Peace Silver Dollars are a type of silver coin that were produced by the United States Mint from 1921 to 1935. These coins were introduced following the end of World War I and were meant to symbolize peace and unity.
The Peace Silver Dollar was designed by Italian American sculptor Anthony de Francisci, who won a competition to design the new coin. The obverse of the coin features the profile of Lady Liberty with the word "Liberty" inscribed above her. The reverse of the coin features a perched eagle with an olive branch in its talons, with the word "Peace" inscribed below.
The Peace Silver Dollar was struck using 90% silver and 10% copper, with a total weight of 26.73 grams. The coin has a diameter of 38.1 millimeters and a thickness of 2.4 millimeters.
Peace Silver Dollars are highly collectible among coin collectors and numismatists due to their historical significance and beautiful design. They are considered a key date in American coinage history and are often sought after by collectors. The value of these coins can vary based on factors such as rarity, condition, and demand.
Today, Peace Silver Dollars are no longer produced by the United States Mint, making them a true piece of American history and a valuable addition to any coin collection.
