Do you collect Morgan Silver Dollars? Are you looking for a 1921 issue to add to your collection? This 1921 $1 Morgan Silver Dollar NGC MS64 is a certified coin which has been assessed as having a Mint State of 64 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).

The coin is named after George T Morgan, who traveled to Philadelphia to work for the U.S. Mint in 1876, following a recommendation by C.W. Freemantle of the Royal Mint in London. Soon after, Morgan was asked to design a new silver dollar – a coin which was to become one of the most-loved of all U.S. coins.

The obverse of the coin depicts a left-facing profile portrait of Liberty, whom it was decided should be shown as an American woman, rather than a classical Greek figure. Morgan based his Liberty portrait on Philadephia teacher Anna Willess Williams, whom he considered to have a perfect profile. Anna is shown wearing a ‘Phrygian’ cap on which the word ‘LIBERTY’ can be seen, symbols of American industry and agriculture; maple, wheat, and cotton decorate the cap. Circling the portrait are 13 six-pointed stars representing the original 13 Colonies forming the United States, plus the words “E. PLURIBUS UNUM” and the issue date of 1921.

The reverse design shows an eagle with wings outstretched, based on drawings completed from nature. The eagle clasps arrows representing America’s ability to defend itself and an olive branch representing peace. The eagle is shown with a heraldic shield; below the eagle is a wreath, tied with a ribbon which encircles around 2/3 of the coin. The words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "In God We Trust” (shown in upper and lower case lettering) and the value of “ONE DOLLAR” also appear.

The background of the 1921 issue of the Morgan Silver Dollar is interesting. The 1918 Pittman Act had seen 270,232,722 silver dollars melted so the silver could be sold to Britain, to help keep their economy afloat during the First World War. The act necessitated that new dollars were produced; hence the Morgan Dollar was resurrected. As the original dies had been destroyed, Morgan had to create new master dies from which to strike the coins, giving the coins issued in 1921 a distinct look from those of other years, and today they are sought after by collectors.
