Description
The Peace Dollar had been out of production for 6 years when, in 1934, the US Mint was ordered to purchase domestically produced silver. This supported the silver industry during tough times, and allowed the mint to revive the coin for two more years. Slightly over seven million Peace Dollars were minted in 1934 and 1935, including the example seen here.
