In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Peace Dollar, the United States Mint has struck a very limited quantity of 2021-dated Peace Dollars, with a total mintage of only 200,000 coins being produced.
In December 1921, Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon approved the new Peace Dollar, which replaced the Morgan Dollar and served as a symbol of the United States' commitment to peace with Germany.
The Peace Dollar commemorated the country's coming of age as an international power, while also acknowledging the sacrifices made by its inhabitants during World War I and commemorating triumph and peace in the aftermath of the conflict.
The United States Mint is pleased to announce the release of the 2021 Peace Dollar, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of this famous silver dollar.
This recreation was developed with the application of modern technology and historical assets from the United States Mint.
Uncirculated polish gives it a lovely appearance. On the reverse, Liberty is depicted in profile, with a dazzling crown above her head.
The inscriptions on the reverse of the coin are "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the year of issue. The obverse displays an eagle at repose holding an olive branch above the word "PEACE," which is inscribed below the image.
The words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and "ONE DOLLAR" are also included on the coin.
