Debuting in 1878, the Silver Morgan Dollars were produced annually through 1904, with a final, separate release coming in 1921. In 2021, the US Mint marked that centennial with silver bullion Morgan Dollars honoring the five mints that historically struck the coins. Among them was the Denver Mint, which issued the coins just one time in the 1921 release. Right now, certified-perfect 2021-D Silver Morgan Dollars are available to purchase online at Silver.com

When the US Mint resumed coining Silver Morgan Dollars in 1921, having not issued the coins since 1904, two of the original four mints that issued the coins had closed. The Carson City Mint had closed in 1893, The New Orleans Mint, which issued Morgan Dollars annually from 1879 to 1904, had closed in 1909. This left only the Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints among the original producers. The Denver Mint had opened in 1906 and was tapped to strike new 1921 Silver Morgan Dollars alongside the other two existing branch mints.
The obverse of 2021-D Silver Morgan Dollars features a left-profile bust of Liberty. Designed by George T. Morgan, it depicts the female allegory of the United States wearing a Phrygian cap at the back of her head with the laurel wreath and coronet crown in her hair. There are 13 stars present on the design rim on this field, with seven to the front of Liberty’s face and six behind her head.
On the reverse side of the 2021-D Silver Morgan Dollars is an image of the heraldic eagle of the United States. Morgan’s version of the seal includes a front-facing bald eagle with the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons, as well as a wreath beneath it.
