The Pittman Act that authorized the US government to resume the striking of fresh silver dollars for circulation resulted in the largest single-year mintage in the history of US silver dollars. The Pittman Act required the US government to melt down stored silver dollar coins for use in producing silver bullion that could be sold. While the Pittman Act required the melting of 350 million ounces of silver dollars, it also required the US Mint to coin fresh silver dollars to replace that volume of silver. The result was a record coining of 86.73 million 1921 Silver Morgan Dollars.
