History, Information, and Value of 1922-D Peace Dollar
Value of 1922 Denver Mint Peace Silver Dollar
The Denver Mint’s excellent facilities and its close proximity to newly mined silver contributed to the production of well-struck 1922-D Peace silver dollars of exceptional quality. The Mint’s technique utilized a higher striking pressure that led to a short die life and cracked dies, in some cases, resulting in concentric lines or marks on the obverse. However, die crack impressions should not deter you from obtaining one if desired. Some collectors seek these examples out, while others consider the marked coins as flawed and avoid them. Numerous coins are available that are very well struck and highly detailed. Bags of 1,000 Uncirculated 1922-D Peace dollars were released in the 1940s and early 1950s, with a hoard of 50 bags marketed in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The hoarded coins contain examples that are bagmarked but are well struck. That quantity alone gives you a good idea of just how many 1922-D $1 silver coins are out there.
Circulated 1922-D Silver Dollars Are Just Silver: Readily available in EF and AU though examples in those grades often sell for bullion value in today’s marketplace. Not many collectors care to own a circulated 1922-D Peace dollar.
Thanks To Hoards, Even MS 1922-D Peace Dollars Are Available Cheaply: This prolific date is available in MS-60 and finer grades, though most collectors consider the MS-60 through MS-62 pieces somewhat on a par with circulated examples of the date. Anyone can afford a MS-63 or 64 specimen, and most can afford MS-65 or even MS-66 for this issue. Look for great luster and a bold strike and be ready to buy an example when you find one with these attributes.
The obverse text on the Peace Dollar reads “Liberty; In God We Trvst (Trust); 1922.” The reverse text on the silver dollar reads “United States of America; E Pluribus Unum; One Dollar; Peace; D.” The obverse of the coin has a bust of a female facing the left with a pointed crown and flowing hair.
