Peace Dollars for Sale
The Peace Dollar was minted from 1921 thru 1928, and also in 1934 and 1935. Designed by Anthony de Francisci, the coin was the result of a competition to find designs emblematic of peace, following the end of World War I. The obverse of the Peace Dollar features a depiction of Lady Liberty, modelled by de Francisci’s wife, Teresa. Lady Liberty’s hair is upswept into a knotted bun at the back of her head while tendrils of loose hair seemingly flow in a gentle breeze. The reverse of the coins depicts a bald eagle perched on a rock with upward rays of sunlight in the background. The coin is inscribed with “United States of America” and “E Pluribus Unum” on the top of the coin, “One Dollar” in the lower half of the coin split by the eagle’s body and the word “PEACE” engraved onto the rock. It was the last United States dollar coin to be struck for circulation in silver and complemented Americans' hope for peace after the end of World War I. Order one today!
