Why does this limited mintage 2021 Silver Morgan and Peace Dollar 6-coin Brilliant Uncirculated set deserve a place in your collection?
The U.S. Mint has issued 2021-dated versions of two of the most symbolic silver dollar coins in U.S. coinage history in honor of the 100th Anniversary of their momentous transition. In 1921, the Morgan Dollar, which represented an era of growth and prosperity of the nation, was replaced by the Peace Dollar, which was issued to welcome the return to a time of peace following the destruction of the First World War. The Morgan Dollar was released annually from 1878-1904, then for a final year in 1921. The Peace Dollar was issued yearly from 1921-1928, then again in 1934 and 1935.
Exquisite Silver Dollar Designs
Morgan Dollar: Designed by George T. Morgan, the artist who would become the Mint's seventh Chief engraver in 1917, the Morgan Dollar obverse features an image of Lady Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap adorned with agricultural elements, while the reverse is ornamented with an eagle grasping arrows and an olive branch. The 2021 dated coins are designed to emulate the original releases of the Morgan Dollar series, including their respective Mint marks. The coin struck at the San Francisco Mint includes an "S" and the Denver minted coin includes a "D." The remaining three silver dollars were all struck at the Philadelphia Mint, one with no Mint mark, as is traditional for the Philadelphia Mint, and two coins which feature the privy marks of "CC" and "O" to simulate the products of the Mints of Carson City and New Orleans, which are no longer operational.
Peace Dollar: The Peace Dollar features the work of award-winning Italian-American sculptor Anthony de Francisci, depicting Lady Liberty in a radiate crown on the obverse and an eagle standing on a mountaintop inscribed with the word "PEACE" on the reverse.
