1921 Morgan Dollar

A Father and Son find their first Morgan Dollar! They are pretty excited about their find as they should  be! 1921 was the last year the Morgan Dollar was minted. The Pittman Act authorized the melting of millions of dollars, but it also authorized the recoining of the silver dollar as well. So the Morgan Dollar resumed mintage for one year in 1921!

Now the Morgan Dollar ran from 1878-1918 leaving a huge gap until the 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar was minted. Just think about all that time that passed plus the fact that in 1910 all the dies had been destroyed. So Morgan had to come up with a whole new die for that one year in 1921!

Minted that year was:

Philadelphia: 44,690,000 with an est. 250  proofs

San Francisco: 21,695,000 with 0 proofs

Denver: 20,345,000 with 0 proofs
