Why buy this 1 oz Gold 2021 Smithsonian Peace Dollar Ultra High Relief Reverse Proof Medal?
Anthony de Francisci submitted three designs, one obverse and two reverse, for the iconic Peace Dollar. The obverse design was adopted in modified form, while one reverse image was accepted and the other discarded. This officially licensed medal of the Smithsonian now features his original obverse design and the rejected reverse design, meaning that a handful of collectors have the chance to own a unique piece of numismatic history.
Exquisite Eagle Design by Anthony de Francisci
Obverse: Liberty faces left wearing a radiate crown in Anthony de Francisci's obverse design. Her name, "LIBERTY," arches over the image, while the original Peace Dollar's date is inscribed in Roman numerals, "MCMXXI," as de Francesci envisioned rather than in Arabic numerals, a modification made for the issued coin. The portrait splits an inscription of the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRVST."
Reverse: De Francisci's reverse design depicts an aggressive eagle breaking a sword. Rim inscriptions note the name of the coin that struck the coin, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and its name, "PEACE DOLLAR." "E PLVRIBVS VNVM" is inscribed to the right, and the Smithsonian Institution's logo joins the date of the medal, "MMXXI," between the bird's legs.
Perfect PF70 FDI with White Core Holder and De Francisci Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided this coin's grading information on a label that bears an image of Anthony de Francisci. NGC graded the coin Proof 70, which means that it appears flawless under 5x magnification. The grading company also certified this piece First Day of Issue, a designation available only to coins that were submitted to them through an exclusive process. The coin comes set in a white core holder.
