George T. Morgan’s “Schoolgirl” Dollar

Today, most collectors know George T. Morgan for his legendary Morgan Silver Dollar and his designs for commemoratives and medals. But many of his designs were struck as pattern coins and never released for circulation, including his 1879 Schoolgirl Dollar, which today is among the most celebrated and sought-after American coinage patterns – and 2019 marks the 140th anniversary of this design!

Now you can obtain this design as it was meant to be seen – as a breathtaking one-ounce 99.99% silver proof bearing the iconic Morgan Schoolgirl Dollar design. Featuring a portrait of a young girl wearing a single strand of pearls, Morgan’s exquisite design depicts the adolescent-looking young lady as youthful Lady Liberty facing left, her hair tied with a ribbon. The word LIBERTY is inscribed in her hair band. The “Schoolgirl” name was coined by Harlan P. Smith and David Proskey, owners of the New York Coin and Stamp Company, for an 1891 auction catalogue offering a collection that included one of these coins.

The design really stands out thanks to its immaculate proof finish. The hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes effectively produced beautifully frosted details that rise over mirror-like fields. In addition, each proof will be accompanied by a fact-filled storycard and a Certificate of Authenticity.
