Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The mintage for the 1922 issue soared above the levels of 1921 and many, many more have survived. The date is quite common in all grades from MS 60 to MS 64. Over 65,000 pieces of the 1922 Double Eagle have been certified. The strike for the issue is somewhat shallow and bag marks are a persistent problem for the issue. They must have been stored and handled quite roughly over the years. Gem examples are rare and not easily found. Very few have been graded as MS 66 and none as MS 67. An NGC MS 66 coin sold for $14,375 in 2009.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
