Authorized under Public Law 116-286, the 1921 Silver Dollar Coin Anniversary Act, the coins are being issued in recognition of the 100th anniversary in 2021 of the production transition from Morgan dollars to Peace dollars.

Mint Marks and Privy Marks

Products will include five 2021 Morgan Silver Dollars and one 2021 Peace Silver Dollar. 2021 Peace dollars will only be minted in Philadelphia and they will not contain a mint mark.

U.S. Mint facilities in Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco will produce the 2021 Morgan dollars. Those from Denver and San Francisco will carry mint marks of ‘D’ and ‘S’. Morgan dollars from Philadelphia will not have a mint mark, paying homage to the original issues.

The Philadelphia Mint will also strike Morgan dollars with privy marks of ‘CC’ and ‘O" for the former Carson City and New Orleans Mints where some of the original Morgans were minted.

Sell-out as soon as ordering starts in 3 … 2 … 1 …

Kaiser Wilhelm

Two words, Stuart. Bingo and Amen.

Kaiser Wilhelm

The 25 Coin Per Household “Limit” is nothing less than a very early Christmas present from the U.S. Mint to the likes of the PFS Buying Club since it will ensure, for example, that its many thousands of members will be able to scoop up the vast bulk of the Morgan and Peace Dollar releases all that much easier and above all faster. Combine that meticulously planned and orchestrated exercise in coin siphoning with the similarly damaging added result of the Mint’s Authorized Early Release Program of whole pallet-loads of those Centennial Dollars to the big dealers such as Mike… Read more »

I would like all six but then I thought but the same out of money I can probably buy a regional Carson City Morgan. And I rather have that just my own opinion

Kaiser Wilhelm

Not a bad idea, David. Generally speaking, an original tops a replica any day.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Just to be perfectly clear, the only real culprit here is the Mint. The other players are but a variety of profiteers jumping on an already systemically corrupt bandwagon.

KW, I agree with you completely. There must be some intense lobbying going on…with individuals left behind.

Kaiser Wilhelm

The only thing new about this, Frank, is our awareness of it. Reviewing the history of the U.S. Mint one swiftly learns that various businesses and assorted politicians have been influencing the policies of that institution for well over a century.

Delivery of these coins after the order date is 4-5 months the Mint says. Crazy!

2 per day, it is going to be hard getting just one with a low mintage.

$85? dang… though i’ll try to pick up one or two. not 25.

though I am not interested in the ‘privy’ mark for CC or O. that’s just not the same thing as a mint mark so let’s not even pretend it is.

Mike

Privy marks aren’t the same as mint marks. Mint marks indicate the mint where the coin was minted. The CC and O privy marked coins aren’t minted in Carson City or New Orleans since there are no mint operations in those cities.

Kaiser Wilhelm

I agree, Mike; those two privy marks are meaningless. Even worse, the alleged “O” for New Orleans looks like a solid dot in a circle; that’s a very poor rendering.

Kaiser Wilhelm

My bad. I got this one backwards; the “O” for New Orleans privy mark is the circle around the dot, not vice versa as I had stated.

Kaiser Wilhelm

May we speculate as to the reason for such a “generous” household order limit?
Hint: Lucrative resale market (for the big guys).

The privy mark belongs in the privy. Gotta be the real thing or not at all.

Is the mint allowing the 18 dealers early access to their 10%? Anyone in the world thats interested in these coins has followed these reports. Why wouldnt Mr Ryder put a 1 per household limit on for the first 24 hours? Hes not worried about not selling them out, hes making them to order if they wont ship until October. Does he really believe he wont sell 175,000 Morgans. If I read that explanation of these special buyers allowing for more of the mint products to be availale for collectors on sale day, thats absurd and the people at the… Read more »

The average Joe will NEVER be able to purchase these. 2 different coins on the same day. Be real. The 2021 Proof Silver Eagle sold out in 3 minutes. What a joke

Kaiser Wilhelm

It would seem, KTD, that Average Joes are no longer the Mint’s preferred clientele.

