OverviewThe Peace Dollar commemorated the Treaty of Paris, ending World War I. Unusually, it was created without a new Congressional act, instead being minted under provisions of the Pittman Act, which reissued the Morgan silver dollar in 1921.
DesignMedalist Anthony De Francisci designed the silver Peace Dollar using his wife, Teresa, as model for Lady Liberty. Above her head is “LIBERTY,” and the issue date is below. “IN GOD WE TRUST” appears around her neck, separated between “WE” and “TRUST.” The reverse has an eagle perched on mountain crag, looking off into rays of sunlight. Across the eagle is the dollar denomination. The mint mark is beneath “ONE,” and along the rim is inscribed “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” above “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” Latin for “Out of Many, One.”
MintingAll 1921 silver Peace Dollars were struck in high relief. The design was modified in 1922, and normal relief coins were struck later that year. Peace Dollars were produced until the Great Depression began in 1929. The United States Mint resumed producing the Peace Dollar in 1934, but stopped again in 1935. Peace Dollars were struck one last time in Denver in 1965, but all were destroyed and never circulated.
This is a premium coin, meaning the coin’s price includes a premium above the melt value of the precious metal it contains, which includes Augusta’s margin. This premium is solely determined and controlled by Augusta, based on factors Augusta deems valuable in determining and controlling such premium. Other retailers may not recognize the premium value that Augusta recognizes for this premium coin and may only be willing to pay as little as the melt value for this coin (the value of the precious metal that the coin contains). If you sell this coin to a retailer that does not recognize the premium value assessed by Augusta at the time of sale, then such sale may result in significant losses. Augusta cannot guarantee that it will buyback any item it sells and cannot guarantee another retailer will purchase this premium coin.
