The Eisenhower Silver Eagle Dollar is a vintage American coin minted from 1971 to 1978. Today, they are seldom seen in circulation but are cherished by coin collectors and enthusiasts of American history alike. Offered here is a pleasant example of the 40% silver variety originally issued for collectors that have been hand-selected by professional numismatists after screening thousands of coins for quality and eye-appeal. Each Eisenhower dollar is housed in an airtight capsule and presented in a plush-lined box with a display easel, magnetic lid, and certificate of authenticity. The coin is unconditionally guaranteed to be genuine, dated between 1971 and 1974, and will match the exceptional mint-state quality of the one shown. If you are interested in building a collection, consider adding other great selections from the Icons of American Coinage Series to compliment your purchase.

HISTORY OF THE EISENHOWER DOLLAR

The Eisenhower dollar was produced from 1971 to 1978 and was the first dollar coin issued since the Peace dollar ended in 1935. In October of 1969, a bill was introduced calling for a circulating commemorative dollar to honor President Eisenhower and the Apollo XI space flight. Due to rising bullion prices, silver had been eliminated from the dime and quarter in 1965, and reduced to 40% in the half dollar, with plans to remove silver from all circulating coins in 1971. The Eisenhower dollar was struck in both copper-nickel for circulation and 40% silver as a collectible. The design features a left-facing profile of the late president on the obverse and an American eagle descending onto the moon on the reverse. The distant Earth is visible in the sky above. Although the silver pieces sold well and were coveted by collectors, the new copper-nickel dollars failed to circulate extensively, and the series was short-lived. Congress replaced the Eisenhower dollar with the smaller-sized Susan B. Anthony dollar in 1979, which also failed to circulate. The Eisenhower dollar would ultimately go down in history as the last large-sized dollar coin issued for circulation in the United States, marking the end of a two-century-old tradition.
