The Peace Silver Dollar is one of America’s favorite coins. It was the last Silver Dollar minted for circulation, but it has been out of circulation since the last coin was struck nearly 70 years ago in 1935.

The Peace Silver Dollar was first minted in 1921, and it was struck each year until 1928. No coins were struck in 1929, the year of the stock market crash and the start of the Great Depression, and it was not struck again until 1934. The last coin was minted in 1935.

As a result of its large size, solid silver content, stunning beauty, and historical importance, it is always in tremendous demand and is one of the most popular classic American coins.

The coin offered here is one of the finest in existence. It is guaranteed to be in Brilliant Uncirculated MS-64 condition, which is one of the highest grades.

The Peace Silver Dollar was issued as a celebration of world peace after World War I. Sculptor Anthony De Francisci portrayed his wife, Teresa, as Lady Liberty on the coin. The reverse shows an eagle holding only an olive branch of peace instead of the usual olive branch and arrows of war; this symbolized “peace.” The eagle is also sitting on a rock inscribed with the word “PEACE.”

This is the largest silver coin ever made for circulation: it is almost 1-1/2 inches in diameter and it contains over 3/4 ounce of pure silver. The overall silver purity is the standard .900 pure.

Due to the massive amounts of silver in each coin, millions were melted to help pay for World War II; millions more were privately melted in the 1980’s when silver reached $50 an ounce; and millions were destroyed or worn out in circulation between 1921 and 1935.

As a result, just a fraction of all coins remain today – and just a fraction of those coins are in original Brilliant Uncirculated condition like the coin offered here.

To certify that this is one of the highest graded Peace Silver Dollars, it has been independently graded as MS62 by a team of coin experts. Coins are graded on a 70-point scale, and MS60 is the standard Brilliant Uncirculated grade – so this coin is four full grades better than a standard Brilliant Uncirculated coin.

The coin is also encapsulated in a tamper-proof holder to protect its condition for the future.

The date of the coin will range from 1921-1935, and the grading company may vary.
