These 1882-S Morgan Dollar Coins reside in special slabs from PCGS. Ideal for both storage and display purposes, these slabs also include a label bearing the coin’s official grade of Mint State 64. When certifying this coin, PCGS used the standard grading scale of 1-70. And in order to achieve a Mint State designation, a coin must score between 60-70.

Lady Liberty features on the obverse of Morgan Silver Dollar Coins. This beloved effigy shows Liberty with a Phrygian cap and crown of wheat as she faces left. The design is based on the profile of Anna Williams, a schoolteacher from Philadelphia. She ultimately sat five times for Morgan until the portrait had reached perfection.

A bald eagle flies with open wings on the reverse of 1882-S Morgan Silver Dollars. As the bird looks left, it carries both arrows and an olive branch in its talons. Beneath this motif, you will find the San Francisco “S” mintmark. There are also inscriptions across the rim reading “United States of America, In God We Trust, One Dollar.”

Generations of collectors have sought the Morgan Silver Dollar for its aesthetic beauty and historic intrigue. These Silver Dollars are strongly associated with the American West, a period that roughly spanned from 1865-1900. During this time, the Morgan made its debut in Philadelphia following the 1878 Bland-Allison Act. But as silver was pouring in from Comstock Lode in Nevada, the U.S. Mint moved West, with new branches opening in both Carson City and San Francisco.
