Peace Dollars

Peace Dollars have their own charm, even if they suffer from a design which was biting off more than the mint could do. When they first came out, the design was just to complex and the mint was lacking expereince in making dollar coins. A redesign reduced some of the high points and made a more consistant strike.

Liberty's new Hair Style and even facial expression reflect the heighted sense of independence by American Women in the early 20th century. This a 20th Century women with little thought given to the classic look of coins like the Morgan Dollar.

These links are too a wonderful 1922 MS63 PCGS graded example.

This coin is one of my favorites, although it is actually owned my one of my daughters.

Here are the new addition Peace Dollars added to the Collection

1924 Peace Dollar - Purchased from Stacks. I noticed after the purchase that this coin would be a body bag coin because of the scratch on the tail. Beware when buying from Stacks. They will rip you off like this.
Here is a good short video to show the luster on this coin, which is quite remoarkable

The Safir Family Internet Coins Library: Foriegn Coins.

Several mints from around the world make exciting coin designs in circulating alloys, silver and gold. Among my favorites are the Perth Mint in Austrailia which produces a variety of coins for nations mostly through out the Pacific Rim. The Neatherlands has also produced some interesting designs, and several private US based mints have produced foreign currency on contract, include the Franklin Mint which has produced many Israeli Coins.
Our interest in foreign coins has been nominal but rapidly growing as it seems that US designs are so stuck in the mud. Also, foreign mints are creating bold new designs with color and bimetal designs that are both eye catching and fun.
