From 1878 to 1904, the United States Mint issued millions of Silver Morgan Dollars into circulation. The coins were exceptionally popular in the American West and were representative of the westward expansion of the nation, as well as its industrialization and economic growth. In fact, new branch mints in the West played a major in coining the Silver Morgan Dollars. Among the most prominent was the San Francisco Mint. In 1921, the US Mint issued the Silver Morgan one final time after having not struck the coins since 1904. To mark that centennial, the San Francisco Mint again issues Silver Morgan Dollars, this time as commemorative silver bullion coins. Today, 2021-S Silver Morgan Dollar Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

When the United States Mint began coining silver dollars for the first time after a five-year hiatus in 1878, three mints were involved in coining the newly designed Silver Morgan Dollar. The Philadelphia Mint struck the coins without a mint mark. The Carson City Mint issued the coins with “CC” mint marks and used locally-sourced silver in its production line. The San Francisco Mint also issued the coins with its “S” mint mark present. From 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921, only the Philadelphia Mint and San Francisco Mint struck coins each year.
