Peace Dollars

Peace Silver dollars were commemorative coins of Peace released after the First World War. The US mint announced a design competition for the new Peace Silver dollar and Anthony de Francisci, a young medal designer won it.

De Francisci used his wife, Teresa de Francisci as the model for his obverse Liberty design. The design had the liberty with hair blowing in the wind and a Statue of Liberty style crown on the head. For the reverse, he submitted two designs, one of which was approved. It had a perched bald eagle holding an olive branch.

The US Mint released Peace Silver dollars from 1921 to 1935. The 1921 and a portion of 1922 Peace Silver dollars were released in the high relief versions as in the original design of De Francisci. The high relief coins in Mint-state conditions above MS-65 command around $2500. The only proof coins released in 1921 and 1922 sell anywhere above $50,000. No more high relief coins were released after 1922.

The 1928 Philadelphia coins in uncirculated conditions are rare and worth more than $20,000. The 1934D Peace Silver dollar has a double-die variation that may be interesting to some collectors. The other year that is considered quite valuable is 1934S, selling above $25,000 in Mint-state conditions MS-65 and above. The other error coin variety sort after is the 1935S which has either 3 or 4 rays below the word 'ONE' in the reverse.

@CSN we have a collection of Peace Silver dollars ranging from 1921 to 1935 from different mints.
