The Morgan silver dollar, so called because it was designed by U.S. Mint engraver George T. Morgan, was minted from 1878 through 1904 and then again briefly in 1921 until it was replaced by the Peace dollar. There is an M for Morgan at the base of the neck next to the last tress of hair. There is also an M on the reverse of the coin in the left-hand loop of the ribbon. George T. Morgan was born in the U.K. and learned his craft at the Royal Mint in London. Morgan dollars are 90% silver and 10% copper.
Production of silver dollars was suspended in 1904 due to low demand and depleted bullion reserves. In 1918 over 270 million silver dollars were melted and in 1921 the production of silver dollars resumed. The Morgan design was used until the Peace dollar design was adopted later that year.
