A 1976 Eisenhower dollar, minted at the San Francisco mint (S mintmark). Eisenhower dollars were the first dollar coins produced in the U.S. since the Peace Dollar series, which ended in 1935. Dollar coins were never popular with the public, and circulated little outside of the west (where they were primarily used in casinos). Even the U.S. Mint considered dollar coins a waste of resources. Despite the lack of public support and the opposition of the U.S. Mint, a Nevada senator succeeded in pushing a bill through Congress to reestablish the dollar coin in 1971, with a design featuring the recently-deceased President Eisenhower. While the bill was passed successfully, there was disagreement between Republicans and Democrats over whether the coin should be produced in silver or base metal (copper-nickel). Eventually a compromise was reached - the coin would be produced in copper-nickel for circulation, with 40% silver coins sold to collectors for a small premium. The Eisenhower dollar was produced from 1971-1978, until it was replaced by the Susan B. Anthony dollar. The obverse side of the coin features a portrait of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th president of the United States. While the Eisenhower dollars produced for circulation were struck in copper-nickel, these coins were produced in a 40% silver alloy and sold directly to collectors. Along with the half dollar, and the quarter, the 1976 version of the Eisenhower dollar features a special design to commemorate the nation and bicentennial. The reverse features the Liberty Bell superimposed on the moon. Each coin is in Mint State condition, with strong luster and no wear. These coins measure 38mm in diameter, weigh 25g, and are .400 fine silver.
