The Morgan Dollar was born shortly after the discovery of the Comstock Lode during the 1850s, which was one of the largest silver strikes in history. The Treasury Department decided to strike dollar coins with all the incoming silver. Morgan Dollars were minted from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921.
British engraver George T. Morgan recruited a Philadelphia schoolteacher named Anna Willess Williams to pose as Lady Liberty while he sculpted the design for this coin. A portrait based on her likeness graces the obverse. The coin’s reverse features the heraldic eagle, clutching arrows and an olive branch in its talons, that has come to symbolize America’s strength.
After World War I, the American numismatic community called for the minting of a new coin to commemorate the restoration of peace. The Peace Dollar was designed to accomplish this mission. Peace Dollars were minted from 1921 to 1928, and again from 1934 to 1935.
The federal Commission of Fine Arts held a competition where the country’s greatest sculptors and medalists competed for their chance to design this coin. A young Italian immigrant named Anthony de Francisci won. The Peace Dollar’s obverse depicts a profile of a crowned Lady Liberty with flowing hair. The reverse features an American eagle resting upon a rock that is inscribed with the word “peace.”
