Coming Soon: 2021 Morgan Silver Dollars from the United States Mint

The Morgan Silver Dollar is among the best-known and most beloved coins in American history. To this day, a century after the coin was last released into circulation, Morgan Dollars are often prized and passed down for generations. In 2021, the United States Mint is marking the centennial anniversary of its final issue with 2021 Morgan Dollars.

While information about the program is still developing, the Mint intends to strike these 100th anniversary Morgan Dollars at three mints: Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. Original Morgan Dollars were struck using .900 fine silver; however, the 2021 issues will be struck on .999 fine silver planchets similar to those used for modern commemorative silver dollars.  

Many exciting details remain to be revealed about the 2021 Morgan program, so make sure to check back often to find out the latest information. This page will be updated regularly.

History of the Morgan Silver Dollar

The Morgan debuted in 1878. Designer George T. Morgan made history by choosing Anna Willess Williams, an American-style figure, as his model for Liberty. Up to that point, Greek models had been used. After a sixteen-year hiatus, the coin returned in 1921 for a single issue. 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of that final Morgan Dollar release. 

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.”
