Money Talks 1921 Peace Dollar Criticised By TKI) HAMMKH CLJbrarlan. American Numismatic Association. Not since the public became aroused over the $10 and S20 gold piece?, of 1907 has another coin caused such wide interest and criticism as the peacr dollar of 1921. The peace dollar truly was a collector'.* item, since it was author- lied at the suggeHttcm of tho American Numismatic Association. Association members adopted n resolution at their convention in Chicago in AuKUnt, 1020, anklnK for a coin that ".shall be of an appropriate doui^n commemorative of the termination of the war "between Germany and the United States. Representatives of the association met with 'a congressional committee to [press the request Tor a coin commemorating peace. A bill providing for such a coin wa» introduced May 9, 1921. but the dollar was utruck later that year on authorization of the' treasury department, without the need if leirl slat ion. The coins were minted In December. 1921, and placed in circulation January 3, 3922. The Liberty head "an It stands i» a composite one." explained the designer, Anthony Jo Frunalncl. HL< design was selected from a- montf eight submitted to the treasury. There wan some criticism because Mir..; Liberty airpcnrf'I to have her mouth open. Amonp the critical editorial comment was one piece that called the coin a "flapped dollar". Tnc term flapped waa just becoming popular in apeech. movies and stories. Some members of the American Numismatic Association didn't .'ike the coin, cither. One thought the liberty head represented a "boy of 10." Main objection was the lack of anything emblematical of peace, other than the word peace at the bottom of the tails side. One writer felt that a dove should have been used In lieu of the usual eagle on the reverse. The peace dollars were issued from 1921 to 1928, and In 193-1 and 1935. None has been Issued since 1935.
