Premier Coin Galleries - Silver Peace Dollar

Silver Peace Dollar Specifications


America’s first coin to commemorate peace owes its existence to Farran Zerbe, veteran numismatist, Historian of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and founder of the Chase Manhattan Bank Money Museum. At the 1920 Chicago ANA Convention, Zerbe presented a paper entitled “Commemorate the Peace with a Coin for Circulation” which proposed a new coin (Half Dollar or Dollar) commemorating the end of World War I, “the war to end all wars”.
