The first US silver dollar to go into regular production was the Seated Liberty Dollar. This coin design was used across a number of US silver denominations starting in various years in the late 1830s. The Seated Liberty Dollar was adopted in 1840 and suspended in 1873. It remains the longest-running silver dollar design.
Morgan Silver Dollars are the second longest-running US silver dollars and were in production from 1878 to 1904 and again in 1921. Not only is it the second longest-running silver dollar, but the Morgan Silver Dollar is also one of two silver dollars ever to be issued in two different runs. The other was the Peace Dollar issued from 1921 to 1928 and again in 1934-1935.
The obverse side of the 1921 Morgan Silver Dollars features a left-profile bust of Lady Liberty. George T. Morgan was the designer of this Liberty bust and created a portrait of Liberty with thick curls in her hair, the Liberty coronet, and a wreath crown on her head.
