Morgan Silver Dollar (90% Pure Silver) "First Year Ever Made" (oldest Morgan you can buy) Converted to a double sided Coin Ring

$256.45 $284.95

The Morgan was the reason I got into this hobby! Around 8 years ago these coin rings were going for around $400 a piece when few were making them and being a little pricy I decided to make one for myself. I've since mastered the art of making these rings after having made several thousand (litteretly) and this is still my favorite of all coins! Either side facing outward look increadile but there no denying how awesome the "In God We Trust" looks in the Old English printed on the Morgan from the 1800's. Some eight years later and I still have that first ring I made and still get people asking me questions about it - It's a real conversation piece!

- You choose which side of coin faces out (Lady Liberty w/ stars and date or Eagle w/ In God we Trust).
- If you want a specific year, just ask for what is currently in stock. If it's in stock, you get it for this price. If it's not in stock, I'll order it in but if it costs more than my bulk purchases it may cost a bit more to get a specific year and there may be a short wait time of around 4 days to get it in from my supplier.
- Ring Size
- Finish Options in Real Gold Plated, Antiqued Patina or Mirror Polish
- Straight Wall or Rount / Fat Tire style
- Regular Thickness or Ladies Thin Cut (about a 1/4" is taken off the thickness of the band)
- Crystal-Cut Ring Box (Particularly nice if this is meant to be a gift)
- Jewelers Clear-Coat Finish if you prefer (particularly nice if you patina your ring or are skin sensitive to certain metals)

The Morgan dollar was a United States dollar coin minted from 1878 to 1904, and then 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.

In 1876, George T. Morgan began creating a series of new coin designs at the behest of Director of the Mint, Dr. Henry R. Linderman.[1] Morgan opted to use the profile of an American girl to depict Liberty instead of simply creating an imaginary figure for the obverse of his new design.[1] After he rejected several possible candidates, Morgan's friend, artist Thomas Eakins, recommended Anna Williams of Philadelphia.[1] Eakins knew Williams through her father, Henry Williams.[1] She reluctantly sat for five modelling sessions with Morgan in November 1876 after being convinced to do so by friends.[1] Morgan was impressed with her profile, stating that it was the most perfect he had seen in England or America.[1] The silver dollar bearing her likeness was first struck on March 11, 1878.[1] A condition of her sitting for Morgan was that her identity be kept secret, but the subject of the portrait was revealed to be Williams shortly after the dollar was released.[1] Williams was troubled by her newly acquired fame, receiving thousands of letters and visits at both her home and workplace.[1] Williams preferred not to talk about her modelling work with Morgan, dismissing it as an "incident of my youth."

After I finish your ring, I'll send you a photograph of it before I ship. If for any reason you don't "LOVE" the finished product, just let me know. I'll either continue working it till you do love it or will gladly give you a full refund!
