Why purchase this BU Peace 1921 Silver Dollar?
World War I presented the world with its greatest crisis in human history. It claimed 15-19 million lives, and more than double that number were wounded. When it ended, numismatists sought to commemorate its finish in the country's currency, and the Peace Dollar was born. This piece was part of the first issue, making it an ideal find not just for collectors but also for anyone who is interested in world history. The coin was struck in Philadelphia on a .7734 troy oz. planchet of .900 fine silver.
Powerful Liberty Design by Anthony de Francisci
Anthony de Francisci designed both faces of this coin. He used his wife, Teresa, as his model for Liberty, whom he renders in left-side profile. She wears a radiate crown that is similar to the one worn by the Statue of Liberty. Inscriptions on this face include "LIBERTY," "1921," and "IN GOD WE TRVST."
An eagle is perched on a crag on the reverse. The eagle holds an olive branch, a symbol of peace. The word "PEACE" is inscribed on the rock, while the sun's rays make for a stunning backdrop.
Exceptionally Well Preserved BU
Nearly a century after it was struck this coin remains in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. That means that it retains its original mint luster and has never been circulated.
