San Francisco Peace Dollars — The First Five Years
The San Francisco Mint is known for producing some of the finest-quality coins of any U.S. Mint branch. This set brings together the first five years Peace Silver Dollars were struck in San Francisco! While more than 190 million Peace Silver Dollars were struck during its 10 years of issue, the San Francisco Mint produced only 27% of the total mintage. Each of these 90% fine silver coins comes in Extremely Fine (XF) condition, meaning they actually circulated in commerce during the Roaring ’20s! Your set will arrive in a deluxe presentation case with a storybook on the Peace Silver Dollar series.
America’s last dollar minted for circulation in 90% silver, the Peace Dollar has often been overlooked by collectors obsessed with amassing Morgan Silver Dollars. But as supplies of this beautiful and artistic coin have dwindled, collectors have taken notice. Millions of Peace Dollars met the same fate as the Morgan Dollar during World War II when the Wartime Act of 1942 caused the melting of Peace Dollars for the war effort. Untold millions more were also melted in the 1980s when the price of silver shot up to over $50 per ounce.
No one knows for sure how many historic Peace Silver Dollars remain in existence today, but it is certain that they are some of the most popular and widely collected American coins in the world. Don’t miss your chance to obtain these key-date coins from the fabulous often-overlooked series! Reserve your 1922–1926-S Peace Silver Dollar Five-Piece Set today!
