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.

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.
