Peace Dollar Specifications

1923 Peace Dollar

The Peace Dollar was produced from 1921 to 1928 and then from 1934 to 1935. During the course of the series, coins were struck for circulation at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mint facilities. For the first two years of the series, a small number of proof coins were struck at Philadelphia.

Specifications for the series remained identical to the prior Morgan Dollars. Each coin has a composition of 90% silver and 10% copper. The net weight of pure silver is 0.77344 troy ounces. Circulated examples of common dates of the series are often bought and sold on the basis of the value of the silver content.

Peace Dollars have a standard weight of 26.73 grams and diameter of 38.1 mm. The edge of each coin is reeded.

The mint mark location for coins struck at Denver and San Francisco is on the reverse of the coin near the eagle's tail feathers. Coins struck at Philadelphia do not contain a mint mark.
