"Morgan dollar" is the name given to the design used on US

silver dollars minted from 1878 to 1904 and in 1921. It comes from

the coin's designer, George T. Morgan, who is considered to be one

of the greatest artists to have created US coins.

the left. The image is very similar to the one that's portrayed on

the Statue of Liberty, which was designed at roughly the same time.

The reverse has a spread-winged eagle carrying arrows and an olive
