Peace Silver Dollar Coin

Peace Silver Dollar

The last circulated silver dollar coin minted by the United States was the Peace Silver dollar, which was minted between 1921 and 1928, with additional minting in 1934 and 1935.

Like all US silver dollar coins, Peace Silver Dollars are 90% silver, 10% copper

Peace Silver dollars were produced in response to the Pittman Act, which required the US Mint to produce millions of silver coins to replace older Morgan Silver dollars that were being melted down into bullion to support Great Britain during the First World War.

Peace dollars are so named because the design of the coin was meant to memorialize the peace after World War One.

Peace silver dollars make a great gift, imparting a sense of history while teaching the value of real hard money.  You can own peace silver dollars here…Silver Dollar Coins.
