The 1927-D Peace Dollar had a mintage of 1,268,900 pieces, representing the highest silver dollar production among the three producing mints for the year. The issue is typically well produced although circulation took a heavy toll, making higher grade mint state examples in the distinct minority.
Although the issue does not receive as much attention as some of the conditionally challenging San Francisco issues, dedicated collectors of the series recognize the issue as a semi key date and particularly elusive at the gem level or higher.
The major grading services show approximately 250 pieces graded at the MS65 level, about a dozen pieces graded MS66, and no pieces certified finer. Prices realized for the PCGS certified MS66 pieces have exceeded $40,000.
