First is Always Better! The 1922 Low-Relief Peace Dollar That Began a Beloved Series.

In 1921, a trial-run of "high-relief" commemorative coins was struck of the Peace Dollar. However, that design was deemed impractical, and a new, "low-relief" approach was taken in 1922. Now you can own the first year of this new version of the Peace Dollar, minted at the San Francisco mint. Peace Dollars were created to commemorate the end of World War I and to reintroduce silver to the market after so many Morgan Silver Dollars were melted down during the war. The Peace Dollar series was only minted for approximately ten years, and three times fewer Peace Dollars were struck for circulation as compared to its predecessor series, the Morgan Dollar. In addition, the Peace Dollars were the final U.S. Silver Dollars to be struck in 90% silver.

The design of the Peace Dollar is iconic, appropriate for such an important coin. Its obverse features the head of Lady Liberty wearing a crown of rays modeled after the design of the Statue of Liberty. Imprinted on the obverse are "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date 1922. The reverse features an eagle at rest clutching an olive branch before a rising sun, along with the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the denomination "ONE DOLLAR," as well as the "S" mint mark, indicating it was minted at the San Francisco mint. Your beautiful Peace Dollar has been graded MS63 by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), indicating you'll receive your coin in uncirculated condition with only a few marks that don't detract from its imagery or appeal. A small number of these coins are available through GovMint.com, and given that they represent the first year of the low-relief style, they are not expected to last long.
