Why add the 1923 Silver Peace Dollar PCGS MS65 to your collection?

This 1923 Silver Peace Dollar is an excellent example coming in with a high Mint State 65 (MS65) grade from Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). The Peace dollar was struck by the U.S. Mint to commemorate the end of World War I, the "War to end all wars" an the suggestion of San Francisco numismatic dealer Farran Zerbe. Artist Anthony de Francisci was the eventual winner of the design contest. The Peace dollar contains .7734 oz. of silver struck on a 90% "coin silver" planchet. This coin was struck at the Philadelphia branch of the U.S. Mint.

Youthful Liberty Obverse

The obverse features the portrait of a "young and vital" Liberty, reflecting the post-war optimism of the 1920s. She faces left with a crown of rays emanating from behind her head. Due to the limited time the artist had to develop the design, the image is a composite but shares significant features with his wife Teresa De Francisci. The reverse image is an Eagle at rest on a mountain peak. Rays emanate from behind with the word "Peace" centered below the image.

Lustrous MS65 Example

MS65 business strikes of this age are sought after by collectors. They feature brilliant, lustrous original surfaces and no apparent evidence of handling.
