It's a Trade Dollar not a Morgan dollar. If you look at the back of the coin, the phrase "Trade Dollar" is under the eagle. As to value, take it to a coin dealer for an assessment it may not be genuine. The entire series is known to have had copy's and fakes made.
The US made both silver and gold $1 coins in 1879.The large silver dollar is the more common of the 2. It has a picture of Miss Liberty on the front and a spread-winged eagle on the back.
