One of the most famous American coin designs of the 19th century was the Morgan Silver Dollar. The first major design from a young US Mint artist, George T. Morgan, the Morgan Silver Dollar represented the reintroduction of silver dollar coining in the United States after a five-year hiatus when it debuted in 1878. After an initial run of 26 years in production, the Morgan Dollar was halted for nearly two decades before returning for one last strike in 1921.

Prior to the debut of the Morgan Silver Dollar in 1878, the United States Mint had produced the Seated Liberty Silver Dollar coin from the 1830s until 1873. As the Comstock Lode and other major silver discoveries flooded US Mint branch facilities with requests for free silver coining, legislators moved to bring an end to the system of free silver coining in the US that allowed people to bring their own silver to mint facilities to be produced into coinage. After a five-year hiatus, the silver dollar returned to fresh production with a new design.
All of the 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar Coins in this product listing come with a Mint State 63 certification from the NGC. Coins in this condition have slightly impaired mint luster, numerous small contact marks, and a few heavier contact marks present in the design field. Other flaws include a few small hairlines and detracting scuff marks. Overall, however, the coins still have a rather attractive eye appeal.
On the obverse field of the 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar Coin is an effigy of Lady Liberty. This left-profile bust of Liberty shows her figure with thick, curly hair wearing the Liberty coronet and a wreath crown on her head. This side of the coin also features the date mark and 13 stars on the design edge.
The reverse face of 1921 Morgan Silver Dollars includes a depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States. Missing from this particular version of the design is the US heraldic shield, but all other elements are present in the design.
