1971-S 40% Silver Eisenhower $1 Proof Coin in Original Packaging (Brown Box Ike)

Eisenhower Silver Dollars, also known as Ike Dollars, were minted by the United States Mint from 1971-1978. These were the first dollar coins released by the mint intended for circulation since the Peace Dollar had ceased production in 1935. This 1971 Eisenhower Proof Silver Dollar, the first year of the coin's release, consists of 40% silver. The Proof Eisenhower Dollars were minted in San Francisco and include an “S” mint mark. Your coin will arrive in the original brown box packaging. The brown boxes are why these coins are often referred to as 'Brown Ikes' in the collecting community.

Eisenhower Silver Dollar - One Great Coin, Two Great Designs!

The obverse of the coin honors American leader 5-Star General and President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Shown on the coin in side profile, the 34th President of the United States of America will forever be associated with his simple, yet effective, campaign slogan “I like Ike.” Fittingly, adding this beautiful coin to your collection will soon have you saying “I like Ike Dollars.” Obverse inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “1971.”

Perhaps even more endearing to the American public is the design on the reverse of the Eisenhower Silver Dollar. Reflecting the official insignia of Apollo 11, the reverse design honors the landing of this United States spacecraft on the moon – which marked the first ever landing of man on the surface of the moon. The design features an eagle hovering over the surface of the moon with an olive branch clasped in its talons. Planet Earth, turned so the United States faces the viewer, can be seen in distant space behind the eagle. The scene is encircled with thirteen stars. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”

Bring the 1971-S 40% Silver Eisenhower $1 Proof Coin home to your collection

With two iconic American images featured on the Eisenhower Silver Dollar, 5-Star General Eisenhower and the Apollo 11 insignia, this proof coin in original packaging belongs in every collector's collection. When you take the coin out from time-to-time and admire it, you may just have the famous quote from Neil Armstrong playing in your head - “The Eagle Has Landed.”
