The history of the Peace Dollar

Peace Dollars came about after World War I because many coin collectors, also known as numismatists, were keen on having a new Silver Dollar design that reflected the newly acquired peace. A contest to design the Silver Dollar was opened to sculptors as a way to save the U.S. Mint from having to spend any money on redesigning the new Silver coin. Like previous Silver coin designs, the requirements for the contest included depicting Lady Liberty on the obverse, and an eagle on the reverse. Anthony de Francisci’s design for the Silver coins was chosen, and the first Peace Dollar was struck on December 28, 1921.

Why invest in Peace Dollars?

Buying Peace Dollars as an investment is considered a smart move by many investors. Silver has been considered a valuable asset for thousands of years, and historically Silver has been shown to remain stable as traditional investments like stocks and bonds falter. APMEX has a wide selection of Peace Silver Dollars for sale. Many add these Silver coins to their investment portfolios because they are recognizable U.S. Mint Silver bullion that can easily be liquidated when needed. Silver Peace Dollars also have numismatic and collector value which many investors find appealing.

Protests surrounded the Peace Dollar design resulting in last minute changes.

The design of Peace Dollars created quite a stir among World War I veterans who had obtained a copy of the winning design prior to the Peace Dollar being minted. While the veterans were satisfied with Lady Liberty depicted on the Silver coin’s obverse, it was the eagle on the reverse that caused them, and many other outraged U.S. citizens, to telegram President Harding asking for the artwork to be removed. What was so offensive about the initial Peace Dollar design? The reverse of the Peace Dollar showed an eagle holding an olive branch while perched on a broken sword, and many viewed the broken sword as a symbol of defeat, and certainly not of peace. Current U.S. Mint Chief Engraver George T. Morgan was swift to modify the design with the input of its initial designer, Anthony de Francisci, and it is this modified design that graces Peace Dollars.

Color me disappointed

By  Tom in Boston

2.0

I ordered 10 Peace silver dollars in vg to vf condition. On the plus side, there was a nice mix of years. However, each and every one was discolored, and some of them were kind of beat up. I'm not an expert on coin grading, but I have ordered the same coin from other vendors and gotten more presentable examples at a similar price. I will not be ordering this grade of coin from APMEX again.

Pros

  • Attractive Design

  • Poor Condition

You can't understate or overstate these Coins. Cheap enough to stack like bullion and good to hoard as a numismatic. VG-XF grading appears to be XF for the coin I received. Will buy more of this Great American Standard,

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand

Top customer service and products

This order is the first time I received a coin that was less than the described condition. APMEX has a very simple return process with no questions asked and postpaid, too. Only 1 out of 10 silver dollars was unsatisfactory and it was promptly replaced with one at the high end of the condition range of the advertised coins. I've been satisfied with my past purchases of coins from APMEX and now that I've experienced their customer oriented service when problems arrive I'll increase my purchases without any concern over any future problems that might arrive. This has been a very professional company in my dealings with them.

I was looking for a few things to add in to my larger order, and I thought I'd get something a little different. This is the type of coin that was used in the Dark Knight (2008), by Harvey Dent (AKA, Two-Face). His was a 1922 mint, and while ordering, I specifically asked for one minted in 1922. Upon the package arriving, I was pleased to see that mine was a 1922 mint. Doesn't affect the value.. but it makes a good conversation piece. Thanks to APMEX.

Not a VG/XF condition

By  Black Blur

The coin is all black/dark grey on both sides, and can barely read the reverse (one dollar, peace). I think the coin could be classified as average circulated, or good. Now, I understand that grading is subjective and since this is not slabbed, we go by the word of Apmex. But on this particular piece I got, I think it wouldn't go beyond good condition. I don't think its even worth sending back, because if I spend more on shipping, I would probably end up paying 1.5 to 2 times the cost of the coin, and there is always the possibility of them sending me another coin in the same condition.

Exactly as described

By  D.W.

These dollars were ordered with the expectation that they would average "Fine" or better. This is because the silver content goes down with lower grades. And sure enough, the dollars I received were in "Fine" as an average. The dates were common, but this is to be expected and does not affect the value when the dollar becomes toilet paper. Though the premiums were a bit higher than with other denominations, that's what you get if you want these fine coins. Dollars were not as common as quarters and dimes, hence the higher premiums. I felt, though, that the premiums were quite fair. This level is a compromise between culls (which average only "good" and contain fair to about good coins, losing some of their silver content) and the higher grades of AU and BU which have far higher premiums. The spread will disappear when the dollar becomes worthless, and the value will be roughly the amount of silver the coins contain. Now, if you are simply looking to stack ounces (and you should, if you haven't already), I recommend other products. Silver rounds and impaired proof quarters are a good place to start, as the premiums are much lower with these items. However, if you already have quite a few of those, I recommend stacking a few silver dollars. Notably, the Peace dollars are lower premium than similar Morgans.

I purchased a few of these to see what I would get. The coins came exactly as described, in average circulated condition. None of the coins had been cleaned. Two coins had a nice aged patina and were Fine to VF, and one coin still retained some luster and detail; easily an XF coin. For those interested in a bit of history for a fair price, this is a good buy. Thanks APMEX

Collect Peace Dollars designed by Italian immigrant and sculptor Anthony de Francisci.

Anthony de Francisci, most known for designing the Peace Dollar, realized the classic American dream by coming to the land of opportunity as an 8 year old with his Italian parents in 1895, and achieving success as a sculptor and coin designer through hard work and determination. Before creating his winning Silver Dollar design, de Francisci attended Cooper Union in Manhattan, and studied under renowned coin designer, James Earle Fraser. He also assisted Silver coin designers, Hermon MacNeil and Adolph A. Weinman, and it is most likely that his eventual hiring at the U.S. Mint was in part due to his contacts with his mentors. Besides the Peace Dollar, de Francisci also designed the Maine Centennial Commemorative Half Dollar.
