Description

The first US dollar coin with a $1 (USD) face value was the 1804 silver dollar. It featured a right-profile bust of Liberty on the obverse. Silver dollars, and the $1 denomination, were sparsely minted between 1804 and 1836, with the Gobrecht dollar minted at times during this 32-year period.

The first major issuance of silver dollars started in 1836 and continued through 1873. At that point in history, the US was flooded with silver from mines in the southeastern US, and in Nevada in particular. In response to the influx of silver and the US Mint’s free coining of silver at this point in time, silver dollars were suspended for five years. Following the end of free silver coining, silver dollars returned in 1878 and remained in production regularly through 1904. During the 20th century, silver dollar coining became more erratic. The Morgan Dollar design was briefly reissued in 1921 and later replaced that same year by Peace Dollar. The Peace Silver Dollar was struck until 1928, suspended, reintroduced in 1934 and 1935, and then halted for good.

Although these silver dollars are no longer issued, they are not impossible to find. In fact, plenty of examples of these coins remain as both graded collectible items and former circulation coins available as affordable investment options due to the purity of the silver contained within.

In December 1921, the Peace Dollar design was approved by Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon, replacing the Morgan Dollar and marking peace between the U.S. and Germany. Designed by renowned Italian American Sculptor Anthony de Francisci (1887- 1964), the Peace Dollar symbolized the country’s coming of age as an international power, while recognizing the sacrifices made by its citizens in World War I and celebrating victory and peace. Reintroduced in 2021, the Peace Dollar has a beautiful proof finish. The obverse features Liberty in profile, a radiant crown on her head.

Obverse inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and the year of issuance. The reverse depicts an eagle at rest holding an olive branch above the inscription “PEACE.” Additional inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”
