The final coin ever issued into circulation in the United States with some level of silver content was the Eisenhower Dollar. However, those silver pieces were intended as commemorative strikes. The most commonly issued version of the Eisenhower Dollar was the Clad Eisenhower Dollar, a $1 (USD) piece with copper and nickel in its alloy composition. Now, Clad Eisenhower Dollars are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Coins ship to you inside of individual plastic flips!
  • Released between 1971 and 1978!
  • Consists of 91.67% copper and 8.33% nickel.
  • Issued a face value of $1 (USD) by the United States.
  • The obverse has a portrait of President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
  • On the reverse is either the American bald eagle on the moon or the Liberty Bell in front of the moon.
  • Please keep in mind that the dates and designs could match on the coins you receive if you buy multiples.

The release of the Clad Eisenhower Dollar started off with the production of 125 million coins in 1971 during the first year of availability. This figure was more than double the largest annual production for any dollar coin in the history of the United States. That record didn’t stand long though as the 1972 release included more than 170 million coins struck that year.

Despite the high supplies of the Clad Eisenhower Dollar each year, the coins did not circulate well within the American economy. The coins were predominantly used in the state of Nevada, where the coins were popular with casinos and gamblers as a replacement for privately-issued tokens to use in gambling halls.

The obverse side of Clad Eisenhower Dollars features a left-profile portrait of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The bust of President Eisenhower found on the obverse of the coins was designed by Frank Gasparro, the 10th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. Mr. Gasparro held the role from 1965 to 1981 and had previously worked on designs still in use on the Kennedy Half Dollar when he was an assistant engraver at the US Mint.

On the reverse face of Clad Eisenhower Dollar is a depiction of the American bald eagle. The design is based on the Apollo 11 mission patch, with an American bald eagle landing on the surface of the moon. The Earth is visible in the distant background and this design was, like the obverse, created by Frank Gasparro. In 1975-1976, a separate design with the Liberty Bell in the foreground and the moon in the background was used to honor the nation’s Bicentennial.

These Clad Eisenhower Dollars are available to you with individual plastic flips. The coins come with date marks ranging from 1971 to 1978. Please note we do not guarantee a particular date mark and corresponding design with your purchase. All items are chosen at random from available stock after your payment has cleared.

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.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

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.
