  • Description:

    Due to an extreme increase in silver bullion prices, in 1965, the US Mint was required to alter the metals that went into their coins. Instead of 90% silver, all clad coins were given a copper-nickel clad combination and only collectible coins contained 40% silver. In 1969, Eisenhower passed just in time for a new dollar to be minted. Without much disagreement, the general and late president became the face of the new dollar. The 1971-S Eisenhower was minted at the San Francisco Mint, the mecca of perfectly struck coins. Proudly wearing the "S" mint-mark, the 1971-S Eisenhower is also one of the few dollars that contains 40% silver. Many collectors enjoy gathering the Eisenhower dollars for a collection, since they are usually affordable and easily accessible.
