About the Morgan Dollar:
The Morgan dollar was a United States dollar coin minted from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921. It was the first standard silver dollar minted since production of the previous design, the Seated Liberty dollar, ceased due to the passage of the Coinage Act of 1873, which also ended the free coining of silver. The coin is named after its designer, United States Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan. The obverse depicts a profile portrait representing Liberty, while the reverse depicts an eagle with wings outstretched. The mint mark, if any, appears on the reverse above the “o” in “Dollar”.
About the 1804 Dollar:
Another of the iconic designs in American coinage, the 1804 Dollar, is rendered as a compliment to the original design in this 2 ounce, 39mm diameter, Domed Die Silver Art Medal.
The 1804 Silver Dollar, also known as the “Bowed Liberty Dollar,” though dated 1804, was not made until 1834 and several more were even made many years after that.
