A Lady of Beauty
Good Morning Everyone !
My Peace dollar collection is now complete. A really good friend sent me this lady of beauty to celebrate my birthday and Veteransâ€™s day. In my mind, Xmas came early! When I started this collection, I did so with a 1921 Peace dollar that my mom left me. If she were still living, she would be 89 today. Sheâ€™s the reason I wanted to complete this collection. The old saying â€śsometimes friends are more valuable than moneyâ€ť still holds true to this day and is an important lesson that Iâ€™ve learned in life.
I donâ€™t know the mintage of this coin, but if you want to know the other specifics you can just read the certificate of authenticity that Iâ€™ve included in the pictures. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I hadnâ€™t seen my brother and sisters in over 2 years. 1 of my cousins in the picture below I hadnâ€™t seen in over 10 years. There was a lot of catching up to do in just one afternoon! The time spent with family that day was just as beautiful as the coin that is now in my collection. If I ever have the opportunity to send any coins in for grading, this one will be one of the first to be sent off.
Being a veteran is like being a part of a â€śbrotherhoodâ€ť. I like many others will be celebrating my brothers in arms this Veterans Day and the saying that â€śif you love your freedom, thank a vetâ€ť is still true to this day. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Iâ€™ve ordered a couple of books that references the four different types of nickels and will soon be adding a new collection to my â€ścollectionsâ€ť page.
As always, enjoy the pictures, stay safe, HEALTHY, and coronavirus free! I also want to take this opportunity to thank all my friends on this website for the knowledge they impart with every day to further this hobby of kings called numismatics!

Congrats on the completion of the Peace Dollar Set. Whatâ€™s your next goal in terms of full sets?
Good blog and beautiful peace dollar .
I got two of them Charlie, and I love them. I hear the mint may continue the series next year. I do not think that is a good idea.
Great photos! Congratulations on a complete set! Love those Peace Dollars! ; )
A nice set to complete
Have a great Veterans Day Charlie. Thanks for all the years of service you gave. The 2021 peace Dollar is amazing. I got mine as well. I always wanted a high relief one and now I have it. The original 1921 high relief Peace dollars seem to have a very weak strike, especially in the hair. Not this baby. Well done. I miss going to family reunions. Thanks.
Beautiful peace dollar. Congratulations on having one. A great collection piece.
Great coin! The mintage was only 200,000. That's it for millions of collectors. I'm very happy your friend sent it wish I had a friend like that.. There are some friends who are friends on this site. The relationship with your family and Veterans day makes it special. Thanks for the pictures. I always enjoy reading your blogs. Glad your set is complete!! You did it!
