Why add the 1923 Silver Peace Dollar PCGS MS64 to your collection?

This 1923 Silver Peace Dollar is an excellent example of an American Numismatic Classic. This coin achieved a solid Mint State 64 (MS64) grade from Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). It was struck at the world famous Philadelphia Mint. Each example contains .7734 oz. of silver struck on a 90% pure or "coin silver" planchet. Two separate things caused the Peace Dollar to come into being: The Pittman Act and a popular citizen movement (and subsequent design contest) to strike a "Peace Coin" to mark the end of WWI. The Pittman Act was legislation backed by Western mining businesses and congressmen from Western states that required the U.S. Government to buy large amounts of silver from the mining interests. Vast numbers of Morgan Silver Dollars sat unused in U.S. Treasury vaults. These coins were melted and the silver forwarded to England while the newly purchased silver was struck into Peace Dollars.

Contest Winning Design

Anthony De Francisci was the designer of this classic coin. The design was chosen from a nationwide competition. The obverse features Liberty wearing a radiant tiara. The reverse features an eagle standing while holding an olive branch.

MS64

MS64 coins are sought after collector coins. They are quite attractive and feature excellent design details. They have lustrous and original surfaces and typically are well-struck.
