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 to commemorate its centennial anniversary in 2021, the Peace Dollar has a beautiful proof finish.
This legacy continues with the Peace Silver Dollar Proof Coin that showcases the exquisite craftsmanship that the United States mint has to offer. Proof coins are hand treated, polished, and struck at least twice, giving them a frosted foreground and stunning mirror-like background.
