  • Description:

    After successfully defeating Nazism in Europe, Eisenhower did not stop serving his country. He continued to serve as Army Chief of Staff under President Truman and as Supreme Commander of NATO up until his own presidency. As president, Eisenhower top priority was to stem the spread of global communism. He did this by continuing to recognize Taiwan as China, threaten nuclear bombs in Korea, and financially support the new country of South Vietnam, not to mention supporting a military coup in Iran which would have far reaching consequences into the future of the region. Despite this, he quietly opposed Senator Joseph McCarthy’s hunt for communists but did largely ignore it. He later signed the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and sent federal troops to protect integrated schools.

    The obverse of the 1990 Uncirculated Eisenhower Centennial Commemorative Silver coin shows two profiles of the late president. In the background, the leftward facing profile is that of the Five Star General Eisenhower. This is denoted by his military cap with a five star insignia. In the foreground is a rightward facing President Eisenhower. The date at the bottom of the coin is “1890 1990” The obverse of the coin is veteran US Mint engraver sculptor John Mercanti. The reverse of the coin shows Eisenhower’s home in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The reverse of the coin was designed by Marcel Jovine.

    The 1990 Uncirculated Eisenhower Centennial Commemorative Silver dollar has a mintage of 241,669 coins. This is a small fraction of the coins minted for the proof issue. The coin was designed to commemorate the Five Star General’s one hundredth birthday.
