Peace Silver Dollars were struck from 1921 to 1928 and 1934 to 1935, and were the last 90% silver dollars produced in large numbers by the U.S. Mint. Peace Dollars were meant to replace the large number of silver dollars melted and sold to Britain during WWI. There are a total of 24 different date and mint mark combinations of this coin and a total mintage of 190,577,279 Peace Silver Dollars. The Peace Dollar was minted at the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco Mints, and has an fine silver content of 0.77 troy ounces.
The front, or obverse, of the Peace Silver Dollar depicts Lady Liberty. Sculptor Anthony De Francisci won the design competition, basing Lady Liberty’s design on his wife, Teresa. The obverse includes the inscription, “Liberty, In God We Trust,” and the year the coin was produced. Under the neck of Lady Liberty is the monogram for Anthony De Francisci.
The rear, or reverse, of the Peace Silver Dollar depicts a majestic bald eagle holding an olive branch, with the sun’s rays shining in the background. The original design had the eagle perched on a broken sword, but the public was quick to criticize this aspect of the design as implying defeat, and the final design removed the broken sword. The reverse includes the inscriptions, “United States of America, E Pluribus Unum, One Dollar,” and “Peace.”
