Morgan Silver Dollar

Those that are new to the hobby of coin collecting may be familiar with the more common United States silver dollar coins such as the Morgan and Peace Dollars. However, many collectors may not be aware of some of the earliest silver dollars the were introduced by our founding fathers - the Flowing Hair and Draped Bust Dollars.

The Flowing Hair Dollar holds claim the distinctive honor of being the first silver dollar issued by the United States of America. The coins were produced to help our youthful country in achieving financial growth and independence, and were certainly successful as they were circulated in quite great numbers taking into account the comparatively small U.S. population at the time.

The historic silver coins were minted for a period of only two years. Production ran from 1794 until 1795 at the Mint's Philadelphia facility exclusively. The 1794 version is exceptionally rare with a mintage of no more than 1,758 coins. The 1795 version is somewhat simpler to get hold of with a much bigger production number of 160,295 coins. Even though the coins were produced in much larger numbers in 1795, the coin is still difficult to find, especially when seeking out high grade examples.

Approval for the production of the coin was given under the 1792 Coinage Act. This famed undertaking established the United States Mint and also synchronized the coinage of the whole country. The dollar was chosen as the definitive unit of American currency, and the manufacture of a fair amount of distinctive coins was brought about. This coinage came to include half-cents, cents, half-dimes, dimes, quarter-dollars and one-dollar denominations.

Featuring a design by the Robert Scot, the Mint's Chief Engraver, the coin's obverse displays a portrait of Miss liberty, who is looking to the the coin's right side. 15 stars surround the coin, signifying the number of states during that time. Also imprinted are the word "Liberty" along the the upper edge of the coin, with the production date of the coin along the bottom. The reverse of the coin showcases an eagle that has it's wings spread and a and surrounded by a wreath made of laurel. The inscription features the motto "United States of America". The denomination appears along the edge of the coin in the phrase "HUNDRED CENTS DOLLAR OR UNIT".

The creation of Draped Bust Dollar brought a few improvements to the design of previous silver dollar coin, eventually taking it's place among as one of the most popular coins in the history of the U.S. Mint. The Draped Bust version, produced between the years of 1798 up until 1803, brought about some relatively minor changes to the previous version.

The design of the American eagle that was featured on the reverse side was improved upon quite a bit, making the mascot of our youthful nation appear a bit more sturdy than in the previous rendition. There were also some improvements made to the appearance of Lady Liberty on the coin's obverse with some softening of her features, giving her a more dignified and attractive overall appearance. The view of her portrait was also extended a bit further to include her upper body, giving the coin a much more balance visual appearance.
