Following the Coinage Act of 1873, the United States Mint began production of the now iconic Morgan Silver Dollar. Featuring a classic design by future Chief Engraver George T. Morgan, this piece consists of 90% silver and serves as a great introduction for those interested in vintage American coinage. Right now, you can buy 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar Coins online from Provident Metals.
Each 1921 Morgan Dollar in this Provident Metals listing online will arrive to you housed in a protective plastic coin flip. Struck in 90% silver, these coins bear a face value of $1 backed by the United States government.

On the obverse side of this 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar, there is a portrait of Lady Liberty. Modeled after a school teacher named Anna Williams, this effigy shows Liberty facing left and wearing a wreath and a Phrygian cap. Along the lower rim, there is a row of thirteen stars. Youll see inscriptions as well that read E PLURIBUS UNUM, 1921.
The reverse of 1921 Silver Dollar Coins contains a heraldic eagle motif. Here the eagle holds an olive branch and arrows in its talons, which symbolize war and peace. Other features on the reverse include laurel branches and inscriptions reading UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ONE DOLLAR, IN GOD WE TRUST.
George T. Morgan was born in England in 1845. Morgan was initially employed at the British Royal Mint, where he gained a strong reputation as a hard-working and talented assistant engraver. At the time, the US Mint was concerned that the general public was dissatisfied with the current state of American coinage, especially in comparison to the British productions overseas. Morgan was thus recruited to become assistant Chief Engraver at the Philadelphia Mint in 1876. Two years later, his masterpiece, the Morgan Silver Dollar, would enter circulation.
