George T. Morgan’s First Dollar

Former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver, Designer Extraordinaire

Numismatists will immediately recognize one of the most famous U.S. coin designs in history, the Morgan Silver Dollar. Named after its designer, George T. Morgan, this dollar circulated across the nation, from the Wild West to the busy streets of New York. This coin was the workhorse of the American economy from 1878-1921. While many collectors seek out Morgan Dollars, few know that this was not Morgan’s first dollar.

Making Numismatic History 

After resting in storage of the Smithsonian for 40 years, a treasure was found in a sketchbook that belonged to George Morgan! On page 31, Morgan had drafted a design for a U.S. Silver Trade Dollar that never made it into circulation. This design was never seen by researchers or collectors…until now!
