1921 Morgan Silver Dollar VG Silver Coin
George T. Morgan, an assistant engraver at the Philadelphia Mint produced the winning design for the dollar, hence it is referred to by his name. Anna Willess Williams modelled for Morgan as Lady Liberty. He said that her profile was the most perfect he had ever seen.
The Morgan silver dollar was minted from 1878 to 1904, with a one-year return to production in 1921. The Morgan dollars were produced with ninety percent silver and ten percent copper in order to conform with the coinage act of 1837. The 1921 Morgan dollars required George Morgan to create new master dies as the old dies had been destroyed in 1910. The Morgan dollar was produced for only one year before it was replaced by the Peace dollar.
