Full Description

Circulated Eisenhower dollars are 40% Silver U.S. Coinage with low premiums. Minted from 1971 to 1978, these silver clad one-dollar coins are made of 40% silver and 60% copper. However, in 1975 no dollars were minted, and in1976, the reverse design of the $1 coin was changed for the bicentennial.

Because Eisenhower Dollars were minted for only a few years, they have significant value as a collector coin. Choose these inexpensive silver clad coins to increase your holdings of precious metals or add to your collection of U.S. coins.

Obverse

The obverse design is an effigy of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, created by U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Frank Gasparro. Gasparro had drawn his first sketch of Eisenhower during a parade celebrating the World War II Allied victory in 1945. The engraver used this sketch as a basis for the design of the Eisenhower Dollar, although he was required to use the same layout for the obverse as was used for the Washington quarter.

Reverse

Although Gasparro originally designed a reverse bearing a heraldic eagle, the reverse that was used was inspired by the Apollo 11 mission insignia. As in the insignia of the moon mission, an eagle swoops down to the surface of the moon, holding an olive branch in its talons. Earth is shown to the upper right of the eagle, and 13 stars make a half circle above the moon’s surface. The words "United States of America" are featured above the eagle, and the denomination of One Dollar is featured below.
