  • Description:

    For novice collectors, the Eisenhower dollar series is a great one to start. Due to its large mintages, the Eisenhower dollar series is readily available in all dates and mint-marks, and the price is always relatively low. The US Mint experiences a setback in 1965, when the price of silver greatly increased. Instead of using 90% silver to produce their coins, the US Mint was required to use only 40% silver on collectible coins only. The rest of the US currency would be made out of a copper-nickel alloy that wouldn't contain any silver. When the Eisenhower dollar was first conceived, after the president and general passed in 1969, its prediction was to be a very popular and collectible series. Collectors are still waiting on that prediction to come to realization. The 1976-S Silver Proof Eisenhower is among the special group, that contains 40% silver. The coin shimmers with a flawless mirrored finish, susceptible to unwanted fingerprints.
