The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most iconic former circulation coin designs in American history. Not a favored design in its day in production, the second half of the 20th century saw renewed interest in the historic design from the US silver dollar. The final year of issue for the Morgan Dollar was 1921, when it was produced from January until late December.

Morgan Silver Dollars were introduced by the United States Mint in 1878. When this new silver dollar design debuted, it not only marked the launch of a new coin design for the silver dollar, it also marked the restart of silver dollar coining in the US. The production of new silver dollars had halted in 1873, along with the free coining of silver at the US Mint, and the result was a default suspension of the Seated Liberty Dollar.
All of these 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar Coins are available to you in Mint State 63 condition. The PCGS assigns the MS63 certification to coins that have slightly impaired mint luster with a variety of visible flaws. This includes the potential for numerous small contact marks and a few scattered heavier marks. Small hairlines and other detracting scuffs are possible.
Lady Liberty features on the obverse side of 1921 Morgan Silver Dollars. The left-profile bust of Liberty featured on this side of the coin captures a Greco-Roman-inspired portrait of Liberty that showcases her hair slightly up in a Phrygian cap with a coronet crown on her head as well that reads “Liberty.”
The heraldic eagle of the United States is visible in the reverse design of 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar Coins. This iconic emblem representative of the nation has been modified and modernized countless times throughout American history, with this particular design coming from George T. Morgan, the designer of both elements on the Morgan Silver Dollar.
The Morgan Silver Dollar was initially offered by the United States Mint from 1878 to 1904. The production of new silver dollars ended in 1904 and would not resume until after World War I. When silver dollars returned in 1921, the US Mint first restarted coining with the Morgan design. By December 1921, the new Peace Dollar design was ready and in production, replacing the Morgan for good.
