Product Description

The 1922-D Peace Dollar was originally designed by an Italian immigrant named Anthony D. Francisci. He was chosen to design the Peace Dollar after winning a competition hosted by the United States Commission for Fine Arts. His design for the Peace Dollar featured a stunning lady liberty on the obverse of the coin. On top of lady liberty's head was a crown that featured rays beaming off of it. The reverse of the coin featured a heraldic looking eagle standing fiercely. Originally the Peace Dollar was designed as high relief in 1921, however that quickly changed just after one year and was switched to a low relief. The U.S. Mint did this because the Peace Silver Dollars were not stacking properly at the banks. Of record, the 1921 Peace Dollar was the only high relief ever made throughout the series.

The 1922-D Peace Dollar had a total mintage of 15,063,000 coins. Although it is not super rare, it is much more uncommon than say a 1922-P or 1923-P Peace Dollar. As a result, a collector can buy the 1922-D Peace Dollar for a reasonable price. Some of the more rare dates in the Peace Dollar series come later on, more towards the end of the series.

Each Peace Dollar was composed of 90% silver and 10% copper. In total, each Peace Dollar has .7734 ounces of pure silver. Collectors typically collect the 1922-D Peace Dollar individually, either certified by PCGS or NGC, or in complete date/year albums. A 1922-D Peace Dollar can range in value in brilliant uncirculated condition depending on just how high of quality the specimen is. Prices at todays silver prices typically range from $80 upwards of thousand for super high end mint state quality coins.
