1921 American (US) $1 Peace Silver Dollar Commemorative Coin ICCS Graded MS-63


A new design for the US silver dollar was first suggested at the end of World War I to commemorate the restoration of Peace. A competition was arranged by the Commission of Fine Arts to select a new silver dollar design. From the group of nine famous artists invited to submit designs, the winning entry was created by Anthony de Francisci. The obverse and reverse designs showed some similarities to the Saint Gaudens Double Eagle, but the artist denied these similarities. He indicated that the image of Liberty was based on his 22 year old wife Teresa Cafarelli.



Coin features the head of Liberty, facing left. Her hair is bound in a bun with several locks loose and flowing backward in the wind. Liberty wears a tiara with rays and has her mouth slightly agape. The word “Liberty” appears above and the date is below. The motto “In God We Trust” is in a straight line, on opposite sides of Liberty’s neck.



Coin features an eagle perched on a rock, facing right. An olive branch is clasped in the eagle’s talons and rays of sunlight emanate from the lower right. The inscriptions “United States of America” and “E Pluribus Unum” appear above the eagle in concentric arcs. The word “Peace” appears at the base of the coin, marking the only time the motto has appeared on circulating US coinage. The denomination “One Dollar” is in a straight line, split by the eagle.

Note: The photo of this item is the actual coin in ICCS graded envelope.
