To memorialize the end of World War One a competition was held to design a peace coin. Italian American sculptor Anthony de Francisci's design won. This guide will give you an idea of how much your peace silver dollars, minted from 1921 to 1935, are worth. The table below provides average coin values and prices based upon the condition of the coin.
The Market for Peace Silver Dollars
Well worn Peace Dollars derive a majority of their value from the silver content of the coin.
Therefore, if the price of silver is relatively high, the coin will be worth only what it's silver content is. Peace silver dollars were a relatively short series of US coins to collect and therefore there is usually a pretty good demand for them. If you want to get paid top-dollar for your Peace Dollars, you need to sort them and organize them so the coin dealer can quickly see what you have.
Key Dates, Rarities, and Varieties
As with all coin collecting, certain dates and rarities will cause some coins to be worth more than others. The following peace silver dollars in any condition, are worth considerable more than common ones. As such, these coins are sometimes counterfeit or altered from common examples. Therefore, before you start celebrating your early retirement with your new found fortune, have the coin authenticated by a reputable coin dealer or third party grading service.
