Interesting Facts About the Peace Silver Dollar:
-- The inscription "PEACE" appears on the rock below the American Eagle standing guard for freedom. It was the first coin ever to commemorate Peace. The inscription refers to the belated 1921 Peace Treaty between the United States and Germany, which formally ended World War I.
-- The silver dollars obverse was patterned on the Statue of Liberty. Designer Anthony DeFrancisci used his wife Teresa as a model. Both were Italian immigrants whose first glimpse of the Statue of Liberty had been an unforgettable experience. The designer's initials are visible below the neck of Liberty.
-- On the reverse of the Peace dollar, a powerful Eagle perched on a mountain ledge grasps an olive branch. The sun's rays echo the radiants rising from Liberty's hair.
-- The 90% silver Peace dollar was America's last circulating silver dollar. Since the series was retired in 1935, no U.S. silver dollars have been issued for commerce. (The 40% silver Ike dollars and recent 90% silver commemorative dollars were issued by the U.S. Mint directly to collectors at a premium.)
-- Only three Peace dollars were minted for every ten earlier Morgan silver dollars. Today only one Peace dollar survives for every two Morgans.
-- As the last circulating U.S. 90% silver dollar, this handsome coin will always have special status. Because of attrition in commerce and huge melts after recall, only a fraction of original mintages survive in collectable quality.
