Warren G. Harding Background:
He is best known for the 1921 economic recession, a series of scandals like the Teapot Dome and others that only came to light after his passing.
In coinage, 1921 saw the resumption of the Morgan dollar and at the end of the year the debut of Peace dollars. Due to the economic situation production of most other circulating coins was kept to a minimum.
Notable quote: “My God, this is a hell of a job. I have no trouble with my enemies…. but my damn friends, they are the ones that kept me walking the floor nights.
