During the years 1878-1921, more than half a billion Morgan Silver Dollars were minted, making it one of America's best known coins. Claim one for yourself, collection or friend today.

The Morgan Dollar holds a special place in U.S. coinage as it was the first coin to feature Lady Liberty with an American look, rather than the traditional Greek style. Her cap is adorned with wheat and cotton as a tribute to America's agricultural history.

The image of the eagle was also updated for the Morgan Dollar, showing a proportionally correct eagle with beautifully designed feathers. He carries an olive branch, showing America's desire for peace, and is perched atop a bundle of arrows, signifying America's readiness to defend her borders against attack.

The Morgan Dollar flooded the markets from 1878-1904. Nearly two decades after production halted, the Morgan Dollar was seen again for one year only, in 1921, due to a renewed desire for this iconic, beautiful design.

The history of the 1921 Morgan Dollar

Before 1921 Morgan Dollars were minted, the popular Silver coins had not been produced since 1904. At that time, production of Morgan Silver Dollars ceased because the demand for Silver Dollars was low, yet the supply was abundant. Excess Silver Dollars were stored in the U.S. Treasury vaults until 1918 when the Pittman Act, passed by Congress, required the melting of over 270 million of these Silver coins in response to Great Britain’s request to buy Silver bullion from the U.S. government. Great Britain needed to buy Silver from the U.S. in order to prevent an economic disaster because rumors were being spread that Great Britain could no longer guarantee its Silver certificates.

Why invest in the 1921 Morgan Dollar?

Many consider the 1921 Morgan Dollar to be a wise investment because it was the last year minted. Silver coins also have value both in Silver content and collectibilty. Silver, as found in Morgan Silver Dollars, is increasing in demand as more uses are discovered for this malleable, naturally antimicrobial and corrosion-resistant Precious Metal. Morgan Dollar values may increase due to this increasing demand, adding to the Silver coins’ numismatic or collector value. The U.S. coins are also sought after because they are legal tender coins recognized around the world for having value well beyond their face value.

Acquire the 1921 Morgan Dollar featuring George T. Morgan’s Lady Liberty.

1921 Morgan Dollars are the last Silver Dollars produced with George T Morgan’s iconic Lady Liberty design on the obverse. The Lady Liberty portrayed on Morgan Silver Dollars represents a departure from the traditional depiction of Lady Liberty based on Greek design. Because these were U.S. coins, Morgan favored introducing details to his Lady Liberty design that were truly American such as sprigs of cotton and wheat tucked into her cap to pay homage to the United States agricultural background. He also used an American model for the Silver coins to further inspire his design.

Love the item.

I purchased this item to add a Morgan to my order. It is a beautiful coin with great details. There are some marks on the face that really bother me every time I look at it. I love the coin but I wish I would have received on which did not have the aforementioned damage for being BU, while I understand the age of the coin.

Understand how 1921 Morgan Dollars are priced, and become a better collector.

Morgan Dollar values are affected by their numismatic or collector value. Higher premiums for Morgan Silver Dollars, along with other vintage Silver coins such as Silver Liberty Seated Dollars, are based on rarity, historical significance, condition and beauty of the coins. The premium price of these U.S. Silver coins starts with their worth based on the Silver spot price, which represents the cost of one troy ounce of unfabricated Silver. The premium for the Silver bullion also includes the numismatic value, as well as markups for production, distribution and a small dealer fee.
