1921 Peace Dollar


The 1921 Peace Dollar - USA

Silver Peace Dollar, dated 1921. No mint mark indicates the Philadelphia facility of the US Mint. Only the Philadelphia Mint produced coins in 1921 and just over one million were made.

The 1921 coin was minted as high relief in 1921 and 1922, but this proved difficult in production so the coin was produced as normal relief in subsequent years.

The Obverse shows the head and neck of Liberty. Designed by Anthony de Francisci, you can see his monogram under the neck.

The edge is reeded (milled).

The Reverse, also by Anthony de Francisci, shows a bald eagle holding an olive branch. The word PEACE appears below.

The 1921 Peace Dollar is a key date and can cost several hundred dollars, but watch out for fakes. Always buy from a reputable seller.


Mintage: 1,006,473 (may include coins in sets)

General Description: Peace Dollars
The Peace Dollar is a coin of the United States of America minted between 1921 and 1935 (actually 1921-1928, then 1934-1935). The designer was Anthony de Francisci who won a competition to find the design. The Obverse shows Liberty and the Reverse is a bald eagle holding an olive branch.

The 'Peace' was to commemorate the peace after World War I. To recognise the 100th anniversary of the Peace Dollar, the coin will be issued in 2021 as a commemorative.
