First & Last Peace Silver Dollar Set
Inspired by the newborn peace after World War I, Anthony de Francisci designed what was to become the last 90% Silver Dollar issued for circulation. Known as the Peace Dollar, the coin was first struck at the end of 1921 but was not released into circulation until 1922. Minted in limited numbers, the initial 1921 Peace Dollars were all stamped in High Relief, which was quickly altered due to its impracticality in daily use. Production of the dollars ran from 1921 to 1928 and then resumed in 1934, lasting until 1935 when the U.S. Mint ceased production. With the rise in silver prices over the years, many Peace Dollars have been melted for
their scrap value, making these coins more rare each year! Each coin comes in Very Fine or better condition and is individually protected in a house slab. The collection is housed in a handsome cherrywood-finish display case.
