Why order this 2021 Ultra High Relief 2 oz Silver Reverse Proof Smithsonian Peace Dollar Medal?
Although it was only issued from 1921-1928 and 1934-1935, the Peace Dollar is one of the best known coins in American history. Anthony de Francisci submitted one obverse and two reverse designs for the coin, which celebrated the end of World War I. His obverse design was modified, and one of his reverse designs was lost to history... until now. This medal features his original obverse and alternative reverse designs.
Powerful Eagle Design by Anthony de Francisci
Obverse: The medal's obverse bears the familiar left-side portrait of Liberty that appeared on the Peace Dollar. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY" and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRVST." At the bottom is the date that the Peace Dollar was first issued in Roman numerals, "MCMXXI." The date on the dollar was changed to Arabic numerals and Liberty's face was modified on the Peace Dollars that were actually issued by the United States Mint.
Reverse: An aggressive eagle spreads its wings while breaking a sword on the reverse. Rim inscriptions note the name of the country that issued the coin for which the design was created, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and the name of the coin, "PEACE DOLLAR." The motto "E PLURIBVS VNVM" is included on the right, while the Smithsonian's logo and the date of the medal, "MMXXI," appear between the eagle's legs.
