Minted to celebrate peace at the end of WWI, the Liberty Head “Peace” Dollar was struck for just ten years – from 1921-1928 and again in 1934-1935. Our last circulating silver dollar series ever, each coin was struck in .900 silver and features a modern, art deco profile of Lady Liberty on the obverse. On the reverse, a proud American eagle clutches a laurel wreath, truly a bird of Peace. Now you can add some of these historic coins to your collection, in Brilliant Uncirculated to Fine condition.
