Peace Silver Dollars – Set of Three – 1922, 1924, 1934

The Peace Silver Dollars are displayed in stamped holders marking special dates in U.S. history.  The United States Peace Dollar is one of the most popular silver coins ever
produced by the U.S. Mint. The coins feature a beautifully detailed design of historical importance. Because the coins were only minted for a few years and were produced in limited quantities, they are highly sought after by coin collectors and enthusiasts.

Collectors as well as history buffs will enjoy the historical background listed on the holders.
The collection can be yours for $99.00.

The Peace silver dollar was introduced in December 1921.  Designed by medalist Anthony de Francisci, it commemorated the signing of formal peace treaties between the Allied forces and Germany and Austria. These treaties officially ended the Allies’ World War I hostilities with these two countries. In 1922 the Mint made silver dollar production its top priority, causing other denominations to be produced sparingly if at all that year. Production ceased temporarily after 1928; original plans apparently called for only a one-year suspension, but this was extended by the Great Depression. Mintage resumed in 1934, but for only two years.
