The Peace Dollar is another beautifully designed coin produced by the United States Mint. It is made out of 90% silver and 10% copper. The coin was designed by Anthond de Francisci's. It was produced from 1921-1928 and in 1934 and 1935. The coin was minted to deplict a coin that would resemble "Peace". and Francisci's design was eventually chosen and used. The Pittman Act of 1918 required the United States Mint to produce millions of silver coins and production began on the coin three years later.

The obverse side of the coin has Lady Liberty in the portrait and "LIBERTY" is centered at the top and the date is centered on the bottom. "IN GOD WE" is seen on the left side of Liberty's neck and "TRUST" is on the right. You may thank that the "U" in trust is a minting error, but that is the way it was designed. On the reverse side of the coin, "UNITED STAES OF AMERICA" is seen centered along the top rim. An eagle is seen perched in the center, "ONE" is seen on the left of the eagle and "DOLLAR" on the right. "PEACE" is centered at the bottom of the coin. The mint mark is located under "ONE" on the reverse. The Peace Dollar was minted in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. No Peace Dollars were produced in Denver in 1924,1925, 1928, and 1935.

As far as values go, the Peace Dollar has a base value of nearly $26. This is due to the silver content that is in the Peace Dollar. The 1921 and the 1928 are valued the most. In good grade or (G), the 1921 Peace Dollar is worth $60. The value of this coin can reach the high 900'ss for a coin that is uncirculated. The 1928 Peace Dollar is worth around $200 in good grade. For one that is uncirculated, the value reaches nearly $1,000. With a base value of $26, the coin is well worth saving if you are able to come across them.

The Peace Dollar was a short lived coin series, which makes it more possible to collect the entire series. Since so many coins were produced, they are not considered rare and you can find them in uncirculated condition fairly easy. It is difficult to find the 1921 and 1928 though. The value of your Peace Dollar depends on the rarity and condition of the coin. The prices/values listed is based on a good grade, which is the average grade for circulated coins.

      Pete, the 1900 Morgan silver dollar has a mass of 26.73g and a diameter of 38.1 mm. I don't know the ratio, which is needed to figure out the circumference. This link may help you.

      This coin is a beautiful design. I wish they would have kept them longer or create some silver coins today other then the one that has been issued since 86.
