  1. This was a wonderful series. Shame that the mint made these along with the peace dollars last year, but they got bought quickly, then resold for almost 3 times there value.😊👍😊😊👍👍

  2. Thank you Christian for clarifying something about the composition of the 1921 Morgan. That is, I was under the mistaken impression that these coins did not contain 90% silver. And I’m pleased to know that they do.

    I’ve got a stupid question concerning the Mint Mark. I don’t recall observing the Mint Marks on my 1921 s. How do you know if you have a Denver?

    Are there others without Mint Marks? If so, Does that mean the Morgan is a Philadelphia?

  3. love the morgan dollars … I have a few of these in my collection … thanks for the helpful video

  4. Morgan was the designer’s name (George T. Morgan). The woman on the obverse is a representation of the goddess Columbia/Lady Liberty, and based on the likeness of a school teacher named Anna Willess Williams, who was fired from her job for the crime of modelling for the designer.
