|The 1921 High Relief Silver Peace Dollar is a popular issue for many reasons. It is the first year of a new type of silver dollar, it is the only year the type was issued in high relief and the coin has a relatively low mintage of just over one million pieces struck. Most importantly, it is an overall beautiful design, particularly in the high relief format. This example of the 1921 High Relief Silver Peace Dollar has been graded MS66 by PCGS. The coin is untoned and has nice overall luster. The strike of the coin is better than typical for the issue, but still shows just a bit of softness on the highest points of Liberty’s hair on the obverse and on the eagle on the reverse. The piece is exceptionally clean with just a few very light marks in the open fields and on Liberty’s neck and cheek, all of which are appropriate for the assigned grade. A wonderful and flashy high-grade example of the popular first-year high-relief Peace Dollar.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
