History, Information, and Value of 1922-S Peace Dollar
Value of 1922 San Francisco Mint Peace Silver Dollar
To extend the life of the Peace dollar dies at the San Francisco Mint this year, management widened the space between the dies in the coining presses resulting in most coins being weakly struck. Generally, the quality of 1922-S Peace Dollars is low and finding one in MS-65 with a good strike, minimal marks, and strong luster can be difficult. And when one is found, the price is high. Seek out a coin in MS-64 with a strong strike. Bagmarks are also common with this issue.
Circulated 1922-S Silver Dollars Trade For Silver: Like virtually all Peace dollars, there is not significant premium for circulated 1922-S silver dollars beyond their value based on the current price of silver.
Eye Appeal And Strike Help Sell: This 1922 San Francisco Mint one silver dollar issue, the first of the design type, is available in grades of MS-60 up to an occasional MS-66 if one so desires.
