In the how-about-some-GOOD-news-from-Washington department, the 1921 Silver Dollar Coin Anniversary Act has been signed into law. Here's an excerpt from Coin World's coverage. I added the
image from our earlier articles. -Editor
"Legislation was signed into law Jan. 5 by President Trump to authorize production in 2021 by
the U.S. Mint of coins marking the 100th anniversary of the transition of silver dollar production to the Peace dollar from the Morgan dollar.
"H.R. 6192, the 1921 Silver Dollar Coin Anniversary Act, was introduced in the House March 11, 2020, by Rep. Andy Barr, R-Ky. H.R. 6192 was passed by the House Sept. 22, 2020. The Senate passed
the measure Dec. 17 by unanimous consent.
"A mirror bill in the Senate, S. 4326, was introduced July 27, 2020, by Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo.
"The successful legislative initiative was spearheaded by Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee Chairman Thomas J. Uram, and fellow CCAC member Michael F. Moran."

I think this is one of the best coinage ideas in a long time, and congratulations to Tom, Mike, the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists and everyone involved in making this happen. It was a
long journey with multiple fits and starts, and long stretches of wondering if and when anything would ever actually happen. While I'm among those who prefer original, new designs, I think this is a
great way to commemorate anniversaries of two classic coin designs, and promote numismatics in general. -Editor
