How can you find out how much a 1921 D mint stamp dollar is worth?


Quick Answer

A 1921 Denver-minted Morgan dollar coin has value to a coin collector because this is the only year that the Denver mint produced Morgan dollars. As of June 2014, Coin Trackers estimates this coin to be worth between $31 and $391, depending on condition.

Morgan dollars, named after their designer George T. Morgan, were produced at five U.S. mints: Philadelphia; Carson City (no mark), Nevada (CC); Denver (D); New Orleans (O); and San Francisco (S) from 1878 to 1904 and again in 1921. The mint mark appears on the reverse underneath the tail feathers of a bald eagle, clutching three arrows and an olive branch, while Lady Liberty appears on the face. The Morgan dollar has performed well historically, increasing in value by about 400 percent from 1970 to 2014. Because it is made of 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper, this coin remains attractive to collectors who want to collect for future value. There are millions of high-quality, never-circulated coins available, because most of the coins were not needed and remained in vaults until the 1960s.
