1921 Peace Dollar

The 1921 Peace Silver Dollar is one of the nicest examples of silver dollars the United States has minted and came about thanks to the Pittman Act of 1918, which melted millions or Morgan silver dollars in support of the British and American war effort during WWI. The coin was designed by Anthony de Francisci and the portrait of the liberty face on the 1921 Peace silver dollar was modeled after his wife.

The high relief style of the 1921 Peace Silver dollar allows it to stand out as one of the more unique designs for United States silver dollars. Even in the worst condition, the 1921 Peace silver dollar can carry a premium above the rest of the common silver dollars in the Peace series and, in much higher conditions on the coin grading scale of 1-70, the 1921 Peace silver dollar can be worth several hundred dollars.

If you are lucky enough to discover a 1921 Peace silver dollar that would grade at an MS-65 or higher, it could be worth one thousand dollars or more. Part of the reason for the rarity of the 1921 Peace silver dollar is the high relief minting of the coin. The United States mints moved away from this design in 1922 after merchants complained that the coins were difficult to stack, thereby making them difficult to count in an efficient manner when in the middle of a transaction.

So, although the high relief design of the 1921 Peace silver dollar added to the overall aesthetic beauty of the coin, the functionality of the coin made it difficult to work with. Another reason for the rarity of the 1921 Peace silver dollar was that minting of the 1921 Peace silver dollar didn’t begin until the executive order was signed, just after Christmas, 1921. Production officially began of the 1921 Peace silver dollar on December 28th, 1921, allowing just enough time over the next three days to produce close to a million specimens of the numismatic treasure that is the 1921 Peace silver dollar.

Always a good experience here! Definitely the place in town I enjoy buying coins from, and I’d recommend them to anybody. Helpful staff, reasonable prices, and wide selection.

Grateful for the Nevada Coin and Jewelry shop, I just adore it. I took some collectable figurines in and they bought them. I came out smelling like a rose. You should’ve been there to see the big smile on my face. I ran all the way home to look for some more. Can’t wait to get back! I can sure use the money!


As a first timer in selling, I was a bit apprehensive. I did not know what to expect and was a little worried about a previous reviewers comments. Yes the office was stark and clinical. The staff however, more than made up for any downfall in the decor. Very helpful, polite and understanding to any ‘silly’ questions that were asked. All in all a pleasant experience, and one that should the opportunity arise I would go through again!

A.J. and Robert are so friendly and make it so you have the best deal with the items you bring them. They have so much knowledge about all the items they have in their shop and they like to teach others about what they know…


After visiting a couple of the “traveling gold & silver merchants” who came to Mesquite, I made a call to Nevada Coin & Jewelry in Las Vegas… David was very helpful and professional. Their prices were the best I had seen… I left very satisfied with my trip and the deals we made. I will definitely go there again.

Really cool cats over at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. You would’ve thought that I was “Madonna” the way those guys treated me. I was so mesmerized by all of the antiques, they have in there, I believe I was there for two hours, just looking, unbelieveable! When I went in I was so hot, they offered me a cold bottle of water, how cool is that? It felt like home to me. I wanted to get a price for some old jewelry that was passed down by grandma, I was well satisfied. When I left the shop, I was singing “Money, Money, Money.


While vacationing in Las Vegas I did what a lot of people do I’m sure or at least that’s what I’m telling my wife ..I blew through the money I brought a little quicker than expected and I ended up having to shop my Rolex around to several dealers to save the trip. So I looked online for places, most offers over the phone were low and that’s if they would even quote me in the first place. I spoke to a guy at Nevada Coin and Jewelry who gave me a fair ball park price and a reasonable explanation as to why his number couldn’t be solid. Went down expecting to get the lower number and in fact Robert their Rolex expert said my Rolex was a better model then I had described. He paid me a higher number than he quoted. Thanks for saving my vacation guys.

We were really pleased with the help that AJ gave us concering our gold coins and watches. I don’t think we could have received a better deal anywhere. All of the personnel at Nevada Coin & Jewelry were very professional. We will recommend them to our friends.

Wonderful experience, Nick and Laura made it seamless and stress free. Thank you! They also sell super cool items!!

What friendly staff. They help you sell your items even if they don’t have a use for it by calling other shops around the area to see if they could use it… They want you to have the best out come from selling your items. I was so happy I decided to go to them!


A great selection of coins and other numismatic related material. Very professional.

My wife cashed in some coins and we got top dollar. We have sold to others before but no more, we found a real professional store in Nevada Coin & Jewelry. “Thank You”
