When the United States Mint first issued the Silver Morgan Dollars in 1878, the San Francisco Mint was there to provide coining capacity for the mint in its reintroduction of silver dollars. When the US Mint issued its final Silver Morgan Dollars in 1921 after a 17-year hiatus, the San Francisco Mint was there again to issue a massive number of Morgans for the final release. As the US Mint marks that centennial in 1921 with commemorative silver bullion Morgans, the San Francisco Mint is there again.

In the first year of issue for Silver Morgan Dollars in 1878, three mints contributed to the production of the coins. The Philadelphia Mint issued more than 10 million coins. The Carson City Mint produced a relatively scant 2.12 million coins that same year. The San Francisco Mint, which opened in 1854, also produced the coins, striking a total of 9.774 million coins.
Fast forward 43 years to 1921 and the final issue of Morgan Dollars, the San Francisco Mint was there to once again issue the coins. In 1921, San Francisco struck and issued 21.695 million of the silver dollars. This completed San Francisco’s contribution to the series as one of two mints to strike the coins every year from 1878 to 1904 and once again in the one-time 1921 release.
The obverse of 1921-S Silver Morgan Dollars features an effigy of Lady Liberty. This portrait shows her head in left-profile relief with a Phrygian cap on top and her hair held back out of her face by a laurel wreath and a coronet crown.
On the reverse of the 1921-S Silver Morgan Dollar is a depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design shows a front-facing bald eagle with spread wings and the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons.
