No United States Mint branch facility issued more Morgan Silver Dollars during the 28-year coining history of the popular 90% silver coins. The Philadelphia Mint formed the backbone of the branch system that struck Morgan Dollars over the course of the 1870s, 1880s, 1890s, 1900s, and 1920s. Of the five branch mints to issue the coins, only the Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints issued the coins every year of availability.

The United States Mint introduced the Morgan Silver Dollar in 1878. The coins were issued that year by the Philadelphia Mint, Carson City Mint, and San Francisco Mint. In the decades to come, the New Orleans Mint would issue the coins, the Carson City Mint would close and cease striking the coins, and in the final year of issue, the Denver Mint would strike coins.
Throughout the decades, the Philadelphia Mint remained a stalwart, alongside the San Francisco Mint, in striking the Morgan Dollars in every year of availability from 1878 to 1904 and again in 1921 in the final year of issue for the Morgan Dollar design. That year, the Philadelphia Mint struck an astonishing 44.69 million 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar coins.
The obverse side of 2021 (P) Morgan Silver Dollar Coins comes with the original left-profile portrait of Lady Liberty. Anna Willess Williams served as the inspiration for Morgan’s portrait of Liberty that featured on the coins.
On the reverse field of 2021 Morgan Silver Dollar bullion coins is an image of the heraldic eagle. The design of the heraldic eagle includes a bald eagle clutching the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons, with its head looking to the bird’s right at the olive branch of peace.
These 2021 (P) Morgan Silver Dollars are available with black presentation boxes and a Certificate of Authenticity from the US Mint. Each coin is housed in a capsule inside of the box. Like the original Morgan Dollars issued by the US Mint at the Philadelphia branch, there is no mint mark on this specimen.
