No Morgan or Peace Dollars for 2022

The United States Mint announced that they will not produce any 2022 Morgan or Peace Silver Dollars, citing a lack of silver blanks as the reason, and adding that the pause will give them time to study how to use their limited supply of silver to "ensure the best customer experience we can."

"We’ll be required to make business decisions like this until the supply chain for silver blanks recovers from the disruptions caused by COVID-19," said Mint Deputy Director Ventris C. Gibson.

The U.S. Mint had originally scheduled proof editions of 2022 Morgan and Peace dollars for release this fall.

Production of the dollars will return in 2023, according to Gibson.

"I want to ensure that our customers know," she said, "that the modern renditions of the historic Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars will continue next year. Our goal is straightforward: to give our loyal customers the products they want and the service they deserve."

Modern renditions of the historic coins launched last year, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the two dollars’ designs. They enjoyed huge success that translated into Mint plans to offer them annually in varying finishes and from multiple production facilities.

How can Deputy Director Gibson make a promise again that she already broke this year? Does she think that not delivering this year in some bizarre way enhances her credibility?

Major D,
The size of the Morgan & Peace Silver Dollars is a bit squirrelly.
Morgan/Peace Silver Dollar: diameter = 1.500 inch (38.10 mm)
silver weight = 0.858 troy ounce
American Eagle Silver Dollar: diameter = 1.598 inch (40.60 mm)
silver weight = 1.000 troy ounce (31.103 grams)

Major D

Rich, I was responding to SENZA’s comment about making silver quarters instead of silver dollars. A silver quarter (99.9% silver) is 24.3 mm in diameter; 0.0138 troy ounce.

Rich

Thanks for the clarification Major D. BTW, don’t the silver quarters (99.9% silver) have a silver weight = 0.199 troy ounce (6.343 grams).

Rich,

I honestly do not understand the ‘excitement’ over the women’s quarters. I’m not collecting them and it looks like I’ll only be getting my ASE’s that I’m enrolled for, assuming the Mint has enough silver planchettes to mint them. Oh, I’ll try to get the 1/10th oz AGE today as well. I see they raised the price of the 4 Coin Set of AGE’s by $282 over last years set.

Rich

Larry, Indubitably. Regarding the 1/10th oz AGE Proof, they are still available, and priced at $330 they are $15 more than last years 1/10th oz AGE Type 2 Proof, which was initially offered for $315. Yeah, the price of the 4-coin set at $5,332 was raised by $272 over last year’s Type 2 set, which went for $3,055. Not that I’m trying to justify the Mint’s pricing, but last July 25th, 2021 (in the middle of the week used to determine the Mint’s pricing for the July 29th release of the 4-coin set), the spot gold price was $1,800, while… Read more »

Maybe it was the Mint’s way of saying no more Morgans and Peace dollars but we’ll tempt collectors and dealers into believing in more of these coins for 2022 and then say we can’t do it but next year. I smell a bait and switch here.

So 101 year anniversary for Morgan and Peace proof coins 😮 🙁

Kaiser Wilhelm

Chris,

As I mentioned in my comment/response to Rooster above, I find it hard to swallow the notion that the mint can’t find the planchets for the relatively few Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars but keeps cranking out millions of bullion coins all the while.

OIP (1).jpg
Chris Terp

Bullion and proof planchets are different Kaiser. However, wonder if there’s a few of the Purple Heart and Negro League Baseball proof planchets available to snipe some from for the Morgan and Peace dollars?

Rich

Chris, your comment is most intriguing. I thought the silver planchets used to produce the bullion, proof and uncirculated American Silver Eagles were all the same, with diameter = 40.6 mm, thickness = 2.98 mm, silver weight = 1.000 troy ounce and composition = 99.9% silver. Sunshine Minting is the primary supplier of 1-ounce silver planchets to the US Mint for the production of American Eagle silver bullion coins. Regarding the post-2018 Commemorative Silver Dollars and the 2021 Morgan/Peace Silver Dollars, the silver planchets used to produce the proof and uncirculated coin versions are also all the same; and the Mint… Read more »

Rich, I was referring to planchet finish. Does the Mint do the polishing for proofs or the vendor?

Still, “something is rotten in Denmark” with no silver planchets for the Morgan & Peace Dollars.

Some of us know this Plandemic came from Faucy experimenting with Canada’s SARS and now we have an admission from Moderna that they released it from his lab.

Allan

They will find a way to get the most out of us with what little silver they have. In my opinion it’s not about producing coins for collecting anymore but to make coins for profit. It’s a different way of thinking, what best can we do for the collector versus what best can we do to raise our bottom line and that of our business partners.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Allan,

I could almost accept that considering I find nothing wrong with the profit motive. What bothers me is that even though the Mint makes a much smaller profit off the bullion coins it sells to its dealers than it does from the collector coins it sells to us, it chose to put aside some of our products while it keeps its “low rent” bullion lines humming along.

I could be wrong, but I think Allan was talking about the Mint making a profit.

I thought the 2021s were a great way to commemorate 100 years since these were last minted. I think continuing to mint them is just a money grab. I do not mind at all that none will be minted in 2022, and would prefer they are not minted again until 2121. Unless life expectancy goes up dramatically and soon, I will not be seeing any of those.

By the way, bullion, being single struck as it is, does not get anywhere close to collector quality coinage like the double struck burnished uncirculated.

The Mint does produce 3 different lines of gold coins. I only wanted the proof Morgan and Peace dollars as a novelty. It was a hope but now it’s faded. We’ll see what they actually do next year, or the year after.

Considering the centennial year has come and gone for them, this year’s Morgan and the Peace Dollar proofs would in fact have been a novelty.

I can understand how the Royal Mint can produce 10oz and Kilo queens beast silver coins but no silver in the USA to make Morgan’s and peace dollars!

The only explanation I can come up with is that the Royal Mint produces so many less of each type of coin compared to the U.S. Mint that it has a lot more silver to play with.
