# 708 - Eisenhower Dollars - Part 3

in hive-167922 •  6 months ago 

We will continue today a small series showing the Proof Eisenhower Dollars.

The info below comes from https://eisenhowerdollarguide.com/

The first legislation to create a new dollar coin was introduced in October 1969. The legislation sought to create a circulating dollar coin which would commemorate Dwight D. Eisenhower who had died earlier that year and the Apollo 11 space flight, which marked man’s first steps on the moon. A modified bill was eventually passed on December 31, 1970.

The reverse of the coin was based on the mission insignia from the Apollo 11 space flight. This was deemed particularly appropriate by Congress since the space program began under Eisenhower’s administration.

Eisenhower Dollars were struck for circulation using the copper-nickel clad composition, which was also used for circulating dimes, quarters, and half dollars. The composition consisted of an outer layer of 75% copper and 25% nickel, bonded to a core of pure copper. The resulting net composition was 91.67% copper and 8.33% nickel.

Eisenhower Silver Dollars were struck for collectors. These coins had an outer layer of 80% silver and 20% copper and an inner layer of 40% silver and 60% copper. The resulting net composition was 40% silver and 60% copper, with silver content of 0.3161 troy ounces.

The Eisenhower Dollar was issued from 1971 to 1978.

The Proof 1973 Silver Eisenhower Dollar had a mintage of 1,013,646 units in San Francisco.

From 2,504 1973 Silver Eisenhower Dollars, NGC graded 1,300 as PF-69 UC, with zero above.

I bought this coin in 2014 for $61.95 and today's price is around $90.00.

The Chief Engraver for the United States Mint Frank Gasparro designed both the obverse and the reverse of the coin.

The obverse bore a profile bust of Eisenhower.

The reverse design featured a bald eagle landing on the surface of the moon, carrying an olive branch, with the Earth visible in the background from space.

That is a REALLY shiny Ike.
I now regret having put those old Ike dollars in my mouth when I was a little pirate.

Do not regret it, their value didn't go down, unless they were brand new, but I don't believe your father would let you play with uncirculated coins.

I really like the reverse of that coin now that I am looking at it with a critical eye. Very nice Ron.

The eagle has landed.

I think that I will show a few of the current circulating US dollars for Fiesta Tuesday, because I have some in my purse right now, hehehe!
Have a great day, my friend. Take care. 🥰🌺🤙

Good idea! I carry a Sacagawea Dollar in my coin purse since I received it in 2000. Take care!

A very nice Proof @ronaldoavelino ...top quality my friend!!!
Let me know what you think of the Brave Browser....I figured out how to link my Ledger Nano S and BAT can be withdrawn to your Ledger ( MEW ) wallet with no fees!
Have a good evening my friend!!!

I have only a few hours of experience but everything is running smoothly. As I don't have any crypto but steem, I have no ledger. Must I verify my wallet?

Posted via Steemleo

I believe you do, for the next payout to be deposited. I held off, and when I verified my wallet and the Mrs wallet the Monthly deposit went through for both of us.
If this helps drop the price of the 2020 SSG round I think it's worth it for this alone!
You can set how many ads you see in settings...
Have a good day my friend!!!😀
