Peace Dollar Identification

The “Peace Dollar” was the successor of the Morgan Dollars while silver coinage was the responsibility of the United States Mint. The image of lady liberty was emblematic of the peace symbol; thus, the landed eagle on an live branch, with its wings folded, signify serenity. This design was commissioned to Anthony de Francisci, and later revised by the Mint Chief Engraver Morgan with Anthony’s approval. Mintage production was divided into two periods: 1921 to 1928 and 1934 to 1935. Below are the mintage figures:
