Please note that the US Mint will not be releasing these coins until October.
The Philadelphia Mint was one of just two US Mint branch facilities to issue Silver Morgan Dollars during the 28-year history of the silver dollar series. From 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921, the Philadelphia Mint issued Silver Morgan Dollars in the millions to supply the national economy with the silver dollars.

After a 17-year hiatus in coining, the Silver Morgan Dollar resumed production in 1921 for one final year as silver dollar coining resumed in the United States. The Morgan Dollar design was used through December 1921 when it was replaced by the Peace Dollar design. Only three mints struck the coins in 1921: Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Denver. This ensured that Philadelphia struck the Silver Morgan Dollars every year the US Mint issued them. With 44.69 million coins issued at Philadelphia in 1921, the US Mint set a single-year, single-mint record for coining in the series.
Lady Liberty is found on the obverse of 2021 (P) Silver Morgan Dollars. This design from George T. Morgan was created in 1878 with Anna Willess Williams sitting through several portrait sessions with Morgan to help inspire the image. There are 13 stars around the effigy of Liberty.
In the reverse design of the 2021 (P) Silver Morgan Dollar is a depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States. This 19th-century version of the national emblem was also created by Morgan and featured a front-facing bald eagle with the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons. The image of the heraldic eagle is framed by a wreath.
