The United States Mint issued the Silver Morgan Dollars for circulation use in the US from 1878 to 1904. Though this was the original production run, the US Mint ended production in 1904 as its Congressional mandate to buy silver for coining ended. In 1918, the US Mint received fresh authorization to return silver dollars to active coining and did so in 1921 with one final strike of the Silver Morgan Dollars.

Silver Morgan Dollars were designed in 1878 by George T. Morgan, a man who enjoyed a prolific career with the United States Mint. He had just recently come to the US Mint from Birmingham, England, having been unable to land a job as an engraver with the Royal Mint of England. He was an assistant engraver in 1878 when he developed the obverse image of Liberty in left-profile relief and the heraldic eagle on the reverse. Morgan would go on to serve with the US Mint until his death in 1925, at which time he was serving as the Seventh Chief Engraver of the United States Mint.
Silver Morgans were struck by the US Mint initially from 1878 to 1904 under the authorization granted to the US Mint and Treasury under the Bland-Allison Act. When the US Mint had depleted the silver reserves procured through the Bland-Allison Act’s purchasing requirements, Silver Morgan Dollar coining ended in 1904. No fresh dollars were struck until 1921. The Pittman Act of 1918 authorized the return of silver dollars. The US Mint resumed coining from January until December 27, 1921, using the Silver Morgan Dollar design, making its last strike 100 years ago.
