1922 Peace Dollar


The 1922 Peace Dollar - USA

Silver Peace Dollar, dated 1922. No mint mark indicates the Philadelphia facility of the US Mint.

The Peace Dollar was minted as high relief in 1921 and partly in 1922. The high relief proved difficult in production so the coin was then produced as normal relief in 1922 and in subsequent years.

The 1922 Peace Dollars were minted in Philadelphia (no mint mark), Denver ('D') and San Francisco ('S').

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 1922 Peace Dollar high relief is a very expensive coin.

Remember 1922 ?
The Monarch is King George V. The British Empire is at its peak, covering a quarter of the planet and ruling over one in four people on earth. Prime Minister was David Lloyd George (Coalition) until October, then Bonar Law (Conservative). Lloyd George resigned over the Chanak Crisis (UK/Turkey tensions). A November election sees a Conservative victory, but Labour becomes the second largest party from the Liberals. The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) is formed and introduces a broadcasting licence fee of ten shillings (about £23 today).
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.
