The standardized Sheldon scale of coin grading is normally thought to offer attractive items for collectors and investors at the upper end of the 70-point range, with higher grades representing comparatively fewer visible flaws and improved condition. Less commonly recognized is the potential value of coins at the opposite end of that spectrum, though: “cull” coins with grades of eight or less, indicating extensive wear, damage, and visible flaws. These coins offer the appeal of highly affordable premiums while still retaining both their historical significance and the fundamental value of their constituent precious metals. Provident Metals offers the 1921 Peace Dollar Silver Coin in cull grades for online purchase.

These 1921 Peace Dollar Silver Coins come in a flip-top plastic container and come from a high-relief striking that may offset some forms of wear and damage. Their “cull” quality grading can indicate various forms of wear, discoloration, scratches, dents, and perhaps even bends or holes, but its precious metals content and market value are still guaranteed. Provident Metals fully insures each piece throughout the shipping process.
Lady Liberty appears in a radiant crown on the obverse field, along with the inscriptions “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “1921.”
A perched eagle appears on the reverse field with an olive branch at its feet and rays of light in the background. This is accompanied by the lettering “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “ONE DOLLAR,” and “PEACE.”
The Peace dollar was first struck in 1921 in response to the Pittman Act, which aimed at revitalizing the supply of the American silver dollar, and it was destined to be the last coin of its kind to be issued with standard circulation in mind. It was minted in vast numbers, which led to the survival of substantial numbers of uncirculated coins down to the present day, but which also led to a persisting supply of circulated coins with substantially higher levels of wear. The coins showing the heaviest visual impairments, and the ones most affordably available to collectors or investors on a budget, are “cull” coins like those available in this listing.
