The Morgan Silver Dollar was first issued from 1878 to 1904. During this initial run, select Morgan dollars were minted at Carson City, a mint in Nevada that closed in 1899. Morgan Dollars would continue again in 1921 before being replaced by the Peace Silver Dollar. Then in 2021, the Morgan dollar saw new life, as a limited run of centennial pieces were released by the US Mint.