Let’s just do some arithmetic here and see if we can get down to brass tacks. The 10% allotment for the authorized early buyers will take care of skimming 17,500 of each Morgan and 20,000 of the Peace Dollars right off the top, and with all of those mandated to be picked up by the buyers the Mint will have effectively completed its work with those. That then will leave 787,500 Morgan and 180,000 Peace Dollars for a combined total of 967,500 to be sold on their three official release days. With allowances of 25 of each of the six… Read more »

How do you order? Is there a link?

Kaiser Wilhelm

The U.S. Mint catalog page for that item indicates the release date. At the stroke of noon, hit your refresh symbol and the order button will appear in red on that page.

Seth Riesling

And then we all collectively click our red high heal shoes together & pray to the Mint Gods that our coin order goes through & we are delivered into the numismatic holy land of milk & honey!! If you do not follow this exact ritual, your refresh button on the Mint’s website will disappear! Lol.

NumisdudeTX

Kaiser Wilhelm

Now that you mention it, Seth, I did neglect to include in my short and simple U.S. Mint guide for Jessica that upon having initiated the ordering process it doesn’t take long to realize that one isn’t in Kansas anymore.

IMHO the mint almost got it right. A period to order and mint enough for such demand. No excuse not to do that since delivery several months out ( of course that would not set well with flippers and “biggies”) but just might restore a little faith with collectors.

Kaiser Wilhelm

I see this process as having been designed solely to assist the Mint with arranging its production schedule. As for the collector, and from the initial Release Day on, all the coins will as per usual experience be sold out within a few minutes past High Noon.

Jim

Compared to US Mint prices of uncirculated silver dollars (2020 walking liberty–$67.00), the price has escalated. The proposed uncirculated Morgan and Peace dollars may be .999 fine but only contain ,858 troy ounces. In effect this equates to an ~ $100 uncirculated coin relative to the 2020 uncirculated walking liberty. Outrageous pricing in my estimation.

Kaiser Wilhelm

I’m going to hazard a guess, Jim, that this unprecedented $85.00 per coin level will be of little concern to us average collectors/buyers since if anyone is able to acquire one at that official rate it will be a minor miracle. More realistically, it will be the now certain to be higher than ever grossly inflated secondary market prices that will impact us.

Just a little more than 80%of the original size not quite thick enough, not quite big enough, ill pass

Kaiser Wilhelm

I rather doubt, Mike, that you’ll be the only one skipping these coins, but it will be very difficult to differentiate between those who do the same on principle and the others who are just plain sick of having to fight with the jammed-up website on the Release Days.

Reproduction “JUNK” NO THANKS !!!!!!!! LOL Refresh Refresh Refresh !!!!

Kaiser Wilhelm

If past experience is any indication, all the “Refreshing” in the web world isn’t going to get one any closer to getting this particular holy grail in one’s grasp.

Linda

What are other morgan silver dollars worth?

Mark D.

It depends on multiple factors, e.g., condition, number minted, scarcity, etc. So, the price could be as little as the melt value of the silver for a “cull,” or, as much as tens of thousands of dollars. Of course, they still have a face value of $1! Check out PCGS, NGC and Grey Sheet web sites for more or less current retail pricing, i.e., what you could expect to pay as a buyer. You could probably find a nice graded/certified/slabbed Morgan for less than $50. Happy collecting!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Excellent advice all around, Mark; you certainly covered all the bases! I would just humbly add that when making such a purchase the source is also of some significance, which is to say that multi-product sites such as ebay and Amazon cannot always be relied on to have comprehensively vetted all of their coin sellers.

Mark D.

Excellent point, Kamerad.

While I did purchase several First Nations hand-crafted beaded pouch Lewis and Clarke coin sets at a fair (negotiated) price from an Amazon 3rd party vendor, that’s the exception.

Way too many price gougers and fakes on Amazon, and not much better on eBay.

Of course, the USM is worst of all…arrogant, greedy AND dishonest.

Too bad the closest shop I trust is nearly 200 miles round trip, but thank goodness I finally relented and paid for a Grey sheet subscription. If it’s slabbed I can price it. Don’t really get grading otherwise.

Kaiser Wilhelm

For a variety of reasons preceding and beyond the pandemic I don’t get out much, so my purchases are essentially restricted to those coming from the Mint. I’ve never bought any numismatic items on eBay or from Amazon and I have yet to have anything slabbed. In short, Mark, I’m just an old and old-fashioned guy who gets by as best he knows how.

