  3. 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar


The 1921 Morgan silver dollar represents the Unites States return to minting silver dollars after a 17 year hiatus. Thanks to a provision in the Pittman act of 1918, commanding a major meltdown of Morgan silver dollars made before 1904 to aid England in their effort to pay for mounting war costs during World War I, silver dollars made their triumphant return in 1921 with over 88 million produced for circulation.

It also represents the only time in the Morgan silver dollar series’ storied history that the mint in Denver produced any of the iconic silver dollars. The shear fact that the 1921 Morgan silver dollar was made in such abundance means that the coin itself is not very valuable from a numismatic standpoint. The 1921 Morgan silver dollar, much like all of it’s counterparts in the Morgan silver dollar series, still has silver in it and that means it is still worth much more than it was in 1921. The silver content of the 1921 Morgan silver dollar is just over three quarters of an ounce of silver and the composition of the 1921 Morgans silver dollar is 90% silver and 10% copper. The weight of the 1921 Morgan silver dollar is 26.7 grams, meaning that 24.03 grams of that is silver.

Circulated coins of the 1921 Morgan silver dollar type regularly trade on the open market for their weight in silver. If a 1921 Morgan silver dollar is in what would be considered by a profession numismatist as a brilliant uncirculated condition, it will likely find itself in a category of coins that trades for a small percentage over the value of silver within the coin. Unfortunately for those who appreciated the coins at the time, the 1921 Morgan silver dollar was the last in the line of Morgan silver dollars.

The same year they made the 1921 Morgan silver dollar, production began on the 1921 Peace silver dollar, which would be the last true silver dollar America would produce for circulation. Fortunately for coin collectors young and old, the 1921 Morgan silver dollar was made in such vast amounts that these coins can be easily collected and added to even the most basic of coin collections.

The Morgan silver dollar played a very important role in our young nation’s history and the 1921 Morgan silver dollar embodies that notion with it’s mostly unaltered design form the very first Morgan silver dollar way back in 1878. If you have a 1921 Morgan silver dollar you would like to sell, or if you are in the market to purchase a 1921 Morgan silver dollar, just call or come in to Nevada Coin & Jewelry and let our highly respected coin professionals help you today.

Been living in Vegas for many years and never had to sell or hock any of my items unfortunately as luck would have it that day did eventually find me and let me tell you is it a tough racket to find a decent place out here to do business with. Pawn shops are a joke and could care less about their customers and treated me like another number. Tried and tried and place after place the numbers where all over the place. Finally decided to go to these guys and I’m glad I did. They tested each piece of my jewelry right in from of me with some kind of xray machine. They explained how they calculated the price and paid me cash on the spot. Avery was very helpful and didn’t mind answering my questions and explaining what they do. I left feeling I got the best price for my items. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their jewelry.

My Aunt recently passed and she lived in the outskirts of Las Vegas. While my sister and I went through her estate we found a number of items that neither of us considered keeping, but our aunt was clear in her will that she wanted us to use her things to make a profit and in turn use that money to help our futures. We shopped around, especially not being from the area, and got a lot of negative experiences just on the phone. People were rude, uninformative, and really just gave us a feeling they wanted to rip us off. It made us think of those dirty pawn shops you “hear about”. Finally I called Nevada Coin and Jewelry and the whole day shifted! We described a few pieces of jewelry and they helped us figure out initially a general value based on the metal. Of course, they did explain the importance of actually coming in and examining the pieces individually. That level of service over the phone got us through the door. When we went to the spot we were greeted with the same level courtesy, but the professionalism when going over each item and it’s value was through the roof! They took the time to explain why each item was worth what amount and even gave us a little bit of history on the styles. At the end of the day, my sister and I walked away with a sizable amount of money to put towards my son’s college fund and my sister’s vet school. Thanks, Nevada Coin and Jewelry!

I recently got divorced so I wanted to get rid of some of the jewelry my ex-husband got me. I found Nevada Coin and jewelry searching the web. When I called the guy that answered the phone was friendly and willing to quote me a price per gram. I went to their store on Flamingo, Avery whom I spoke to on the phone tested my items using some kind of x-ray machine. I could see that some of my jewelry was not the karat I thought (some lower some higher). He paid what he quoted on the phone no bait and switch. It took less than 15 minutes got my cash and got rid of some bad memories. I would recommend this company if you are looking to sell jewelry.

We were really pleased with the help that AJ gave us concering our gold coins and watches. I don’t think we could have received a better deal anywhere. All of the personnel at Nevada Coin & Jewelry were very professional. We will recommend them to our friends.

After visiting a couple of the “traveling gold & silver merchants” who came to Mesquite, I made a call to Nevada Coin & Jewelry in Las Vegas… David was very helpful and professional. Their prices were the best I had seen… I left very satisfied with my trip and the deals we made. I will definitely go there again.

Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive. Building had great security to helped me feel safe in handling my items.

While vacationing in Las Vegas I did what a lot of people do I’m sure or at least that’s what I’m telling my wife ..I blew through the money I brought a little quicker than expected and I ended up having to shop my Rolex around to several dealers to save the trip. So I looked online for places, most offers over the phone were low and that’s if they would even quote me in the first place. I spoke to a guy at Nevada Coin and Jewelry who gave me a fair ball park price and a reasonable explanation as to why his number couldn’t be solid. Went down expecting to get the lower number and in fact Robert their Rolex expert said my Rolex was a better model then I had described. He paid me a higher number than he quoted. Thanks for saving my vacation guys.

They took the time to help me sell my item and find an item. The staff does not rush you or pressure you into buying something. They take you on a little adventure by telling you about the items you are selling and looking at…
