|Want to own a rare piece of history? The 1894 Morgan Dollar is the perfect choice. Made up of 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper, this Morgan Dollar is 38.1 mm in diameter while weighing 26.73 grams. Tracing its origins back to the Mint Act of 1873 and the Bland-Allison Act of 1878, this silver dollar has deep historical roots. Named after its designer, George T. Morgan, this 1894 Morgan Dollar is a part of the Morgan Dollar series that was minted without interruption from 1878-1904, and again in 1921. Interestingly, as a representation of liberty, this silver dollar depicts an American woman, presumably Miss Anna W. Williams, a schoolteacher from Philadelphia, instead of the usual Greek–style figure. What’s more, this Morgan Dollar is ranked second amongst the lowest mintages for the entire series as only 1,10,000 coins were produced, thereby making it a premium across all grades.|
