Peace Silver Dollar Circulated – Mixed Fine/AU Condition
Available By the Roll (20 coins) – 100 Count Bag or 500 Count Bag
The Peace Silver Dollar Circulated is one of America’s most iconic examples of what has become known as the “golden age” of legal tender coins. A time when circulating legal tender was actually made from real silver. The Peace Silver Dollar Circulated was designed by Anthony de Francisci, an Italian immigrant who came to America to pursue the American dream. His wife, Maria Cafarelli was used as the model for Liberty which adorns the front of the coin and the reverse depicts the statutory American Eagle required by Congress.
The credit for a special silver coin designed to celebrate peace goes to Ferran Zerbe of ANA fame. According to numismatic expert Walter Breen this was the first time that a civilian of sorts wielded such power.
The Peace Silver Dollar Circulated was struck between 1921 and 1935 and saw wide circulation in this country and abroad. These coins were minted at the San Francisco Mint (S Mint Mark), Denver Mint (D Mint Mark) and the Philadelphia Mint (No Mint Mark). The mint mark can be found on the reverse of the coin next to the lower portion of the Eagle’s tail. Approximately 270 million coins were struck in .900 fine silver with a small amount of copper added to insure it would hold up to years of daily monetary circulation.
Each coin contains 0.77 ounce of pure silver and circulated examples trade at a premium over their silver content because of their history and popularity. Because these silver dollars were produced in such large quantities they generally follow the silver market and have become a popular silver bullion choice for those looking for possible barter material. At times the premium on these legal tender coins moves higher because of demand and the fact that they are no longer in production.