Dealers will buy them up first and collectors will be shut out. What collectors can afford 25 items of each.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Joseph, you’ve managed to illuminate the clever reasoning behind and the ultimate purpose of the 25 per coin Household “Limit”. It’s clear that this particular sales structure is designed strictly for the advantage and benefit of the usual cohort of the Mint’s favored big dealers. As such, it is meant to function as a prohibitively high “minimum” sales point rather than as an effectively deterring “maximum” ordering barrier.

Kathy Rawlingd

Personally I’d much rather buy a original Morgan than a reproduction.

Mark D.

Brava! Clearly, not all of us are as uninformed and gullible as the Mint believes us to be. I’m boycotting these, saving up for a 1921 HR Peace dollar graded MS65 (!!!), and waiting for the “fad” to pass — so, a wait of 5 to 10 years, not really THAT much longer than the Mint’s homage items.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Brava and bravo to you two. Consider how enlightened and discerning you and others here like you are compared those less aware souls who, for example, would so very indiscriminately pay $500 for a slabbed Congratulations Set (how is one expected to appreciate the distinction?) 2021-W Type 1 American Silver Eagle.

But it came from a card stock folder,… a CARD STOCK FOLDER I say, the rarest, most valuable card stock ever (which we recycled on eBay because there’s no place for it in the slab). GENUINE CARD STOCK, I say, ABSOLUTELY GENUINE!!!
Mike Mezakrap or Foghorn Leghorn?

Kaiser Wilhelm

Actually, the re-sellers could let the coin go for the original $73 and just tack on another $427 for the folder to make their going rate of $500.

domenic

ALL i want is 1 of each…and ill be a happy camper.

Clockwork Squirrel

85 smackers is a bit much for me to order all 6. Regardless, the privy marks are a non-starter in my book, so I’ll probably settle for the San Francisco Morgan and Philly Peace, then call it a day.

Kaiser Wilhelm

That just so happens to be my plan also for the perfectly tuned “compromise”.

Please visit https://catalog.usmint.gov/product-schedule/ for more information about each product.

Will wonders never cease! I’m in shock.

Mark D.

Standing by with nitro and paddles, just in case. Remember when funeral parlors had ammonia ampules on hand in case anyone fainted?

Kaiser Wilhelm

Can’t say I remember that. However, in Vienna all of the shoe stores had X-ray machines you would put your feet into – and as many times as you wanted to, with no shielding of any kind, at least none that I ever noticed – to see how a particular shoe you were considering buying would fit. Yikes!

A device featured in a Harry Palmer (Michael Caine) flick,… “Billion Dollar Brain” I think.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Michael Caine has long been one of my very favorite actors. Prior to appearing in the above mentioned film he starred in two other Harry Palmer movies, The Ipcress File and Funeral In Berlin. Both of them were admittedly somewhat downbeat but nevertheless excellent films. In fact, it’s my belief that their purposefully dreary cinematic ambience brilliantly echoed the unquestionably grim reality of the times.

I can’t understand why dropping it to 10 per household will reduce the problem. In fact, I reckon a lot more people will be able to find $850 to max their purchasing ability, than $2,125 from the previous limit.

The mint’s website is going to be absolute trash.

Kaiser Wilhelm

You win the gold star (sorry, no coin), Daniel. Just think, the Brooklyn Buyers’ Group alone, the membership of which numbers in the many thousands (and here let’s for the moment just put aside the guaranteed involvement of an assortment of major dealers like Mike “Sold out Limited Edition” Mezack and each of their countless ordering minions), could all by itself effortlessly suck up the entire offered supply of each iteration of every one of those Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars.

this is as bad as it can get. the mafia give you a better shake then this bunch. good lock every one

Kaiser Wilhelm

In my humble opinion, the Mint’s impossibly infuriating sales of its most desirable coin products are less like the methods of the Mafia and more akin to one of those street hustles where you have to keep your eye on which of the constantly moving cups the object in question ends up under but you never have the slightest chance of being right.

Good to see that The Mint changed ordering limits across all options from 25 to 10 coins per household.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Mark, please see Daniel’s, mine and Stanlry’s comments above as to why this 25 to 10 reduction is more a cosmetic alteration by the Mint than one of substance in our favor.
