The Morgan silver dollar symbolized America’s westward expansion, while the Peace silver dollar celebrated the nation’s emergence as a bona fide international power. The year 1921 marked a transition between the two coins — the last year of the Morgan dollar and the first of the Peace dollar — that was widely commemorated by a number of Morgan and Peace dollars on the centennial anniversary in 2021. One of the most striking is the 2021 1 oz Silver Cook Islands Morgan and Peace Dollar Coin, available from Silver.com.

Lady Liberty featured prominently as a symbol on American coinage of the 19th and early 20th centuries. She appeared in different garb on the Morgan silver dollars and its Peace counterpart, and the design of this release from the Cook Islands unites these two visions of her in celebration.
This united celebration is the major feature of the coin’s reverse side, which shows the cap-wearing Liberty of the Morgan dollar sharing a toast with the radiant crowned Liberty of the Peace dollar. The champagne flutes and robes of these Ladies Liberty are decorated with touches of gilding, and they’re accompanied by the inscriptions “Morgan,” “Peace” and “1921.”
The obverse side features an unusual blend of American and British Commonwealth imagery: an American eagle with wings outstretched is dominant, while an inset effigy of Queen Elizabeth II identifies the coin as legal tender of the Cook Islands. The inscription “E Pluribus Unum” surmounts the eagle, while the royal portrait inset is surrounded by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “1 Dollar,” “Cook Islands” and “2021.”
