  • Title: Silver Peace Dollar 1921-1935 XF Condition

Full Description

After World War I ended and a new era of peace seemed imminent, numismatists clamored for a new U.S. coin to mark the celebration. After it was determined that a new coin could be issued, a contest was held that would allow the U.S. Mint to have a low-cost design. Anthony de Francisci’s design won the contest and was featured on the Silver Peace Dollar when it was minted in 1921-1928 and again in 1934-1935. The coins offered here are selected from any of those years and all in Extremely Fine XF condition with minimal wear affecting the high points of the design.

Obverse

Designer Anthony de Francisci based his portrait of Lady Liberty for the obverse of the Peace Dollar on the features of his wife, Teresa de Francisci. Teresa had had a childhood dream of playing the role of Lady Liberty in a school production. The fact she was passed over for that role made her husband’s portrayal of her as Lady Liberty all the sweeter. In the Peace Dollar design, Lady Liberty wears a radiant crown. Above her is the word ‘Liberty’ and below her is the year. The motto ‘In God We Trust” is split between the right and left sides of Lady Liberty’s neck.

Reverse

The reverse depicts a bald eagle perched on a rock, looking out over the rays of a rising sun showing from below. On the rock is engraved the single word ‘Peace.’ Showing from side to side of the coin is the denomination ‘One Dollar’ while above are ‘United States of America’ and the motto ‘E Pluribus Unum.’
