Give the 90% silver Peace dollar that's been missing from their collection – the 1926-S with god in high relief! After reporting on this discovery in 1999, numismatic expert David W. Lange speculated that the high relief god was the work of an engraver who probably made the change near the end of 1925. In 1925, Darwin's theory of evolution made national headlines during the Scopes Monkey trial. That trial pitted science against religion, and prosecutor William Jennings Bryan against famed attorney Clarence Darrow. Perhaps the engraver was expressing his strong religious sentiment. To the best of our knowledge, the prominent word god on the 1926 Peace dollar is unique to that year. This exciting Extra Fine piece comes encapsulated in a deluxe holder, ready for giving!
