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.

During this fearsome struggle, a plethora of tokens were privately struck and distributed on both sides. Dubbed ”Civil War Tokens,” these pieces were minted primarily to replace the cent, which was scarce during the war. They carried numerous designs, from business advertisements, to patriotic issues commemorating the embattled military forces.
