U.S. Coin Values: Peace Dollars.
About 1921-1935 Peace $1
The Peace dollar, designed by Anthony de Francisci, was minted from 1921 through 1935 and replaced the long-running Morgan dollar. While not nearly as popular as its famous predecessor, the Peace dollar maintains a sizable and loyal base of collectors who find the coin's beauty, relatively short production run, and few expensive key dates attractive attributes.
The scarcest regular-issue Peace dollar is the 1928, which serves as the series key. Meanwhile, the 1934-S is challenging in all grades and relatively rare in upper circulated and uncirculated condition. The 1921 is a scarce first-year coin and the only regular-strike issue in the series boasting a high-relief strike. Various accounts indicate some 35,000 high-relief 1922 Peace dollars were struck but virtually all melted after die breakage problems proved too daunting to overcome. One high-relief 1922 Peace dollar is known in VF, though this may actually be a circulated high-relief proof specimen, of which there are about 10 known specimens. All of these high-relief 1922 Peace dollars trade for high-five and low-six-figure sums.
The most common Peace dollars are circulated low-relief specimens from 1922 and all 1923, 1924, 1925, and 1926 issues. Later issues are better dates. All Peace dollars, including the more-common mid-1920s dates, are exceedingly scarce in grades of MS66 or MS67.

About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
