The Professional Coin Grading Service has created a list of the Top 100 Modern US Coins. The number one coin on that list is the legendary 1964 Peace Dollar struck at the Denver Mint. Rumors of this coin being in collectors hands have been around for years and PCGS is offering $10,000 just to be able to examine a genuine specimen.
