The Morgan dollar was minted from 1878 to 1904 and then again in 1921. The coin was named after its designer, United States Coin chief engraver George T Morganand the obverse shows a profile portrait representing freedom. George T Morgan was born in Birmingham, Englandwhere he worked as a stamp engraver.
the Peace Dollar was minted from 1921 to 1928 and then again in 1934 and 1935. It was designed by Anthony of Francisci as a result of a competition to find designs depicting peace. The design showed the head of the goddess of liberty in profile.
In 1876, the US Mint Director began redesigning the US silver dollar. He contacted the deputy master of the Royal coin in London, looking for a puncher who would be willing to fill the position of Assistant Engraver at the US Mint. George T. Morgan was highly recommended and began working for the US Mint. In 1917 he became chief engraver until he died in 1925. Hence, an English engraver working at Britain’s Royal Mint was behind the design of the most famous silver dollar.
