(1921-1935; 1964) Peace Dollar

CoinTrapTM Commentary: The Peace Dollar is a popular and beautiful collectible among coin enthusiasts.  It is made of .77344 troy ounces of pure silver and has quite a shimmer.  Known primarily for its elegant artistic qualities, the Peace Dollar has quickly become a favorite of collectors.  The value of the Peace Dollar has continued to climb over the years, particularly as coin collecting in general has gained wider adoption at the turn of the millennium and into the 21st century.

To mark the end of hostilities perpetuated during World War I, designer Anthony de Francisco was commissioned to design the Peace Dollar, called by this name because the word “PEACE” is inscribed beneath the talons of a bald eagle in a resting position on the reverse side of the coin.  Lady Liberty adorns the obverse of the coin with a prominent crown reaching heavenward.      

Coin Value: What is the value of your Peace Dollar? As is usually the case in life, it depends. The Peace Dollar coin worth or value depends on these main factors: (1) your coin’s grade, (2) scarcity/demand and (3) the mint (S for San Francisco and D for Denver). Regarding your coin’s grade, it has become a standard in the field of numismatics (coin collecting) to grade coins on a point-scale from 1 (poor) to 70 (perfect). This is also referred to as the “Mint State” or just “MS” for short. Click here to find the up-to-date estimated value of your Peace dollar coin from the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS®), which takes all four factors mentioned above into account*.  If you do not know the grade of your Peace Dollar, you can take it to your local coin dealer and ask that they have it graded at one of the three major coin grading services.

    Although legislation was introduced in the early 1920s by Congress for a new silver dollar to commemorate the end of World War I, the measure never came to a vote because it was unnecessary--due to the fact that the predecessor Morgan dollar coin had been in production for more than 25 years, and hence, alteration of the design did not require the approval of Congress.
