The dollar of new design issued from December 1921 through 1935 was a commemorative peace coin. The Peace dollar was issued without congressional sanction, under the terms of the Pittman Act, which referred to the bullion and in no way affected the design. Anthony de Francisci, a medalist, designed this dollar. His monogram is located in the field of the coin under the neck of Liberty.

The new Peace dollar was placed in circulation on January 3, 1922; 1,006,473 pieces had been struck in December 1921.

The high relief of the 1921 design was found impractical for coinage and was modified to low or shallow relief in 1922, after 35,401 coins had been made and most of them melted at the mint. The rare matte and satin finish proofs of 1922 are of both the high-relief style of 1921 and the normal-relief style.

Legislation dated August 3, 1964, authorized the coinage of 45 million silver dollars, and 316,076 dollars of the Peace design dated 1964 were struck at the Denver Mint in 1965. Plans for completing this coinage were subsequently abandoned and all of these coins were melted. None were preserved or released for circulation. Many deceptive reproductions exist.

Sharply struck, prooflike Peace dollars have highly reflective surfaces and are very scarce, usually commanding substantial premiums.

A Guide Book of Peace Dollars

If you collect Peace silver dollars, we highly recommend this book for your personal library: A Guide Book of Peace Dollars (2016), by Roger W. Burdette.

The silver Peace dollar issued from 1921 through 1935 was a coin that commemorated the end of the most traumatic war in human history. In the Guide Book of Peace Dollars, award-winning author Roger W. Burdette explores these fascinating and collectible coins, covering every date and mintmark of America's last 90% silver dollar. He also studies the mysterious 1964-D Peace dollar, as well as Proofs, patterns, trial pieces, errors and misstrikes, countermarks, die varieties, and famous collections. Burdette explores the origins and history of the Peace dollar (including the American Numismatic Association's involvement), early designs and casts, the coin's production process, ways to collect, preservation, the market effect of hoards and meltings, and unusual examples. Other features include a coin-by-coin analysis with market values and certified population data, biographies of key participants in the Peace dollar's story, Van Allen Mallis numbers, a bibliography, and more. The classic Peace dollar evokes the end of the Great War, the celebrations of the Roaring Twenties, fancy cars and flappers, Great Gatsby style riches, and the dramatic stock-market crash of 1929. Roger Burdette has captured the romance of these large silver coins, including the mysterious 1964, and shows you how to form a valuable, high-quality collection. Q. David Bowers

Collectible U.S. Coins

The first coins used in the New World were early colonial issue coins dating back to 1652 with issues from Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey, as well as coins minted by other countries. The first official U.S. coin dates back to 1792, when Congress passed the Coinage Act to establish the U.S. Mint. President George Washington appointed David Rittenhouse as the first director of the Mint. After the Mint produced the first circulation coins (some 11,178 copper coins), they later produced the first gold coins, including the $5 Half Eagle and the $10 Eagle.

Since then there have been various coins minted by the U.S. government, from the 1-cent Indian Head, to the 3-cent silvers and nickels, Mercury dimes, Seated Liberty quarters, Morgan dollars and many designs and denominations in between.

Collectors may begin by collecting all coin denominations from a specific year, or all coin varieties from a specific series. Or they may collect their way through different die varieties. Collecting error coins can be interesting, challenging and a lot of fun.
