Why purchase this impeccably graded First Day of Issue proof release of the U.S. Mint’s 2023-S Silver Peace Dollar coin?
The classic Silver Peace Dollar series was issued by the U.S Mint from 1921-1935. Designed by notable Italian-American sculptor Anthony de Francisci, the imagery of the coin symbolized the emergence of the U.S. as a formidable global power after the conclusion of the First World War and the subsequent restoration of peacetime. For the Peace Dollar’s centennial anniversary in 2021, the U.S. Mint re-introduced the popular series with the same powerful imagery and a higher metallic purity. While no modern Peace Dollars were issued in 2022 due to a shortage of silver blanks, the series is back in 2023! This 2023-S Proof Peace Dollar represents the first proof issue in the modern Peace Dollar series and the very first Peace Dollar struck with a proof finish for collectors at the San Francisco Mint!
