Made from the coin that powered the Industrial Revolution, this 1896 Morgan Silver Dollar showcases the symbols and values our country was founded upon. The proud American Bald Eagle holds arrows and olive branches - strength and peace.
The wreath represents victory of the eternal American spirit.
And all of that is below the motto, "In God We Trust".
As a cut coin, all of this imagery is transformed into a breathtaking example of historic engraving.
Hand crafted by Stuart Richards exclusively for Silver State Foundry, this coin was hand selected for authenticity and detail.
Each small area was pierced before the background was removed using a jeweler's saw with very fine blades. Finally, the raw edges were filed and sanded smooth to create a finish beyond compare.
In our Reno, NV studio we've added a loop and jump-ring out of sterling silver, turning it into a stunning pendant. It comes with a 22" sterling silver ball chain so you can slip this necklace on as soon as it arrives.
Removing the background of a coin to reveal the engraver's original vision is a time consuming and painstaking process. As a result, this 1896 Morgan Silver Dollar is the only one like it in the world!
