It is quite easy, the reverse of peace dollars have an eagle sitting on a rock inscribed "PEACE", the reverse of Morgan dollars have an eagle with olive branches and arrows.

All Peace dollars have the same design. The difference between the 1921 Peace Dollar and the 1921 Morgan dollar is that Liberty looks completely different. In the more common 1921 Morgan dollar, Liberty wears a crown with the word "LIBERTY" on it, on the reverse of the Morgan dollar, there is an eagle with olive branches and arrows in its talons along with a wreath under it. On the Peace Dollar, Liberty looks like she has rays coming out of her head and on the reverse there is an Eagle sitting on a rock inscribed "PEACE", there is no wreath on the reverse.


Two types of silver dollars were issued in 1921, a Morgan dollar and a Peace dollar. The easy way to tell the difference is on the reverse (back) of a Peace dollar the eagles wings are folded, on the Morgan they are spread out. Post a new question after you find out which one you have.


You've got to be more specific. All dollar coins prior to the Eisenhower dollar of 1971-1978 feature Liberty on them, even the Morgan dollar (called that because the artist who designed it had a last name of Morgan). The most commonly confused silver dollar types are the Morgan and Peace dollars because they share a date, 1921, where the Morgan dollar is quite common but the Peace dollars command quite a bit more money. The easiest way to determine the two is to look on the reverse, on a Morgan dollar the eagle will have its wings outstretched and is encircled by a wreath. On a Peace dollar, the eagle will be perched on a rock inscribed "PEACE". The front of the coins have noticeable differences too, but are much harder to describe in text than the reverse.


Each is a different series of US silver one dollar coins, Morgan dollars were made from 1878 to 1904 and in 1921 for the last time. The first year Peace dollars were made was 1921 and made to 1928 and then in 1934 & 1935 for the last time. Each series have the same amount of silver (.77344oz) in them, but the main difference is the design of the coins.


Your coin is a Morgan dollar. Both the Morgan and Peace designs were struck in 1921, but the Morgan coins are much more common. Please see the Related Question for more information.


A 1922 dollar with the word "Peace" on the back would be a Peace dollar rather than a Morgan dollar. "Morgan" refers to George T. Morgan, the artist who designed the silver dollars minted from 1878 to 1904 and in 1921. There's more information at the question "What is the value of a 1922 US silver dollar?"


Peace dollars were minted from 1921 to 1935. A dollar dated 1898 would be called a Morgan dollar, after its designer George Morgan.


Two types of silver dollars were issued in 1921, a Morgan dollar and a Peace dollar. The easy way to tell the difference is on the reverse (back) of a Peace dollar the eagles wings are folded, on the Morgan they are spread out. Post a new question after you find out which one you have. The values are very different.

Is it a Morgan or Peace dollar? A Morgan dollar features a personification of Liberty with a crown saying "LIBERTY" on it.

The reverse of a Peace dollar features a perched eagle sitting on a rock inscribed "PEACE". Without knowing the type of coin, it is impossible to state a value.

The 1881 "Peace Dollar" does not exist. Peace Dollars were minted starting in 1921. Prior to that the Morgan dollars were minted from 1878 up to and including 1921 (Yes both Peace and Morgan dollars were minted in 1921.


Two different US one dollar coins were made in 1921. One is a PEACE dollar the other is a MORGAN dollar. A Peace dollar is worth more than a Morgan, it has the word PEACE on the rock on the reverse of the coin the eagle is standing on, it's worth at least $70.00 and the Morgan is $33.00-$39.00 but only IF the coins are in collectible condition.
