Peace Dollar  
The pictures in this article portray my personal brilliant uncirculated Silver Peace Dollar. I just purchased this coin and am really proud of it. As you can see in the pictures, it's in terrific condition and is quite a nice addition to my portfolio. Moreover, it's my first Peace Dollar. I own a handful of silver Morgan Dollars (for example check out my PCGS Morgan Dollar) but had never purchased a Peace Dollar until now. I knew it was time to own one so I decided to purchase this Peace Dollar from one of my favorite coin shops out there, GovMint.

Silver Peace Dollars & The Story Behind Them

It's a pretty fascinating story. In 1918 many Morgan Silver dollars were destroyed and melted to pay for World War I. (As a side note, this is one of the reasons to purchase Morgan Dollars, there just aren't that many of them left, especially ones PCGS rated in great condition!) After the war, the government started minting Silver Peace Dollars between 1921 and 1928, with additional ones in 1934 and 1935. The Peace Dollar contains 0.77 troy ounces of silver (it's 90% silver alloyed with 10% copper). The Peace Silver Dollar is perhaps best known for the eagle (with wings folded) and the word "Peace" on the reverse.

I Bought My Silver Peace Dollar From

As mentioned a few times throughout this site, I'm a big fan of I have made a variety of purchases from GovMint and am consistently pleased. In this particular case, my Silver Peace Dollar arrived in a neat little collector's box (see the picture below) with a durable plastic case around the coin. The coin itself is in great "brilliant uncirculated" shape as I expected. Moreover, I'm pleased that I got a 1922 Peace Dollar. This is the second year for this coin and I truly appreciate older date coins. If there ever is another gold confiscation, it's going to be important to own older coins that are "collectibles". While the government would confiscate bullion coins, they would most likely spare collectibles. Of course, I don't think there will be another gold (or silver) confiscation but it's good to prepare for this possibility.

A "Must Have" Coin

To close out I'd like to highlight that the Silver Peace Dollar is a must have coin. Just like the Morgan Dollar, this is an iconic American coin, one with a lot of history. I'm a smaller gold and silver collector so I must really prioritize my purchases. I decided to buy this particular coin because I couldn't imagine having a well rounded gold and silver collection without at least one Peace Dollar. It's a beautiful coin and I highly recommend buying one for your collection.
