Throughout the majority of the 1880s, the Philadelphia Mint, situated in the northeastern region, and the New Orleans Mint in the American South were the primary sources of Morgan Silver Dollar production. In 1885, the Philadelphia Mint minted an astounding 17.787 million coins, while the New Orleans Mint contributed an additional 9.185 million coins.


The obverse of all 1885 Morgan Silver Dollar Coins showcases the elegant Lady Liberty. Designed by George T. Morgan, this captivating portrayal presents Liberty in left-profile relief, wearing a coronet crown and a laurel wreath in her hair. Notably, a Phrygian cap adorns the back of her head, symbolizing freedom. Inscriptions read E PLURIBUS UNUM, LIBERTY, and 1885.


On the reverse of each 1885 Morgan Dollar Coin, you will find the magnificent Heraldic eagle of the United States. Also designed by Morgan, this awe-inspiring depiction features the bald eagle in front-facing relief. With its talons gripping the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace, the eagle spreads its wings wide, noticeably omitting the US national shield. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, and ONE DOLLAR.


The concept of manifest destiny, the belief that it was America’s destiny to expand across the continent, was still influential in the 1880s. The West was being settled by pioneers and immigrants, and the completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad in 1869 further facilitated westward migration and trade.


These 1885 Morgan Dollar Silver Coins are available in MS65 condition. Coins with this grade exhibit an appealing, high-quality mint luster, with only a few minor scattered contact marks or possibly two larger marks.
