Terminology... most of which makes little sense, but it does help discussions.

That is called a " Peace dollar" - it was created in 1921 to celebrate the end of war (WWI - obviously not called that before WWII - was the war to end all wars).

Other oddities...

Buffalo nickels - yeah, it's a bison.

Mercury dime - The FTD icon (very similar) was Mercury. The correct name of the dime is "Winged Head of Liberty" (like that just rolls of the tongue).

Lincoln Penny - the Penny is a British Commonwealth unit. The US unit is the cent (likely from percentum or 1/100th) - but even the US Mint has given up on that one.

Nickel - it's a 5 cent piece. The current compostion is actually the third coin with a nickel alloy that was - in it's time - called a nickel. The Flying Eagle/Indiian Head Cents (first composition), the Three Cent Nickel (3CN) and finally the 5 cent piece.

Seated Liberty, Standing Liberty, Walking Liberty - as if those three coins are the only portrayal of Liberty on US coinage.


There are many others
