In 1964, the Denver Mint struck 316,076 Peace Dollars but, before they were released into circulation, all of the coins were destroyed.  A few may have been purchased or "taken" by Mint employees and rumors persist of this coin's existence.  However, for fear of confiscation by Treasury officials, none have yet appeared on the market.  Were it legal to own, the 1964-D Peace Dollar would become one of the most valuable of all United States coins.
