1922 High Relief Peace Silver Dollar
One extremely rare and valuable variety is the 1922 High Relief Peace Dollar. Most 1922 Peace dollars are Normal Relief. So their features are not as sharp and they don't stand out as much. In the previous year - All 1921 Peace Dollars were High Relief. The US Mint found that this original high relief design produced a higher quality and more beautiful coin but it caused more wear and tear on the dies that produce the coins - which had to be replaced often. So early in 1922: The US Mint decided it was more practical to produce dies that resulted in a coin design with lower relief and lower quality for general circulation.

The US Mint originally produced 35401 of these 1922 High Relief coins (mostly non-proof business strikes intended for general circulation) before going to a Normal relief design. Nearly all of these high relief coins were melted down a short time later by the US Mint. Only about 10 to 12 High Relief 1922 Proof (Matte Proof) Peace Dollars are estimated to exist. One stray non-proof business strike coin also exists!

Depicted above is a 1922 High Relief Matte Proof Peace Dollar while the image below depicts a 1922 Normal Relief Matte Proof Peace Dollar. Both varieties are exceptionally valuable - but the High Relief version is the crown jewel (Sources of example images are courtesy of Heritage Auction Galleries):

1922 Low Relief Matte Proof Peace Dollar

It is quite easy to identify the differences between the high relief and low relief coins. Both the obverse (front) and reverse (back) of the coin have differences. On the obverse of the coin: The numbers in the date and letters appear thicker on the high relief variety - even the spikes coming off the liberty crown are noticeably thicker. Although on the normal relief variety the spikes are longer and thinner with one small extra spike between the two left-most spikes. These features are depicted by the arrows in the example image below (Notice how much longer and thinner the spikes are near the letter "E" in the word "LIBERTY" on the Normal Relief variety vs the shorter spikes on the High Relief variety):

On the reverse of the coin: The high relief version also features thicker letters. The letters are much clearer on the high relief variety whereas the letters on the reverse lower relief coin appear blurry (especially in the word "PEACE" at the base of the coin). The portrait of the eagle and the rays are also vastly more detailed than the lower relief variety. The rays are also longer on the high relief version and there are two extra rays near the rock where the eagle is perched (depicted by the arrows). Two rays clearly appear within the middle of the letter "O" in the word "DOLLAR" on the high relief version - whereas on the low relief variety there is only one ray "clearly" seen through the middle of the "O". The differences are depicted below in the example comparison image of the reverse of the coins:

1922 Peace Dollar flip-over double strike, obverse. Image courtesy Mike Byers, Mint Error News

United States 1922 Peace Dollar Flip-Over Double Strike in Collar, PCGS AU58

By Mike Byers for Mint Error News ……

Major mint errors in the U.S. Peace Dollar series are very rare. There are only a few known off-centers, broad strikes and double strikes. Thus, mint errors are many times rarer than Morgan Dollar mint errors. This is an unbelievable and unique Peace Dollar that was double struck. It is a “flip-over”, since the struck coin flipped over but remained in the collar. It was subsequently struck again and rotated 270 degrees between the strikes.

There are a few double struck Peace Dollar known but the second strikes are 80% to 95% off-center and several have uniface reverses.

This is the only known flip-over double struck Peace Dollar. It was authenticated and certified AU 58 by PCGS. It is unique since it is double struck in the collar and is also a flip-over.

There is considerable detail remaining from the first strike on both sides – especially on the reverse, which shows the entire portrait, eyes, nose, mouth, lips and chin from the first strike that was struck by the obverse die. The obverse also shows detail of the Eagle’s wings and the rays of the sun from the first strike which was struck by the reverse die.

This is truly a unique and dramatic major mint error in the Peace Dollar series.

Notice the considerable detail of the portrait and face from the first strike:

    The Most Valuable Peace Silver Dollars

    1921 (Philadelphia Mint)

    To comply with the Pittman Act of 1918, the U.S. Treasury Department authorized the striking of millions of silver dollars in 1921 using the old Morgan Dollar design. Artists at the United States Mint needed additional time to finish the design of the new Peace silver dollar. Sculptor Anthony de Francisci created the Peace silver dollar design in high relief.

    The new design caused the highest points of the design on the coin to be weakly struck and lacking in detail. Between the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mint, a total of over 68 million Morgan silver dollars were struck in 1921 while only slightly more than one million Peace silver dollars were made. In 1922, de Francisci lowered the relief to correct the problems with striking the coins properly. Therefore, the 1921 Peace silver dollar is a one-year design type coin.

    Also, proximately 35,000 high relief 1922 peace dollars were also minted. However, because the coins were difficult to make with their high relief, production quickly halted. A few of these coins were sent to mint headquarters in Washington DC. The rest of them were supposedly destroyed. However, a few of them slipped out into general circulation. Be on the lookout for these highly valuable high-relief peace dollars.

    Rare Peace Silver Dollar Mint Error

    1922 Double Struck in Collar with 90-Degree Rotation Between Strikes

    1922 Peace Silver Dollar--Double Struck in Collar, Second Strike Rotated 90 Degrees--MS-64 (PCGS). Gold Shield Holder.

    This interesting and rare coin will appeal to advanced Peace dollar collectors and Mint error specialists alike. Bold remnants of the first impression are most readily evident at the left and right obverse borders, on Liberty's neck, and on the reverse at the eagle's tail and legs. The second strike, which is rotated 90 degrees clockwise relative to the first impression, displays razor sharp definition throughout the design. The surfaces are frosty and untoned apart from wisps of reddish-gold peripheral toning. This is an impressive Peace dollar will be just right for an advanced collection. This error was created when a properly struck coin failed to eject, the planchet instead remaining in the press, yet rotating 90 degrees before being struck a second time. Writing about a different double struck error on a 1923 Peace dollar in 100 Greatest U.S. Error Coins (2010), Nicholas P. Brown, David J. Camire and Fred Weinberg state: "There are many double-struck coins, but not in the Peace dollar series; these are extremely rare." Indeed, this is one of our few offerings of a major Mint error of any kind on a silver dollar of this type. A find that is worthy of the strongest bids.

    They were about a centimeter. Lord, I thought, where are they still growing. - Well, what - Natalya asked - will we find out. I mumbled something, for the reason that I just stared blankly at my chest. Natalya took the conversation into her own hands and led me to the sofa.

    Now discussing:

    She only vaguely remembers that all three were inside at the same time and then her ass was stretched quite a lot. The couple spent some time at the club and returned home only in the morning. For two days they came to their senses.
