 E-mail this product to a friend


• The Morgan Silver Dollar is the legendary coin of the ”Wild West.”

• It was minted from 1878-1921, and this is the last-ever coin from the famed San Francisco Mint.

• It was struck in 1921, the final year of issue for the Morgan Silver Dollar.

• The coin is named after its designer, George T. Morgan, an engraver with the U.S. Mint.

• The obverse portrays Lady Liberty wearing a slave’s cap (an ancient symbol of freedom) with the word “Liberty” inscribed on a ribbon.

• The reverse features an American eagle holding the olive branch of peace and arrows of war.

• This is the largest U.S. silver coin ever made for circulation.

• It is almost 1-1/2 inches in diameter and it contains over 3/4 ounce of pure silver.

• The silver for this coin came from the famed Comstock Lode in Nevada.

• The San Francisco Mint opened in 1854, shortly after the start of California’s “Gold Rush.”

• Its purpose was to turn California’s gold into gold coins, but it also struck silver coins for the “Wild West.”

• The coin features the coveted “S” mint mark San Francisco on the reverse, above the “DO” in “DOLLAR.”

• The U.S. Government melted than 50% of all Morgan Silver Dollars in the 1920’s to help pay for World War I.

• Millions more were destroyed, worn out in circulation, or melted for the silver.

• Just a fraction of the original coins remain, and the final-year 1921 coin is a collector’s treasure.

• There is one coin;  it was struck in .900 silver. 

• The coin comes in a custom display wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity.
