The 90% Silver Peace Dollar and the Pittman Act of 1918
The United States Peace Dollar was spurred into action by legislation introduced by Senator Key Pittman from the state of Nevada. This federal law mandated that the United States Mint begin coining millions of new Silver Dollars, which they fulfilled. The law also mandated a set rate for the purchase of raw bullion materials and was viewed as a subsidy to the mining companies due to the set rate from the Federal Government. The Pittman Act was introduced to preserve the economics of the time during World War I, and to retain the purchasing power of the United States Gold stockpile.
