Although not widely appreciated for its design at the time, the Morgan Silver Dollar has gone down in American history as one of the most coveted coin designs in all of the American coinage. Created in 1878, this iconic design was once believed to be largely lost to history with the exception of a handful of coins in rough condition. Today, the Morgan Silver Dollar Coin is available to you online from Cash For Any Coins.
The Morgan Silver Dollar coins were struck in 1921 by the United States Mint. The Morgan Silver Dollar was a truly unique coin in a number of ways. First and foremost, its introduction into circulation as a silver dollar coin in 1878 ended a five-year span in which no silver dollars were produced by the US Mint.
Morgan Silver Dollars were produced by the Mint from 1878 to 1904, and then production was halted coining of the Morgans after the passage of a bill under the Sherman Silver Purchase Act that forced the US Mint to stop striking the coins once silver reserves purchased in the Act were depleted.
The 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar marked the reintroduction of silver dollars after World War I, but it was a short-lived return for the Morgan design. The Philadelphia Mint struck 44.69 million coins that year with no mint mark, while the Denver Mint struck 20.34 million with a D mark and the San Francisco Mint struck 21.695 million with an S mint mark.
