This Mint State 1922 San Francisco issue Peace Dollar is the rarest of the three 1922 Peace Dollars. Although it was created in higher mintage numbers than its Philadelphia or Denver counterparts, existing S-mint examples, especially in Mint State, are scarce owing to more active circulation on the West Coast. With an MS 66 grading, its surface is sharp, lustrous, virtually white and extremely impressive in person, placing it among the very best of its type.

Struck in .900 fine silver, the Peace Dollar was minted only from 1921-1928 and from 1934-1935. It was minted during a time of economic boom for the U.S., and silver coinage was needed to replace the Morgan Dollars that had been melted down under the Pittman Act. Both its name and design were intended as a hopeful message of peace after the devastation of WWI. The coin was designed by Italian-American sculptor Anthony de Francisci through a contest; the obverse features the goddess Liberty in profile in high relief while the reverse depicts a bald eagle clutching an olive branch.
