About this Product
 
The Last Regular Issue Morgan Dollar Ever Made: The Uncirculated 1921 Philadelphia Mint Issue

The Morgan Dollar is America’s most sought after coin because it hits the collector’s tri-fecta: It was the largest silver coin ever issued for circulation in the United States, it was the longest tenured silver coin in the United States Mint history, and it also has one of the best “stories” of any collector’s coin around. Known to many a collector as the ‘True’ Silver Dollar of the “Wild West”, many famous outlaws throughout American frontier history made their living by robbing banks and trains for their bags of Morgan Dollars…Who would have thought they would be even more popular 100 years later!

The Comstock Lode and the Silver Dollar that Saved the ‘Gold Mint’

The San Francisco Mint was opened in 1854 primarily to serve the gold mines of California during the booming Gold Rush. By the late 1870's, the volume of gold had begun to slow to a trickle and the primary purpose of the mint was due for a change…and The Comstock Lode came to the rescue! The Comstock Lode was the first major U.S. discovery of silver, and was located under what is now Virginia City, Nevada. This enormous silver hoard lead to the passing of the Bland Allison Act of 1878, an act that lead to the release of a new U.S. coin...The Iconic “Wild West” Morgan Silver Dollars.

The 1921 Morgan Dollar from the Philadelphia Mint

The Morgan Silver Dollar was viewed by many as the #1 coin ever issued by the U.S. Mint, and it is easy to see why! Production of the Morgan Silver Dollar began in 1878 and was originally minted at only three United States Mints: The Philadelphia, Carson City, and Fabled San Francisco Mints. The Morgan Dollar was minted from 1878 till 1904, and was then brought back in 1921 after a 17 year hiatus for one final striking...thankfully giving collector's one last regular issue year of the iconic ‘Wild West’ silver dollar to add to their collections!
