The Peace Silver Dollar was struck by the US Mint from 1921 through 1928 and then again in 1934 and 1935. The coin is called the Peace Dollar because the word 'Peace' appears on the bottom of the reverse. The Peace Silver Dollar was originally supposed to be a commemorative coin coinciding with the end of World War I, but was issued as a circulating coin. Production was halted in 1928 because the mint had satisfied the requirements of the Pittman Act and the demand for the coin was at a low. The Peace Silver Dollar returned briefly in 1934 and 1935 because additional backing was needed for Silver Certificates.
Anthony de Francisci designed the coin featuring a rendition of Lady Liberty on the obverse. The original reverse design featured a bald eagle holding a broken sword to symbolize peace but was altered from a sword to an olive branch. The Peace Silver Dollar initially drew criticism for the Latin spelling of the word 'Trust' and the open mouthed Lady Liberty but has since become a favorite of coin collectors. The Peace Silver Dollar weighs 26.73 grams and is composed of .900 silver and .100 copper. The net weight of the pure silver is .77344 oz. The diameter of the coin is 38.1 mm and it features a reeded edge.
This Peace Silver Dollar Set makes a great gift for the beginning collector through the experienced numismatist!
