morgan Silver Dollar

Morgan Silver Dollar Design

The design of this coin is especially interesting because Morgan aimed to depict an American woman on the coin for the first time, instead of the usual Greek Style profile. Morgan’s friend, artist Thomas Eakins, suggested he use Anna Willess Williams of Philadelphia as a model. In total, Morgan had five sittings with Williams; he declared her profile to be the most perfect he had seen.
