The Morgan dollar is named for its designer, George T. Morgan. They were minted from 1878 through 1904, then again for one year in 1921. As always, the value of a coin depends on its condition, its rarity, and sometimes its bullion value. The Morgan dollar contains .77344 oz of pure silver, and the value of silver changes from day to day. However, to a collector, the value of the silver content does not affect a coin's value as a collectors item. I looked online to see what 1921-S Morgans are selling for and they range from $50 in Fine condition to $60 in about Uncirculated.
