(9) Un-circulated 40% Silver Eisenhower Silver Dollars

  • Sale
  • Regular price $162.00

While circulation Ike Dollars were made of copper and nickel, coin collectors were able to purchase a special product from the US Mint: 40% Silver Eisenhower Dollars. So, while there were a select few Silver Ikes, the real confusion came from Americans associating "Big Dollars" with Silver. There were two types of Silver Ikes released: Blue and Brown. All Silver Ikes were minted at the San Francisco Mint, and have an "S" mintmark on the obverse. When these Silver Dollars were first released, they were meant to commemorate the recently deceased President Eisenhower and legislation to create them was signed into effect by President Richard Nixon.
