The Morgan Dollar was minted from 1878 to 1904 and then again in 1921. The coin was named after its designer, U.S. Mint Chief Engraver George T. Morgan, and the obverse depicts a profile portrait representing Liberty. George T. Morgan was born in Birmingham, England, where he worked as a die engraver.
The Peace Dollar was minted from 1921 to 1928 and then again in 1934 and 1935. It was designed by Anthony de Francisci as a result of a competition to find designs representing peace. The design showed the head of the Goddess of Liberty in profile.
The design on this brand-new coin produced in 1 oz Silver Piedfort Ultra High Relief (2 oz total), shows the two profile images of the portrait representing Liberty and the portrait of the Goddess of Liberty representing peace. The dates 1921–2021 are shown beneath the two busts.
In 1876, the U.S. Mint director began efforts to redesign the U.S. Silver Dollar. He contacted the deputy master of the Royal Mint in London, looking for a die-sinker who would be willing to take the position of assistant engraver at the U.S. Mint. George T. Morgan was highly recommended and he began working for the U.S. Mint. In 1917, he became the chief engraver until he died in 1925. Therefore, an English engraver, who worked at the British Royal Mint, was behind the design of the most famous Silver Dollar.
