A Morgan silver dollar was minted in the United States between 1878 and 1921. It has a Lady Liberty head on the front and an Eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows on the back.
In the United States, just the Peace Dollar. The Morgan silver dollar's last mint year was 1921 which was the Peace Dollar's first year.

The Morgan silver dollar was not produced in the United States after 1921, and the Peace Dollar was only produced until 1935. In fact, I don't believe that there were any coins produced in the world in 1939 with the denomination of One Dollar.
The United States last minted silver dollars in 1935, then reintroduced the large dollar in 1971. There are no dollars for any of the 1940s, '50s, or '60s.
The last "silver" dollar (as versus the current "golden" dollars) produced for circulation in the United States was minted between 1971 and 1978 and had a portrait of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States, on the front. The last "silver" dollar (as versus the current "golden" dollars) produced for circulation in the United States was minted between 1971 and 1978 and had a portrait of Dwight D.

THERE WERE NO SILVER DOLLARS MINTED IN THE UNIITED STATES AT ALL WITH A 1920 DATE! IF SOMEONE IS SELLING YOU SOMETHING LIKE THIS DO NOT BELEIVE IT!
The original dollar coin was made of Silver. The current dollar coins are made of Copper, Zinc, Manganese, and Nickel by the United States mint. The Morgan Silver Dollar is prized by coin collectors.
All Morgan dollars (named for their designer George T. Morgan) have the same reverse image: an eagle with outstretched wings, surrounded by a wreath, the words In God We Trust, United States of America, and One Dollar.
Yes, yes I can. In 1878 the United States Mint first started minting the Morgan Dollar series which continued on until 1921 when it was replaced by the Peace Dollar. Below is a link to a photograph of an 1878 Uncirculated Morgan Dollar.
There were no US Silver Dollars minted in the year of 1793. The first Silver Dollar coin minted was the Flowing Hair Dollar and it first year of mintage was 1794.HoweverThe first United States legal tender silver dollar was minted, not here, but in Mexico City. It was the Eight Reales, the "Pieces of Eight," whose scrolls on its obverse were the origin of the American dollar sign. The Eight Reales was the largest and heaviest silver coin minted for over 200 years, actually bigger and heavier than the Morgan Silver Dollar. These Eight Reales were minted between 1772 and 1826, the beginning of American silver coinage.America's first silver dollar, a type of Spanish milled dollar, was minted at some of the oldest mints in the New World. Mexico, Peru, and Bolivia were among the countries to produce this treasured coin. It was the basic currency of our Founding Fathers, widely circulated during the Colonial and Revolutionary eras and used as legal tender until 1857.The "piece of 8," as the coin is often called, had a value of 8 reales. Merchants would break the coin into eight pieces, each commonly know as a "bit," allowing for purchases of other than whole dollar amounts.The value fluctuates, as there are 'replica' coins out there. I would look for the 'chop marks' that were used by merchants to mark the coins as they changed hands.
The Eisenhower dollar was a one-dollar coin issued by the United States Mint from 1971 to 1978; it was the first coin of that denomination issued by the Mint since the Peace dollar series ended in 1935.
