Peace Silver Dollars 1921 - 1935

Peace Silver Dollars
The Peace Dollar, minted to commemorate the end of World War I, was the last dollar coin minted for circulation with a silver content of 90%. For this reason many coin collectors cherish the Peace Dollar as the last genuine American Silver Dollar.

Creation of the Peace Dollar
To honor world peace, the United States created the first Peace Dollar in late December of 1921. This Silver Peace dollar was produced intermittently from 1921 to 1928. Then production began again in 1934 and 1935 at three of the United States Mint facilities located in Denver, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. The mintmarks on the Peace coin can be found on the reverse side of the coin located below the word ONE.

Peace Dollar Design
In late 1921 the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts had a competition to design a new silver dollar. Anthony (Antonio) de Francisci Francisci won the competition, which greatly boosted his reputation. His design featured Lady Liberty on the obverse, while the reverse shows a proud image of an American Eagle resting on a mountian top watching the setting sun.

In God We Trvst?
Was there a mistake made? Actually the Peace Dollar's inscription of the motto "In God We Trust" uses the Latin version in which the letter V is substituted for U. This was the grand design of De Francisci, and is just one of many details that set Peace Dollars apart from other coins that the United States Mint has produced.
