A silver dollar can feasibly mean at least three different coins. From 1840-1873 the Seated Liberty dollar was minted. It depicts a seated woman (an idealized Lady Liberty). From 1878-1921 the Morgan silver dollar was minted. It features again Lady Liberty, modeled after a school teacher named Anna Williams. From 1921-1935 the Peace silver dollar was minted. It was designed by Anthony de Francisci to represent Lady Liberty modeled by his wife Teresa. Other commemorative silver dollars have been minted since, but after the 1930's and 40's real silver dollars came out of circulation. These three are probably what you are asking about.
