Best Answer

The US didn't mint any circulating 1-dollar coins during that period. The only ones ever struck were a trial run of about 316,000 new Peace dollars made in 1964. They were struck in the same 90% silver alloy used previously, but were never released. All were supposedly melted when the price of silver increased and the coins became worth more than a dollar.
