The Morgan Silver Dollar was the last widely circulated US silver dollar. It was originally issued by the US Mint each year from 1878 to 1904, but when the silver purchase limits backing the Morgan Dollar ended in 1904, so too did the Morgan Dollar. In 1918, Congress authorized renewed silver purchasing and silver melting to support the relaunch of the US silver dollar. The Morgan Dollar was the design chosen for this relaunch and it was struck again in 1921. Right now, certified 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

In 1921, the United States Mint resumed silver dollar coining for the first time since 1904. The American public desired a new design for the relaunch of the silver dollar, but one was not available when the silver dollar returned. The US Mint first reintroduced the Morgan Dollar, striking it through December 1921. On December 28, 1921, the Morgan Dollar was retired again in favor of the new Peace Dollar.
Lady Liberty is featured on the obverse of 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar Coins. This portrait of Liberty shows her figure in left-profile relief wearing a Phrygian cap on her head with the coronet crown and a laurel wreath. The design field includes 13 stars around the bust of Liberty and a date mark.
The heraldic eagle is on the reverse side of the 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar. This depiction of the heraldic eagle lacks a US national shield, but does show various common design elements featured on the heraldic eagle for centuries. The design includes a front-facing bald eagle with its wings spread and its talons clutching the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
