About Uncirculated silver dollars are just a shade below mint-state quality. They boast original mint luster, but reveal just a trace of wear at the highest points of the design. In 1926 the Denver Mint issued only 2.3 million Peace dollars for circulation. That was less than 5% of the peak 1922 Philadelphia mintage. Today its estimated that as few as 75,000 may survive in AU quality or higher grades.
