The Morgan Dollar was issued by the United States over the course of 27 consecutive years, with a 28th date mark available in 1921. The United States issued silver dollars in the late 19th and early 20th centuries through Congressional legislation that authorized the purchase of silver on the open market. That legislation had a cap on the amount of silver the US was to purchase. Once exhausted, silver dollar coining was canceled. This occurred in 1904, with no new silver dollars struck through World War I and the immediate post-war era. New legislation in 1918 authorized a resumption of silver dollar coining, with the program restarting in 1921 with the historic Morgan Dollar design.
