Designs of the 2021 Morgan Silver Dollar
The Mint took great care to recreate the designs of the original coin. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty. She wears a Phrygian cap and a crown representing unity, consisting of a Southern crop, cotton, and a Northern one, wheat. Also, on her head is a ribbon that bears her name, “LIBERTY.” Two inscriptions encircle her effigy, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “2021,” and thirteen stars.
A heraldic eagle holds arrows and an olive branch within an open wreath on the reverse. The national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST,” is inscribed above its head. Rim inscriptions read, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “ONE DOLLAR.”
