The 1921 Morgan dollar D was the very first silver dollar ever to be minted by the Denver mint after it opened on February 1, 1906. The Denver mint had plenty of years to mint silver dollars but there were not any being produced until the 1921 Morgan dollar D. On May 9, 1921 Denver struck it’s very first silver dollar in history. The initial 100 coins were engraved and numbered making these coins extremely rare. Only a hand full of these special engraved coins remain today. Each of the first 100 1921 Morgan dollar D coins read “-TH DOLLAR RELEASED FROM 1ST 100 EVER COINED AT DENVER MINT THOMAS ANNEAR, SUPT.” on the front side of the coin.
Denver came in last of the 3 mints producing Morgan dollars in 1921, with their production numbers at 20,345,000. Just slightly behind the San Fransisco mint for the 1921 Morgan dollar S. 1921 Morgan dollars minted in Denver with the exception of the special engraved edition are still somewhat common to find. Not in circulation of course. You can identify a Morgan dollar minted in 1921 in Denver by the date on the face of the coin and a small “D” on the back.
