The Morgan Silver Dollar’s obverse displays a female figure of Liberty. She is wearing a Phrygian cap, which symbolized release from slavery in ancient Greece. This design element first appeared on an American coin in 1793 to represent America’s independence from Great Britain. The date, thirteen stars, and the motto “E PLURIBUS UNUM” are engraved at the periphery.
Each Morgan Silver Dollar displays an intricately engraved eagle with outstretched wings. The bird is surrounded by a wreath and the legend “IN GOD WE TRUST.” To symbolize America’s desire for peace, combined with its military strength, the eagle is shown clutching an olive branch in one talon and arrows in the other. For coins struck in Denver or San Francisco, the mintmark is present at the bottom of the reverse.
While the entire Morgan Dollar series is popular among collectors, the 1921 is a particular favorite. It holds the important status as the final year of issue–and the coin has a fascinating historical backstory. The 1921 Morgan owes its existence to the Pittman Act of 1918, which forced the U.S. Treasury to buy a massive quantity of silver and convert it into coin. Following the purchase of 209 million ounces of silver, the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco mints issued 270 million 1921 Silver Dollars.
These three-coin sets contain one specimen from each of the three mints that struck 1921 Morgans: Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. The Denver pieces are denoted by a small “D” mintmark on the reverse, while the San Francisco coins display a “S” on the back side. The branch mint issues (i.e the D and S coins) are scarcer due to their lower mintage and are infrequently seen in Almost Uncirculated condition.
The 1921 Morgans in these sets are in Almost Uncirculated (“AU”) condition, meaning that they show just the slightest signs of handling. They exhibit complete design detail, solid original mint luster, and excellent eye appeal. Each coin has the general look of an Uncirculated or Mint State specimen, but must technically grade Almost Uncirculated due to the presence of some extremely minor wear. Collectors are drawn to AU coins since they have the appearance of a higher grade but are much more affordable.
Each individual coin is delivered in a transparent vinyl flip for easy storage and inspection.
