  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.

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.

The staff are quick at work but not too quick to make you feel pressured into buying items or selling your items. They teach you about the items and tell you if they have use for your items or not. If they don’t have use for your items they call other places to see if they have a use for the items. Great staff!


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.

I am a brazilian and had the chance to deal with Nevada Coin. I was there to sell some gold coins and they paid me the best price I could fetch in Las Vegas. They are professional, courteous and trustworthy. Before visiting their premises I got a tentative appraisal by phone which I found reasonable. In the shop the attendant offered to approach the manager to get me a (gasp) BETTER price. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother talking to their rude and unprofessional competitors. They will treat you like a moron and quote prices accordingly. For Nevada Coin, five Stars all the way.


This place is definitely recommended!!! A.J. and David are amazing…very helpful and nice people at that! I would totally consider going to this place.

What inspired me to go to NV Coin and Jewelry was I was an ad on the TV for the shop. I was not too sure about going to NV Coin and Jewelry to sell my jewelry because I have been to many other pawn shops but haven’t found a good deal for my jewelry. After I went to Nevada Coin and Jewelry it was a big relief for me selling my jewelry for a good price.


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.

Grateful for the Nevada Coin and Jewelry shop, I just adore it. I took some collectable figurines in and they bought them. I came out smelling like a rose. You should’ve been there to see the big smile on my face. I ran all the way home to look for some more. Can’t wait to get back! I can sure use the money!


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!
