2021 Peace dollar

koynekwestkoynekwest Posts: 10,048 ✭✭✭✭✭

I have heard elsewhere that the new Peace dollar commemorative will not be in high relief, as the original 1921 issue is. Does anyone know if this is the case? The answer to this will determine if I end up wanting one.

    The mint did say it would not be a true high relief but exactly how it will look is a bit uncertain. I suspect they will make it look more like the 1921 in design but not with the basined high relief look.

    "To re-create these designs for the 2021 coins, the Mint used historic assets such as coins, dies, and high resolution images to capture the artists’ original intent. However, the 2021 Peace Dollar isn’t struck in high relief like the original coin. The 1921 high relief design rose higher than the border, which makes the design elements susceptible to damage. The relief of the 2021 Peace and Morgan Dollars matches modern commemorative coin specifications."

    :( High relief would have been too much to ask for I guess.

    1921 peace reverse has 4 rays under “ONE”

    The depiction only has 3

    Batting 3 out of 4 ain't bad at all....................

    Well, in baseball it's not.

    Thanks for the answers, guys! I guess I'll be saving a little money.

    The renders certainly look high(enough) relief.
    This is the only one of the centennial releases that I really want.

    Collector, occasional seller

  • koynekwestkoynekwest Posts: 10,048 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Same here. I will look at one in person when that's possible and then buy one from the aftermarket if I like what I see and if the price isn't ridiculous.

    Apparently the 'high relief' illusion is for pictures only. The Mint again fails to satisfy the collector. If the Mint paid attention to the details collectors want satisfaction would follow; 200k will sellout, sadly, the Mint will think they were successful.

    I have not planned to get one of these.... will think about it. Got the CC privy Morgan... Happy with that. Cheers, RickO

    The collector in me is saying buy 1 and keep it. But the flipper is saying buy 10 flip 8 and keep 2 for free. I think I know what I’m going to do if I get in. 🤫
