Designed by Italian-born American artist Anthony de Francisci, the Peace Dollar is one of the most iconic designs in U.S. numismatic history. However, the recognizable design was one of many designs submitted for the Peace Dollar. In fact, a design competition was held in 1921, featuring eight artists, including De Francisci's mentor, Adolph A. Weinman. Most of these designs were lost to time, but photos of Weinman's Peace Dollar sketches have been discovered and brought to life by the Smithsonian.

With the support of the Smithsonian, Weinman's rough sketches have been recreated by master engraver and artist behind the last definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, Jody Clark. The designs were crafted in dual ultra-high relief, with the highest level of detail. These commemoratives also incorporate a "Roman" finish—an experimental finish used by the U.S. Mint in the early 20th century that resulted in a similar luster to ancient coins from the Roman Empire. 

These prestigious 1921 Silver 2 oz Weinman Peace Dollar Dual Ultra-High Relief Roman Finish have an extremely low mintage of 999. Each one is graded as a perfect SP70 by NGC and certified as First Day of Issue designation, with an exclusive Adolph A. Weinman Peace Dollar label, hand-signed by Jody Clark—sculptor of the Weinman Peace Dollar.

Design

The obverse features a left-facing bust of Lady Liberty wearing the "liberty cap," or "Phrygian cap," with a sprig of olive leaves in her hair. Weinman's work is immediately recognizable, with the overall design sharing similarities to the Mercury Dime.

The reverse depicts an image of a seated Lady Liberty holding a hand plow at her side, a reference to the "swords into plowshares" adage. Behind her, a giant bald eagle stands strong, with its wings protectively surrounding her. The extreme level of detail of Jody Clark's craftsmanship is also apparent in the design, with individual hairs and feathers and the wood grain of the hand plow. The Smithsonian Sun Logo is also featured near the bottom of the design.
