2021 Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars
In 2021, the United States Mint marks centennial anniversaries associated with two of our Nation’s most important and iconic coins—a century since the last year of the Morgan Dollar and the first of the Peace Dollar in 1921. For these numismatic milestones, we are reviving these classics with an ensemble of stunning collector coins. Each 2021 Morgan and Peace Dollar is struck in 99.9% fine silver (originals were 90%), has a beautiful uncirculated finish, and features the same famous original designs.
Together, the Morgan and Peace Dollars are shining symbols from a momentous time in our history, when America was coming into its own on the world stage in the aftermath of World War I.
Join us in celebrating these milestone anniversaries with magnificent new collectibles.

2021 Morgan Silver Dollars
George T. Morgan found his way to the U.S. Mint as an assistant engraver when then-Director Henry Linderman reached out to The Royal Mint seeking artist recommendations. The deputy master suggested Morgan, who would go on to serve as the Mint’s chief engraver from 1917 to 1925.
The Morgan Dollar—which he famously designed—came in the wake of an economic depression and demonetization of silver. The new Morgan Dollar marked the return of silver as legal tender. Its obverse design features Liberty in profile, with a cap, flora, crown, and 13 stars. The reverse design depicts an eagle with outstretched wings clasping arrows and an olive branch. The original Morgan Dollars were minted from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921, with no silver dollars minted from 1905 to 1920.

2021 Peace Silver Dollar
After World War I, a new provision of public law called for the mintage of new silver dollars, and, in December 1921, Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon approved the Peace Dollar to replace the Morgan Dollar and commemorate peace. The first coin was minted in December 1921, with more than a million produced within a month.
The Peace Dollar designs feature the work of noted Italian American artist Anthony de Francisci. The obverse depicts Liberty in profile with a radiant crown on her head. The reverse design depicts an eagle at rest holding an olive branch above the inscription “PEACE.”
