Peace Dollar Value Trends

This is the first page of Coin Value Tables for US Peace Dollars. The Tables illustrate Peace Dollar prices and their trends since 1950 for all coins of the series.

The objective is to show collectors the Peace Dollars which have displayed the strongest price advancements over time. The Tables also estimate current values for any Peace Dollar coin.

The links directly below are to help you quickly locate Peace Dollar prices for specific dates of interest. There is one table for each and every date, covering a range of grades.

The Peace Dollar key dates are the 1921 and 1928. As the Tables demonstrate, these dates increase more steadily in value than common dates.

This beautiful coin has long been widely acclaimed as one of the greatest artistic successes in all of American numismatics, which in large part, explains their popularity with today's collectors. Don't think of the Peace Dollar merely as some kind of investment tool, because you'll cheat yourself out of the joy of owning one. A good place to learn about the coin and its origin is found at the US Peace Dollar introductory page.

Other online US coin value trend reports can be found on the Coin Value Tables main page. These other trend reports can also be accessed by clicking "Get Historic US Coin Values", located in the upper right hand corner of this page.

In the 1950s, grading practices were radically different from what we have today. A coin's condition was described using simple adjectives such as "Very Good" or "Uncirculated". Accordingly, numismatic references of those times conformed to the same set of adjectives to approximate retail coin values. Varying distinctions of Uncirculated (today's equivalent of MS-60, MS-61, etc) and Proof were recognized in some advertisements and auction bills by employing modifying descriptors such as "Brilliant Uncirculated" or "Choice Proof", for example. However, with no clear point of reference or consistency on how the modifying descriptors were invoked, most publishers resorted to listing values for only one "Uncirculated" grade and one "Proof" grade.

The 70-point numeric system (G-4, VG-8, etc.) in widespread use today was popularized by the American Numismatic Association in the late 1970s, an era when coin values were escalating dramatically, most notably for high quality specimens. Vague descriptors such as "Choice" and "Brilliant" were replaced by the more precise numerically determined grades. Thus, finely differentiated grades like MS-60, MS-63, and MS-65 eventually became commonplace, and by the late 1980s, the practice of assigning a numerical grade to indicate quality was universal (this does not imply the 70-point system eliminated grading inconsistencies, but it did help to stabilize the coin collecting hobby).

In February 1986, the ANA changed its grading interpretations to match the tightening standards demanded by the marketplace. This meant that many coins correctly graded as MS-65 in the early 1980s became MS-63 or less, so as to be consistent with the newly revised interpretation. Conversely, a coin graded after 1986 as MS-63 was about equal in quality to an MS-65 before 1986. Thus, the Mint State prices published in numismatic periodicals prior to 1986 are not directly comparable to those published later. The Coin Value Tables of this website relied heavily on periodicals from before 1986, but we did not attempt to compensate for the revised grading standards of 1986; we reported what we found. One must take this into account when studying trends for an MS-65 coin from, say, 1980 to the present. On the other hand, because of the dearth of Mint State price estimates published prior to 1986, more than 98% of the Coin Value Table data is not affected by anything mentioned in this paragraph!

The Coin Value Tables™ trend data for Peace dollars reflect the historic availability of numeric grades to describe coins. For the 1950-1985 rows, the values in the "F-12" column correspond to the "Fine" listing of those years, "VF-20" corresponds to "Very Fine", and so on. The "MS-60" column records the "Uncirculated" value reported during those same decades. Similarly, "PF-65" corresponds to simple "Proof" figures. Starting in the 1980 row, coin values strictly correspond to numeric grades grades. Furthermore, "Uncirculated" grades are broken down with greater specificity beginning in 1980, because by then, this type of value data for Peace dollars was becoming more readily available. Today, many gradations between 60 and 70 are routinely reported on.

For those interested, we have a coin grading section with more details on the evolution of grading coins.
