The Bicentennial Eisenhower Dollar was released in 1975 and 1976, along with similarly themed bicentennial quarters and half dollars. Two versions of the Eisenhower Dollar were issued, one with a sans-serif lettering and the other with a serif font. The US Mint issued single versions of the coins along with special 3-coin proof sets. Collectors continue to seek these coins out, both for their beauty and as token reminders of America’s iconic past.
President Eisenhower is shown on the obverse field of 1976 Prism Hologram Eisenhower Dollars. Rather than updating the obverse for the bicentennial release, the Mint stuck with the famous design already in use by Chief Engraver Frank Gasparro. It is a simple yet refined bust of Eisenhower in left-profile relief. There are inscriptions that read Liberty, In God We Trust, and 1776-1976.
The Liberty Bell against the backdrop of a full moon is depicted on the reverse of Bicentennial Prism Hologram Eisenhower Dollars. This iconic image is embellished with a permanent hologram, which helps to highlight the beauty of Dennis Williams’ original artwork. His design was chosen out of hundreds of submissions, which is even more remarkable considering he was only 21 and in college at the time. Reverse inscriptions read United States of America, E Pluribus Unum, One Dollar.
