In 1921, eight of America’s most famous artists were invited to submit ideas for the design of a new silver dollar that would symbolize world
peace following the end of World War I and the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. Anthony de Francisci created the winning design and
the image of Liberty on the obverse was modelled on his wife Teresa. On the reverse is a bald eagle holding an olive branch and sitting on
a mountaintop in the sunrise, symbolizing a new day in world history. 

The word ‘peace’ is visible on the rocks beneath the eagle. The first issue from 1921 was created in high relief, but this proved difficult to mint and the relief on later issues was much shallower. Peace dollars were minted continually from 1921 to 1928 and again in 1934 and 1935, and it became the last American silver dollar minted for circulation.
