President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the 34th man to hold the office as the Commander-in-Chief of the United States, but also led an amazing life in and out of office. Just months after his death in 1969, the United States Mint issued new coinage featuring his bust on the obverse side on the first silver dollar issued in the US since 1935. Today, 40% Silver Eisenhower Dollar Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Arrives inside of varied packaging in BU or Proof Condition (Our Choice)!
  • Available from 1971 to 1976!
  • Consists of .3161 Troy ounces of actual silver content.
  • The face value of $1 (USD) is fully backed by the US government.
  • On the obverse side is a bust of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
  • The reverse of the coins includes a design of the bald eagle based upon the Apollo 11 mission to space.
  • Both designs from Frank Gasparro.

In 1969, the United States Mint was considering the reintroduction of silver dollar coins for the first time since the Peace Silver Dollar was halted in 1935. The rising prices of silver bullion in the 1960s led the US Mint to end the production of silver coins with previous 90% silver content. There was talk of making the new Silver Eisenhower Dollar Coins available with 40% silver, but it was relegated to a smaller collectible issue of the coin.

All of the 40% silver Eisenhower Dollar Coins in this product listing come from that collectible coining of the Eisenhower design. The US Mint concluded it was best to use a copper-nickel clad combination for circulation silver dollars with Eisenhower’s bust and limit the issuance of 40% silver coins to collectible Eisenhower Silver Dollars. Eisenhower Dollars with 40% silver were only issued from 1971 to 1976. The bald eagle design featured on BU and Proof coins issued from 1971 to 1974, and the Bicentennial reverse was featured on 40% silver coins in 1975 and 1976.

As President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower is remembered for presiding over one of the most robust periods of economic growth in American history. His administration spearheaded the Interstate Highway System, promoted science education through the National Defense Education Act, established NASA to promote American space exploration, and signed the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1957 while sending federal troops to forcefully integrate schools in Little Rock, Arkansas.

On the obverse of the 40% Silver Eisenhower Dollar Coins is a left-profile bust of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. His image is featured along with an engraving of “Liberty” above his head. Eisenhower was a five-star US Army General during World War II, leading Allied forces as the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe and was the first-ever Supreme Commander of US Forces in Europe following the war.

The reverse of the Eisenhower Dollar Coins features another design from Gasparro. This one depicts an American bald eagle landing on the surface of the moon with an olive branch. The design is based upon the mission patch of the astronauts from Apollo 11.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
