Question about mintage of the IKE 1972 type 1,2,3 dollars.
From what I have found 75,890,000 1972's were minted. Does anybody know the breakdown between the 3 types?


You would think that current pricing at least gives you an indication of mintage and/or survival rates.
For instance, considering that the Type II is about an order of magnitude more expensive than either Type I or III, I would guess the Type II was minted/survived about 5-10x less.

Edit to add: PCGS shows estimated survival rates of the different types.

1) 35,000,000 https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...1-type/87409
2) 500,000 https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...type-2/97409
3) 35,800,000 https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...-type-3/7409

You cannot always directly correlate price to survival rates though.

That's true, but it does give some direction.

Two IKEs I've had in storage for about 40 years. One got scorched at some time (before I obtained it), the other is for comparison. Both were in the same bag (bank bag).

It sort-of looks like tarnished silver but it is not.

I wonder how many Ikes (or Morgans, or Peace dollars for that matter) lie at the bottom of various waterways across the US--where someone attempted to skip the coin from one bank to the other, only to come up short.

Burnished maybe? Not many graded as such, but if it came from a bag 40 years ago, you have a shot at it.

I'm not familiar with that attribution for an IKE but I'll let the next owner worry about it I guess. In the meantime, I'll just continue to let it live in my collection as an interestingly colored coin.
