Collecting The 1921 Peace Silver Dollar| 1921 Silver Dollar Coin

The Peace Silver Dollar is the last TRUE silver dollar to be minted by the United States Mint.  The Eisenhower & Susan B Anthony dollars are clad coins that contain no silver & the American Silver Eagle is a bullion coin not meant for general circulation.

The design was by Anthony DeFrancisci, who made his name as a designer of medals, &  features an obverse depiction of LIBERTY markedly different from those used in the past.  She faces left, rather then right as on the Morgan Dollar & Barber type coins, with a crown of rays on her head.  The Reverse depicts an Eagle at rest on a mound with thew word PEACE on it & rays extending out from the mound.  Mint marks for the Denver & San Francisco mints appear on the reverse under the Eagle's tail feathers.

The mint had re-intoduced the Morgan Dollar at the beginning of 1921, at the time, no Morgan Dollars had been minted since 1904.  The provisions of the Pittman Act called for up to 350,000,000 existing Morgan Dollars to be melted for bullion, & for these coins to be replaced by new coins minted from silver purchased by the Federal Government from US silver mines at a fixed price of $1 an ounce.  After minting nearly 86,000,000 Morgan Dollars at all 3 mints, the 1st 1921 Peace Dollars were minted at the Philadelphia mint.  1921 was the only year that Peace Dollars were not minted at at least 1 other branch mint.

The 1921 Peace Silver Dollars were minted in high relief, reminiscent of the medals Anthony DeFrancisci was known to design.  When it was learned that the high relief made the coins difficult to stack, newer low relief dies were created for subsequent years. 1921 was the only year the coin was minted in high relief.  1,006,473 1921 Peace Dollars were minted & it is one of the key Dates of the Peace Dollar series.

Like its Morgan counterpart, the Peace dollar measure 38.1 mm across &  is 90% silver with each coin containing  .7734 ounces of pure silver.

While all 3 mint marks of 1921 Morgan Silver Dollars are common, the 1921 Peace Dollar is much rarer & much more valuable.  While the value of the average 1921 Morgan Dollar ranges between $12-$18 apiece, the Value of the 1921 Peace Dollar is much higher.  They range between $100-$170 in circulated condition & $270 & up to $1000 or more in MS60 or above.
