The History of the Peace Dollar (1921-1935):

In 1920 the American Numismatic Association proposed a half dollar or dollar coin to commemorate the end of hostilities between the Imperial German Government and the United States. Although the bill died in Congress, the Peace Dollar was struck the very next year under the provisions of the Act of 1890 which states that, under certain circumstances, a coin can be redesigned without Congressional approval. Under the terms of the Pittman Act, Peace Dollars continued to be produced as old silver dollars were melted and sold to Britain and new silver was purchased. The Peace Dollar is the first coin, from any country, to bear the word "Peace". Peace Dollars were struck from 1921 to 1928 at which time the provisions of the Pittman Act were satisfied. No Peace Dollars were minted for the following five years. In 1934 and 1935 Peace Dollar production was resumed under Executive Proclamation. The 1935 Peace Dollar was the last silver dollar issue for general circulation by the United States.

The Peace Dollar was designed by Anthony De Francisci. His monogram is located in the field of the coin under the neck of Liberty. The obverse depicts Liberty for which De Francisci's then 23 year old wife modelled. The "radiate" crown recalls both the head dress on ancient Roman coins as well as that of the Statue of Liberty. The reverse shows an eagle in a less militant pose than the its predecessor, the Morgan Dollar.

It should be noted that the spelling of the word "TRVST" is both intentional and correct. The U and V have been interchangeable from early Latin writing until the 16th century. In modern times, the V is still often used in place of a U in upper case writing on official documents, monuments, and most government buildings.

The composition of the Peace Dollar was 90% silver and 10% copper. These coins had a weight of 26.73 grams, a diameter of 38.1mm, and a reeded edge. Peace Dollars were struck in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. Dollars struck in Philadelphia bear no mint mark.


Key to abbreviations used on this page:

D (Denver): The 'D' mint mark is located on the reverse, near the rim, below the tips of the eagle's tail feathers.

S (San Francisco): The 'S' mint mark is located on the reverse, near the rim, below the tips of the eagle's tailfeathers. . Note: Dollars struck in Philadelphia bear no mint mark.
