"Brown" Ike

The Eisenhower dollar was introduced in 1971 to honor President Eisenhower and the first landing of man on the moon. The coin was designed by Frank Gasparro, Chief Engraver at the United States Mint. Collector coins were struck in 40% silver composition while the ciculation strikes were issued in copper-nickel. No Ike dollars were produced dated 1975. To commemorate the bicentennial of the United States, a new reverse was introduced for the coins minted in 1975 and 1976 featuring the Liberty Bell superimposed over the moon. The obverse remained unchanged except for the dual date 1776-1976. Two varities were produced dated 1976, Variety I with flat letters on the reverse legend and Variety II with bolder, thinner letters on the reverse legend. A 40% silver bicentennial issue was made available to collectors in special 3-coin proof and mint sets that contained all three 1976 commemorative coins.

Eisenhower Dollars were produced in 40% silver between 1971 and 1974 in both Uncirculated and Proof. The uncirculated silver dollars were packaged in pliofilm inside a blue envelope. The proof silver dollars were encapsulated in a hard plastic case inserted in a brown box. These silver Ike dollars were sold directly to collectors by the Mint and were not included in the Proof and Mint sets issued in those years. The first chart below is for these "collector" 40% silver issues.

The last chart lists all the different Ike dollars available in all metals from all mints. These coins are nice uncirculated and proof coins from original rolls or mint and proof sets and are packaged in mylar 2 X 2 s.
