Gainesville Coins offers raw Random Date Peace Dollars in Extra Fine condition for collectors and those who like a little history with their bullion. Designed by Anthony De Francisci to commemorate a new era of peace after World War I, the "War to End All Wars", the Peace Dollar was first struck in a high relief version in late 1921. These proved impractical for stacking, and the design was changed to a low profile version in 1922. Containing a silver weight of .77 troy ounces, these 90% silver coins were the last circulating U.S. "silver dollars" actually made of silver when production ended in 1935.
These "raw" silver dollars have not been professionally graded, but only sorted "by eye" as being in generally XF condition. This listing is for only ONE Peace Dollar. The stock photo shows an assortment of Peace Dollars to give you an idea of the average condition.
The "art deco" style of the silver Peace Dollar has made it a continuing favorite among collectors. The obverse features Lady Liberty wearing a tiara of sunbeams, and strands of hair escaping from her bun and blowing freely in the wind. The motto LIBERTY along the top portion of the border is partially obscured by her radiant tiara. The reverse shows an American Bald Eagle at rest, an olive branch in his talons. He looks east, towards the brilliant light of a new age of peace dawning. Under the rock where he perches is the word PEACE.
Stock photo for reference only. Order will consist of ONE random date Peace Dollar in approximately XF condition.
