The popular Eisenhower Silver Dollar series is a great entry point into U.S. Mint coins for first time coin collectors. Seasoned collectors will also seek out these coins to complete their U.S. Mint collection. These coins famously honor an American icon and one of America’s most iconic moments -- President Dwight D. Eisenhower and the first landing of man on the moon. 

These coins were struck coins from 1971-1974 and feature the special Eagle reverse that is also an adaptation of the official Apollo 11 insignia. After 1971, the dies were modified several times to improve the relief made on the Earth above the eagle, making it more clearly defined. Each coin is sealed in the original U.S. Mint packaging.

This proof quality 1971 Eisenhower Dollar is struck in 40% silver at the San Francisco Mint. These proof quality coins are also know as a “Brown Ikes” because of the special brown U.S. Mint box they’re packaged in.
