  • Description:

    The Morgan Dollar, minted in 1921, represents one of the most cherished pieces in American numismatic history. These silver dollars are not just currency but a storied part of the United States' past, marking the return of the Morgan Dollar design after a 17-year hiatus. Originally introduced in 1878 and designed by George T. Morgan, the coin's revival in 1921 signals the end of the Morgan series before transitioning to the Peace Dollar later that year. This batch of 100 pieces in Extra Fine to Almost Uncirculated condition offers a unique snapshot of American history and the Morgan Dollar's final year of production.

    The design of the Morgan Dollar is celebrated for its depiction of Lady Liberty on the obverse, which was modeled after Anna Willess Williams, whose portrait was considered the most perfect representation of Lady Liberty at the time. The reverse features an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, embodying the United States’ military readiness and desire for peace. Each detail, from Liberty’s hair strands to the feathers on the eagle, showcases Morgan’s mastery in art and his ability to infuse symbolism into a functional piece of currency.

    The condition of these Morgan Dollars—ranging from Extra Fine to Almost Uncirculated—indicates that each coin has maintained much of its original luster, with only slight wear from brief circulation. Extra Fine coins show very little wear, mostly on the highest points, while Almost Uncirculated coins are closer to their mint state, showing only trace wear on the most elevated surfaces. The preservation of detail in these coins, especially given their age and the softness of silver, is a testament to the quality and durability of the Mint's production standards during that era.

    The packaging of these Morgan Dollars involves tubes of 20 coins to prevent scratches and environmental damage, particularly tarnishing common in silver coins. This method ensures that each Morgan Dollar remains as pristine as possible, retaining both its numismatic and aesthetic value.

    The mintage of the 1921 Morgan Dollar was among the highest in the series due to the reactivation of the design to use up the remaining silver bullion purchased under the Pittman Act of 1918. This act mandated the melting and recoinage of millions of silver dollars, and the 1921 Morgans represented the last use of that silver stockpile. While millions were produced, finding them in higher grades like Extra Fine to Almost Uncirculated remains a challenge due to the bulk releases into circulation and subsequent wear over the years.

    In summary, the 1921 Morgan Dollars in Extra Fine to Almost Uncirculated condition are not only pieces of America’s late industrial era but also symbols of the country's rich monetary history. These coins are highly valued by collectors for their historical significance, intricate designs, and the stories they carry as part of America's silver currency legacy. Owning a batch of these Morgan Dollars offers a tangible connection to the past and a sturdy investment in the field of numismatics.
