It has been 100 years since a monumental striking of silver dollars in the United States. In 1921, the US Mint reintroduced fresh silver dollars for the first time since 1904. In doing so, it struck two versions of the coin to mark an end to the Morgan Dollar Series and the start of the Peace Dollar Series.

From January to late December in 1921, the US Mint resumed coining of silver dollars with the historic Morgan Dollar design. In the final days of December, it began coining the new Peace Dollar silver coin with a new image of Liberty. That 1921 release marked the end of the Morgan Dollar Series, the second-longest-running design in the silver dollar series, and the first issue of the Peace Dollar Series, the last circulation silver dollar in US history.
The obverse of 2021 Proof Silver BVI 100th Anniversary Morgan and Peace Dollars features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief with earrings, a necklace, and the George IV State Diadem on her figure. The inscriptions identify the nation of issue, date, and the monarch’s name.
On the reverse side of 2021 5 oz Proof Silver BVI Morgan and Peace Dollars are the two images of Liberty. Inspired by the final two silver dollar designs in US history, George T. Morgan’s effigy of Liberty is featured in the foreground. Anthony de Francisci created the effigy of Liberty that features in the background.
