The unique 1921 Morgan silver dollar
Morgan silver dollars are the most popular and widely collected of all U.S. silver coins. Minted from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921, these classic silver dollars served as the backbone of daily commerce, both nationally and internationally, for decades. Today, Morgan silver dollars are avidly sought worldwide for their high silver content, superb minting, and excellent leverage to the silver market.
The 1921 Morgan dollar is perhaps the most unusual issue in the entire series. After 1904, with national silver bullion supplies all but exhausted, the government suspended coinage of silver dollars altogether. In 1918, under the Pittman Act, more than 270 million silver dollars were melted down for bullion. By 1921, with the U.S. economy booming after World War One, the need for silver dollars became acute so the government resumed production for less than a full year with a few minor refinements, until the newly-authorized Peace dollar design was rolled out in late 1921.Despite high mintage numbers, relatively few 1921 Morgan silver dollars survive today in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) mint condition. Most were used heavily as spending money during the Roaring ‘20s. Today, 1921 Morgan dollars in Brilliant Uncirculated condition are one of the smartest ways to invest in bulk silver. They offer true scarcity with greater leverage to the silver price than silver bullion for very little additional cost
Silver Morgan Dollars are a great way to invest money for these two primary reasons. They are a safe, reliable place to keep your funds, and by investing in precious metals you are virtually guaranteed to see a high rate of return. Economists around the World predict that the prices of precious metals will continue to increase because of the World economy, possibly for several years. The sooner you invest, the more time your assets will have to build in value and strength.
The price is £40.00 per Morgan Dollar plus postal charges at cost.
