Just over 1.7 million Peace dollars were struck in San Francisco in 1924. The hype around the new silver dollar design had quickly died, and millions of Peace dollars were already languishing in Treasury vaults. The only reason to keep making them was to turn the silver bullion the government was forced to buy under the Pittman Act into money, so that it could back paper silver certificates.
Lack of demand for Peace dollars was such that Denver did not strike any at all in 1924 and 1925.
The Value of a 1924-S Peace Dollar
The usual poor strike combined with a small-ish mintage means that high grade 1924-S Peace dollars are hard to find. The price reflects this, with a MS65 retailing for ten times a MS63.
