History, Information, and Value of 1903 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1903 Morgan Silver Dollar
The 1903 Morgan Silver Dollar has been described as the best of the series struck at the Philadelphia Mint in terms of overall quality. The mintage was well done and specimens possess nice striking quality with bright luster and a satiny sheen. Proofs usually exhibit a medium to subpar strike with no cameo contrast due to polishing. While the Mint State pieces are often superb in appearance, you’ll need to dig deeply to find a Proof with even a modicum of cameo contrast and decent eye appeal. Be picky!
Easy to Find: Name your grade, EF or AU, and a specimen won’t be far away.
This Coin Will Be Nice Looking if Your Search Hard Enough: Uncirculated examples of the date are plentiful in today’s marketplace. There is no need to settle for Mint State-60 to 62 examples when higher grades are found with no difficulty. These are typically sharp and attractive but exceptions abound so choose carefully. No need to avoid a pleasing MS-65 coin, as these can be had with just a little patience and the cost is not significant.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1903.” The reverse text on the Liberty dollar reads “United States of America; In God We Trust; One Dollar.” The obverse of the silver one dollar coin has a bust of a female facing the left wearing a cap and small crown, with flowers tucked in her hair and stars surrounding the border. The reverse of the Morgan Dollar has an eagle in the center with its wings spread and a wreath surrounding.
