In 1918, Congress passed the Pittman Act requiring the United States Mint to resume silver dollar coining. The last silver dollars issued in the United States were the Silver Morgan Dollars issued for a 27th and final time in 1904. The 1921 release started with the Silver Morgan Dollars returning to production while the US Mint sought out a new design for the series. In December 1921, the new Silver Peace Dollar went into production at the mint.
All of the 2021 Silver Peace Dollars in this product listing are packaged in plastic slabs with a perfect certification from the PCGS. Mint State 70 coins have full, original mint luster and come with no detractions of any kind. The First Day of Issue designation is for coins received for grading within 24 hours of release from the mint.
On the obverse side of 2021 Silver Peace Dollar Coins is a depiction of Lady Liberty. This left-profile relief of Liberty includes a towering crown on her head with her hair flowing freely in the breeze.
The reverse field of 2021 Silver Peace Dollars comes with an image of an American bald eagle. The design shows an eagle at rest with its wings down at its sides as it sits on an olive branch. Sun rays feature on the horizon in the distance. The Silver Peace Dollar was the result of public demand for a new design reflecting the national mood after World War I. Americans grew more insistent after the war on an isolationist stance and the resting eagle on this side is meant to symbolize the nation’s desire for long-standing peace in the 1920s.
