The Last Morgan Silver Dollars
Facing underwhelming demand and a dwindling supply of silver bullion, the U.S. Mint shut down its production of Morgan Silver Dollars in 1904. More than a decade later, the Pittman Act of 1918 resulted in the melting of more than 270 million Morgans stockpiled in U.S. Treasury vaults. The Pittman Act also required the striking of millions of new silver dollars. These were to be the Peace Silver Dollars commemorating the peace following World War I. Before the Mint could get the Peace Dollar ready, they needed to get out tens of millions of silver dollars first – and fast! So, in 1921 the Morgan returned for a marathon mintage of more than 85 million coins spread out over three mints. The Peace Dollar made its debut late in 1921 and finally began to circulate in 1922, retiring the iconic Morgan design from America’s silver dollars for good.
Despite those huge numbers, the resulting decades have not been kind to 1921 Morgans. Subsequent melting and circulation have whittled away their existence to only a small fraction of their initial mintages. Fortunately, GovMint.com has a procured a selection of these last-year-of-issue Morgans, and they're available to you at a great value!
