2021 Morgan Silver Dollar – CC Privy Mark


The 2021 Morgan Silver Dollar - CC Privy Mark

To mark the 100th anniversary of the last year of the Morgan Dollar, the US Mint has reissued the coin as .999 fine silver (0.858 troy ounce) and uses the original design of George T Morgan.

All coins are made in Philadelphia (no mint mark) but the coin does have a 'CC' Privy Mark on the reverse. The 'CC' is embossed when compared to the original Carson City mint marked coins.

The finish is UNC. Diameter 1.5 inches (38.1mm) and weighs 0.858 troy oz. 99.9% silver.

The Obverse shows an image of Liberty, designed by George T Morgan. His initial 'M' is found on the truncation of the neck. The coin is named after the designer who at the time was United States Mint Assistant Engraver.

The edge is reeded (milled).

The Reverse shows an eagle holding arrows and an olive branch, also designed by George T Morgan.

The US Mint has minted the 2021 Morgan Dollar with Privy marks of CC (Carson City), S (San Francisco), D (Denver) and O (New Orleans), plus one with no Privy Mark for Phiadelphia.

General Description: Morgan Dollars

The Morgan Dollar was a USA silver coin minted from 1878 to 1904 and then again in 1921. It had a currency value of one US dollar. In 2021, a .999 Silver Morgan Dollar was released to mark the 100th anniversary of the last Morgan Dollar.

The name Morgan derives from the designer George T. Morgan (1845-1925). Morgan was originally from Birmingham, England, where he worked with William Wyon but moved to America in 1876 to become the assistant engraver at the US Mint. The image of Liberty was modelled by a Philadelphia school teacher named Anna Willess Williams.

Morgan later became Chief Engraver of the U.S.Mint from 1917 until 1925 and he is probably best known for the Morgan Dollar, although he designed many other coins too. You can see a small 'M' on the truncation of the neck.

The Morgan Dollar was brought about due to the Bland–Allison Act of 1878 and during the early days the coin was often referred to as the Bland Dollar (after Richard P. Bland who introduced the Bill), although some called it the buzzard dollar as they disliked the image of the eagle.
