1923-S Peace Dollar PCGS MS63
An Early 20's Legend Is Back and Better Than Ever
With World War I at an end and peace returned to the U.S., the first silver Peace Dollars rolled out of the U.S. Mint as commemorative coins in 1921. The original "high-relief" design proved instantly impractical, and the design was upgraded to a "low-relief" design that began production in 1922. Unlike the Morgan Silver Dollars, the predecessor series to the Peace Dollar, far fewer of this new series were created. Now, according to respected numismatist Q. David Bowers, only about 16% of all Peace Dollars are still in existence today.
Fortunately, GovMint.com is able to make available a small number of these coins--now rarer than ever as they also mark the last dollar series for circulation struck in 90% silver.
The Peace Dollar was designed by Anthony de Francisci, with an obverse that features a beautiful bust of Lady Liberty facing left, her crown made up of rays and her hair waving in the wind. The obverse also includes "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date 1923. The reverse of the coin depicts an eagle, wings folded--but instead of the traditional olive branch and arrows in its talons, it holds only an olive branch before a rising sun. The reverse is inscribed with "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and "ONE DOLLAR," as well as the "S" mint mark, indicating it was minted at the San Francisco mint.
