This is the brief history of the 1921 Silver Morgan Dollar.

The 1921 Silver Morgan Dollar is the final year of issue for the Morgan Dollar.  Like the 1878 to 1904 Morgan Dollars, this coin was also designed by George T Morgan.  George was an English immigrant who came to The United States in 1876.  There was a large mintage of coins in each of the 3 mints that year.  Philadelphia (44,690,000), Denver (20,345,000), and San Francisco (21,695,000) however that allows them to be priced below a 1904 and Prior Morgan Dollar.

One of the cool things about the 1921 Silver coin is that this is the first and only time a Morgan Dollar was minted at the Denver Mint.  The 1921 Silver Dollar design was slightly different than the prior years with a few slight refinements that were used for that one year only and it was also produced with completely different hubs than the earlier years.


This is the perfect coin to add to your portfolio if you want the allure Morgan Dollar but do not want to pay the high premium of the Pre 1921’s, then this is the coin for you.
