Information on Peace Silver Dollars
Many people favor collecting as a hobby. There are a lot of objects that some people collect from the mundane to the exotic or expensive. Coin collectors like to acquire unique and beautiful coins for their collections. One series that draws particular interest is the Peace Silver Dollar for its iconic design and the approachability of the series.
These coins were struck in a composition of 90% silver and 10% copper. This provides intrinsic value for any coin from the series. The Peace Dollars were created following the urging of Farran Zerbe, who was an avid collector who desired a way to commemorate the peace following the conclusion of the Great War.
The designer of the coin would be Anthony de Francisci and the coin design depicts Lady Liberty on the front and a perched bald eagle on the back. The rendition of Liberty is said to have been based on the designer's wife. The reverse of the coin is important since it was the first time the word "Peace" appeared on a circulating U.S. coin.
The most valuable coins are those that were minted from 1921 to 1928. The ones with the most value during this time frame are the dollars minted in 1921 through 1928. A circulated coin in 1921 could fetch $100 and an uncirculated coin of the same year can be worth up to $350. A 1928 Peace Dollar that was circulated, can go for $300 and $500 can be offered for an uncirculated coin minted in 1928.
There are several conditional rarities for the series. This refers to coins that may be readily available in lower circulated grades, but extremely difficult to fine in high mint state grades. Some issues that fall into this category are the 1924-S, 1925-S, and 1928-S coins.
