Item Number: mm_0100_1964d_A
Premium quality, individually-handled, consistent with MS-68+ grade. Some evidence of underlying host coin design will likely show somewhere, such as forehead, front of neck, back of neck, and/or Eagle's shoulder. Housed in a non-PVC "flip" holder with certificate indicating "High-Luster Finish". Final mintage (of all issues combined) will be 1,964.

The 1964-D Peace silver dollar is one of the most enigmatic coins in history. On August 3 1964 legislation was enacted authorizing 45 million new silver dollars to be coined. In May 1965 the White House finally ordered some to be produced and the Denver Mint soon minted 316,076 of the coins which carried a 1964 date and a design identical to the Peace silver dollar last minted from 1921-1935. Shortly after the first mintage, an order went out to destroy them. The Treasury Department claims every one was accounted for and melted. None have publicly surfaced in the 45 years since. If an original 1964 Peace silver dollar were to turn up, it would be subject to immediate confiscation since it would be assumed to be stolen government property.

Now available is this modern over-strike, the most exacting and faithful rendition available. Holding one in hand gives the viewer a true sense of what it would be like to own an original (had any actually been issued). And since these are over-struck on genuine coins, they have the correct weight (no metal is added or removed), correct metallic content, and correct diameter and edge type. All the over-strikes are privately and painstakingly performed using a surplus Denver Mint coin press.

NOTE: Defacing of US coins is legal so long as the defacement isn't for fraudulent purposes.

By purchasing one or more of these, the buyer agrees to provide full disclosure of their origin when reselling them. Failure to provide potential buyers with complete and accurate information when offering these could result in criminal and/or civil fraud charges. In other words, don't try to sell to unaware buyers as original coins of this date.

Since these are over-struck on existing coins, there may be faint evidence of the original coin design showing since the over-strike is usually not perfectly aligned with the original strike.

Do not attempt to use these as legal tender. This product is NOT endorsed or approved by the US Mint, US Treasury, or US Government.

If a 64 Peace Dollar really did leave the US Mint it would probably not look as fantastic as this piece.

I ordered my "fantasy" piece over the Thanksgiving weekend and received it on Dec 2. I am blown away by the superior quality of the piece. Mr. Carr is an artist of the highest caliber. If I couldn't own the real thing, then this is the absolute best alternative. Well done. Mr. Carr !!!
