  • Title: Silver Peace Dollar 1921-1935 VG+ Condition

Full Description

The Silver Peace Dollars were designed to celebrate the beginning of a peaceful era after the end of the First World War and struck from 1921-1935. During the World War, bulks of silver coins were melted and sold to Britain. Britain had kept huge amounts of silver in its reserves to back up its currency, Britain soon lost its faith in the metal and stopped purchasing silver. The Pittman Act enforced the U.S. Treasury to strike the melted coins once again to maintain the flow of the coins that have been taken out of circulation. The U.S. Treasury began minting the Morgan Silver Dollars, but the end of the World War demanded a new design to mark its end. The result was the Peace Dollar. Offered here VG+ condition, this common date Silver Peace Dollar is a great investment at a low premium.
