2021 1 Oz Silver British Virgin Islands 100 YEARS OF MORGAN N PEACE Dollar Coin. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the last Morgan Dollar and first Peace Dollar. The United States Mint completed the last overhaul of its 19th century coin designs. The US penny, Gold Eagle denominations, the quarter, the dime, and the half dollar had all been brilliantly redesigned by 1921.As silver dollar coining resumed in the country, the US Mint first used the historic Silver Morgan Dollar design that had last been struck in 1904. By December Of 1921, a redesign had been completed and the Silver Peace Dollar entered production on the 28th of the month. 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of this transitional period for the silver dollar. Back in 1878, the US Mint ended a five-year hiatus in the coining of silver dollars in the nation with the introduction of a new design. Named in honor of the Assistant Engraver who developed the images, George T. Morgan, the Silver Morgan Dollars were issued by the US Mint from 1878 to 1904. In 1921, the US Mint had to create a brand-new master die to strike Silver Morgan Dollars. Morgan was still with the mint and serving as Chief Engraver at this time and was able to develop the new die.
By December, a new design for both sides of the silver dollar debuted. Created by Anthony de Francisi, the Peace Dollar had softer imagery with a peaceful image of Liberty and the design of an eagle at rest on the reverse. Limited Mintage Of 5, 000 Pieces Worldwide. Weight: 1 Oz - 31.1g.
