Production of the Morgan Silver Dollar initially began in 1878, having briefly stopped in 1904 because of a nation-wide shortage of silver in the U.S. Production for the Morgan Dollar series commenced again for one last time in 1921 because in 1918 after we had won the World War, the Pittman Act was passed, which allowed for our U.S. government to buy and melt hundreds of millions of dollars worth of silver that would be used to create more coins. To reward ourselves for our achievement of victory in the World War, the U.S. government decided to produce the Peace Silver Dollar, and prior to the Morgan Silver Dollar series was the Seated Liberty Dollar series. At the time when these silver dollars were being minted, the Barber Half Dollar and Walking Liberty Half Dollar coins were also being produced.

George T. Morgan had created 7 different coin designs, his most successful one being the Morgan Silver Dollar. When George first created the design for these coins such as the 1890 O Morgan Silver Dollar, he was an assistant in the U.S. Mint, but soon after he became the Chief Engraver. On the reverse side of the Morgan Dollar is a robust American Bald Eagle with 7 tail feathers that is holding arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other talon. On the obverse side of the coin is Lady Liberty’s charming face with 13 stars surrounding her image, with each star representing the original 13 colonies. A school teacher named Anna Williams was chosen to model for Lady Liberty which surprised many.

The Morgan Silver Dollar series was produced at five different locations: Philadelphia (P) San Francisco (S), New Orleans (O), Carson City (CC), and Denver (D). The last year of issue for the Morgan Dollar series was 1921, and this was the first time that the Denver Mint struck a Morgan Silver Dollar.

Commonalities Morgan Silver Dollars share are a $1 face value, being made from 90% silver, 10% copper, weighing 26.73 grams, and having a diameter of 38.1 mm. The mintage of the 1890-O Morgan Silver Dollar was 10,701,100, which makes it much rarer than the Philadelphia which has a mintage of 16,802,000. Morgan Dollars have not been produced in nearly a century, and these were just a few reasons as to why the coins have and always will be beloved by both investors and collectors.
