Peace dollars, criteria for color premium?

What are the criteria for Peace dollars to be worth more due to attractive colors?

I got this one back from a different grading company with attractive color:

    Finding someone with money to burn that thinks toned Peace Dollars are worth a big premium ... but ... only if it has the "look" they like.

    There are no hard and fast "criteria". It's worth what you can sell it for. When it comes to selling toners, it's entirely dependent on the quality of the photographs.

    Can we get some pics that show the toning?

    Depends on how much premium the color is ascribed to the Peace dollar by the seller and buyer.

    Some Peace dollars tone a khaki-green color that I don't find attractive and wouldn't pay a premium for.

    Most Peace dollars do not tone anywhere close to what Morgan dollars do, so I give them a little latitude in their color progression and intensity.


    Always looking for attractive rim toned Morgan and Peace dollars in PCGS or (older) ANA/ANACS holders!

    The way I’d think about it is this: ugly color doesn’t command a premium, regardless of how uncommon color is within a given series. Attractive color will likely command more of a premium for a series where it’s not common (peace dollars) versus a series where it’s more common (such as Morgans). And as the color gets more impressive, it’s that much less common, so the premium rises well past what you’d pay for a series where it’s more common.

    Both of these would carry a premium as Morgan dollars (the 1921 not much, though as a peace dollar it’s a date uncommon with color in a series not known for color), but for peace dollars, they’re really impressive coins.

    The first criteria for a strong premium is to get the colorful coin into a PCGS, NGC or CACG holder.

    I tried one time with this one, it was bodybagged. :'(

    What do you think of this one, not mine. Should it command a large premium?

    The common certified Peace dollars, many are lustrous and white carry little in the way of a premium, there are so many of them. Those that have achieved attractive and unique toning are worth good money. How much? Only the collector's demand and the marketplace can determine that, and the sharp distinction between real and artificial toning.

    I almost like it, based on the photos. How does the light reflect off the metal underneath the color?

    My Peace dollar has blazing luster under the toning. Viewed in hand under good lighting the coin looks great.

    I personally don’t collect dollar coins, but whenever I see a nicely toned Peace dollar at a coin show, I’ll usually buy it if the price is reasonable, and I’ll then flip the coin on eBay. I’m looking for colorful rim toning, or coins having an arc of color, esp on the obverse. I’ve noticed they bring strong money on The Bay. There are people looking for nicely toned Peace dollars, and many will overpay for them.

    Then I like it. The premium i'd pay honestly would depend on my mood if i saw it for sale.
