• The Peace Silver Dollar was the last Silver Dollar minted for circulation.

• It was made only from 1921 to 1935.

• The coin was first issued as a celebration of world peace after World War I.

• Sculptor Anthony De Francisci portrayed his wife, Teresa, as Lady Liberty on the obverse.

• The reverse shows an eagle holding only an olive branch of peace instead of the usual olive branch and arrows of war.

• The eagle is also sitting on a rock inscribed with the word “PEACE.”

• Coins were struck at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints.

• This coin is from the San Francisco Mint, which was renowned for the beauty of the coin strikes.

• Peace Silver Dollars were made in San Francisco for only nine years – 1922-1928 and 1934-1935.

• All coins are over 70 years old.

San Francisco coins are identified by the small “S” mint mark on the reverse, below “ONE.”

• This is the largest silver coin ever made for circulation.

• It is the same size as the Morgan Silver Dollar – almost 1-1/2 inches in diameter.

• Each coin was struck in .900 pure silver and contains over 3/4 ounce of pure silver.

• Millions of Peace Silver Dollars were melted for the silver to help pay for World War II.

• Millions more were privately melted in the 1980’s and later when the price of silver skyrocketed.

• The coin comes in a deluxe display with a Certificate of Authenticity.
