By "upside down", do you mean that the eagle is upside down when you flip the coin side to side, like the pages of a book, or top to bottom, like a calendar? Compare your dollar to any coin in your pocket change. If the eagle is upside down when flipped side to side, just like the other coins, you have a normal silver dollar worth maybe $12 to $15 depending on condition. If it's upside down when flipped like a calendar, you could have a mint error that needs to be checked by a specialist. Note that nearly all U.S. coins use what's called "coin rotation", where the front and back (obverse and reverse) are opposite in orientation. Some other countries (Canada, U.K., EU, for example) use "medal rotation" where the obverse and reverse point the same direction. It's just a matter of what each issuer's mints chose to use.
All 1967 US quarter dollars have the eagle upside down.
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.
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.
There is no 1921 barber silver dollar, it is either a peace dollar (eagle perched on a rock engraved PEACE on the reverse) or a Morgan dollar (Eagle with gothic lettering above it saying "In God we Trust" on the reverse)
Eisenhower was on the one dollar coin, and it's worth one dollar.
The simple answer is, look on the back of the coin. The rock the eagle is on has the word PEACE on it.
Hi, a 1928-D Peace Dollar is worth $14.00 :)
1922 is the most common date for a Peace dollar, values are $14.00-$19.00 for average coins.
Is it a Morgan or Peace dollar? A Morgan dollar features a personification of Liberty with a crown saying "LIBERTY" on it. A Peace dollar has a personification of Liberty with rays of light coming out of her head. The reverse of a Morgan dollar has an Eagle with arrows and an olive branch and a wreath under 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 1922 is probably a peace dollar. It would have the word peace on the side with the eagle. The 1921 is probably a Morgan dollar. It has a Liberty head on one side and an eagle on the other. These are worth about $25-35 on average.
It's a 1924 Peace dollar not a American Silver Eagle and the date is very common with values of $14.00-$19.00 in circulated condition
That description of the eagle would make it a 1921 Morgan dollar, NOT a Peace dollar. It's an extremely common date, with coins often selling in the $20-$25 range.
Two kinds of silver dollars were made in 1921, a Morgan dollar & Peace dollar. The easy way to tell the difference is on the back of the Peace dollar is the word peace under the eagle so ask a new question when you know what one you have.
The 1924 silver dollar is called a Peace dollar because it says Peace on the side with the eagle. It is worth about $25 for the silver alone. If the condition is better, it is worth more.
The coin is NOT a "Silver Eagle", it's a Peace dollar. Silver Eagles are 1 ounce bullion coins of pure silver, first made in 1986. A 1935 Peace dollar is 90% silver, most circulated coins are valued from $30.00-$40.00.
There are 2 One Dollar silver coins dated 1921 a Morgan Dollar that is very common and a Peace Dollar that is not so common. We need to know which on you have. A good way to tell the two apart is one the back of the Peace Dollar under the eagle is the word Peace.
From $75.00 to $180.00 in circulated condition
The two types are the Morgan Dollar (common, only worth silver scrap) and the Peace Dollar (worth much more than silver scrap, especially if uncirculated) The easiest way to distinguish between the two types is to look on the reverse, the Morgan dollar has an Eagle, wings stretched surrounded by a wreath. The Peace dollar has an eagle sitting on a rock inscribed PEACE with its wings folded.
The 1925 Peace dollar is a common date of the series. Circulated examples with no mintmarks have current market values of $30.00- $37.00 depending on the actual grade of the coin
The last Morgan dollars were minted in 1921. If your dollar has an eagle with folded wings on the back it's a Peace dollar.
$6.00.. almost every coin is made so that the front will be facing north and the back will be facing south.. 1922 is also one of the most minted years for Peace Dollars. Sorry! <><><> Due to the SHARP increase in the price of silver, any of the 90% silver dollars are worth at least $30 for the value of the silver, plus any collector's value. As of 4-8-2011
A Morgan silver dollar is a large dollar coin, on the front there should be a depiction of Lady Liberty's face wearing a small crown saying "LIBERTY" on it the reverse features an eagle with olive branches and arrows and a wreath at the bottom. They were dated 1878 to 1904 and also made in 1921. The only other coin that could be easily confused with a Morgan dollar is a Peace Dollar of which some were also minted in 1921, they have the same size, but the liberty on a Peace dollar looks like there are rays coming out of her head and the reverse of a Peace dollar has an eagle perched on a rock engraved PEACE.
