First of all, there are two dollar design types that were minted in 1921. A Morgan type, similar to the dollar that was discontinued in 1904 and a new type called the Peace Dollar that was essentially a World War I commemorative. The easiest way to describe the difference is that the eagle has closed wings on the Peace Dollar and open wings on the Morgan.
The 1921 Morgan is the most common of all U.S. silver dollars and is available in quantity even in uncirculated condition. There were no special coins sold or made or packaged for collectors in 1921 except for some specially engraved presentation pieces made at the Denver Mint with the words DOLLAR RELEASED FROM THE 1ST 100 EVER COINED AT DENVER MINT THOMAS ANNEAR, SUPT.
Only a small number of 1921 proof Peace dollars were minted and those are very rare and valuable. The regular issues are scarce and have a higher premium than the 1921 Morgan but there is no record of these coins being packaged by the Mint for collectors either.
