When it comes to the design of the Peace Silver Dollar, a competition was held to determine which design would be used for the coin. The contest was made in order to design a coin that would celebrate the peaceful ending of World War I. An Italian-American sculptor named Anthony de Francisci was the winner of the competition and to this day, he is well known for his design. Following the competition, the Peace Silver Dollar was officially approved by the treasury and production of the coin began.
When looking at the front of the coin, you will gaze upon the profile of Lady Liberty. She is based on the profile of de Francisci’s wife, Teresa de Francisci. She is facing the left and her hair, though gathered up on top of her head, is flowing towards the right as if the wind is blowing through it. She is also wearing a crown. Above her head, you will see the word “LIBERTY” and below her face, “IN GOD WE TRUST.” You will also see the year of the coin at the bottom.
On the opposite side, you will see an eagle perched on a rock which says “PEACE”. The bird is looking away from the viewer and holding olive branches, representing peace, in its talons. Above the eagle are two phrases, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “E. PLURIBUS UNUM.” At the midpoint of the coin, you see the phrase “ONE DOLLAR.”
