In commemoration of a unique centennial, the United States Mint resurrected its last two silver dollar coin designs in 2021. The year marked the 100th anniversary of both the final issue of Morgan Silver Dollars in 1921 and the inaugural release of Peace Silver Dollars. Though numismatists were hopeful the coins would become an annual commemorative series, the absence of Morgan Dollars and Peace Dollars in 2022 quickly squashed those hopes. However, much to the delight of collectors and investors, the series made a triumphant return in 2023, with a strong reception in the first few weeks.
Off to a Strong Start
The debut of the 2023 versions of the coins on July 13th put to rest any doubts regarding their popularity. The 2023 Morgan Dollar and 2023 Peace Dollar garnered impressive sales figures, with a combined 527,941 coins sold in just four days following the release. Notably, during the week ending July 16th, both coins secured their positions as the best-selling coins at the US Mint. While the 2023 Morgan Dollar slightly outpaced the Peace Dollar, with 255,904 and 255,877 individual coins sold, respectively, and sales of bulk units also contributed to their success, pushing the individual mintages for each coin above 260,000 units in total.
A Smaller Collection in 2023
Unlike the 2021 releases, which offered a total of six options for collectors, the 2023 series underwent significant trimming. Gone are the multiple mint mark or privy mark versions; instead, collectors now have only a single version of each coin. Both the 2023 Peace Silver Dollar and the 2023 Morgan Silver Dollar are produced by the Philadelphia Mint and bear no mint mark.
Preserving the historical significance of the collective programs, the 2023 Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars feature iconic designs. The obverse of the 2023 Morgan Dollar showcases George T. Morgan’s left-profile bust of Liberty from 1878, while the reverse features his original heraldic eagle design. On the other hand, the 2023 Peace Silver Dollar presents Anthony di Francisci’s depiction of a captivating Lady Liberty on the obverse and an American bald eagle perched serenely on a cliff’s edge on the reverse. This design reflects the nation’s desire for isolationism and peace after World War I.
US Mint Packaging
Each individual 2023 Morgan Silver Dollar and 2023 Peace Silver Dollar comes with US Mint presentation packaging. The coins are encapsulated within a US Mint display box and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
