Having started in 1878, the Morgan Silver Dollar was produced annually, but production briefly stopped in 1904 because of a nation-wide shortage of silver in the U.S. After the production for the Morgan Dollar series resumed again for one last year 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. As a reward for ourselves and 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. While these silver dollars were minted, the Barber Half Dollar and Walking Liberty Half Dollar coins were also being produced at the same time.

Throughout his career, George T. Morgan had created 7 different coin designs, with his most famous one being the Morgan Silver Dollar. George was an assistant in the U.S. Mint when he first created the design for these coins such as the 1890-P Morgan Silver Dollar, and soon after he became the Chief Engraver. On the reverse side of the Morgan Dollar is a sturdy 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 regular school teacher by the name of Anna Williams was chosen to be the model for Lady Liberty which surprised many.

The Morgan Silver Dollar series was produced at 5 different locations: Philadelphia (P) San Francisco (S), New Orleans (O), Carson City (CC), and Denver (D). 1921 is the only year in which a Denver Minted Morgan Dollar was struck.
