Peace Silver Dollar PCGS MS 65 is one of America’s most beautiful silver coins struck in what has become known as the “golden age” of legal tender coins.
A time when circulating legal tender was made from real silver. The Peace Silver Dollar PCGS MS 65 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 bringing about this historic design goes to Farran Zerbe of ANA fame and according to numismatic expert Walter Breen this was the first time that a civilian created the need for a silver coin dedicated to peace.
The Peace Silver Dollar PCGS MS 65 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 to the left of the tail feathers. Approximately 270 million coins were struck in 90% silver with a small amount of copper added to insure years of daily monetary circulation.
