History, Information, and Value of 1921 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1921-D Morgan Silver Dollar
In 1921, the Denver Mint facilities were pressed into service to coin 1921-D Morgan silver dollars, the only date of this denomination produced there since its opening in 1906. The D mintmark is tiny on all issues. Some coins were struck from dies with the D so shallowly impressed that the mintmark is barely visible. The 1921-D variety is common in Mint State today but one may have to search for a specimen with good eye appeal. With the new shallow dies used in production, the circulation strike quality of the 1921-D is usually light on the wreath leaves. Luster ranges from dull to frosty. Since these were branch mint coins, there were no proofs minted.
Most Coin Collectors Want UNC Examples: This prolific issue is available in EF and AU but few collectors pay these grades any attention. Anything that isn’t in an MS grade is going to be valued at a small premium over the worth of silver.
Be Selective When Buying a 1921-D Morgan: Always available in grades of MS-60 right on through the gem rankings, though a sharply struck and aesthetically appealing coin will not fall into your hands immediately-the search for the right 1921-D Morgan can be long but the reward will be ample. Shoot for a sharp MS-65 with good eye appeal.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1921.” The reverse text on the Liberty dollar reads “United States of America; In God We Trust; One Dollar; D.” The obverse of the silver one dollar coin has a bust of a female facing the left wearing a cap and small crown, with flowers tucked in her hair and stars surrounding the border. The reverse of the Morgan Dollar has an eagle in the center with its wings spread and a wreath surrounding.
