Peace Dollars – AU (almost uncirculated) 500 coins
Designed by Anthony de Francisci, the Peace Dollar was issued in 1921 to commemorate the peace following World War I. The obverse depicts a left facing profile of Liberty, the word LIBERTY around the rim above her radiating crown, IN GOD WE TRUST horizontally and the date at the bottom. The reverse features a perched American bald eagle with an olive branch in its talons, the word PEACE below its perch; above its head UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and E PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE DOLLAR horizontally across the coin just below the eagle’s body.
I carry a 1925 Peace in the coin pocket of my jeans every day. True story.
