Full Description

In 1921, after over 16 years, the Morgan Silver Dollar was minted again for one final year. The first Morgan Dollars, minted from 1878 to 1904 were authorized by a law that required the U.S. Treasury to buy millions of ounces of silver and mint it into coins. However, in 1904 that silver was depleted and the U.S. Mint no longer produced the Morgans. In 1918, the Pittman act authorized the melting and recoining of millions of silver dollars. These were minted in 1921 using the George T. Morgan design. The Morgan Dollar offered here is in Mint State-63, as certified by PCGS, and it is an excellent choice for numismatic collectors.

Obverse

The front of the Morgan Dollar shows Lady Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap, a soft, conical cap that symbolizes liberty. Morgan chose as his model Anna Willess Williams, a woman he said had the most perfect features of any woman he had seen. Below Liberty’s head is the year, to the sides are 13 stars representing the original colonies, and above is the motto ‘E Pluribus Unum.’

Reverse

The back of the coin shows an eagle with its wings outstretched. It holds in its claws arrows and an olive branch. ‘In God We Trust’ is shown in a line above the eagle, showing between its wings. Below the eagle is the face value of ‘One Dollar.’ Encircling the eagle are the words ‘United States of America.
