The Last of the Large-Sized Dollars

Between 1971 and 1978, the mint struck its last-ever large dollar coin series. The coins honor Dwight Eisenhower, the hero of World War II in Europe and President for two terms in the 1950s. Each contains 75% copper and 25% nickel and is in Extremely Fine (XF) to About Uncirculated (AU) condition. These Eisenhower Dollars are actually a commemorative celebrating the Apollo moon missions and the landing of the first men on the moon in 1969. Each coin has an eagle landing on the moon on its reverse! Struck more than 35 years ago, these large-sized dollars were short-lived. Their large size and heft made them less practical to carry around, and paper notes prevailed. Don’t short-change your collection. Make sure to stash a few of these Eisenhower Dollars away, as this brief seven-year-mintage will continue to become harder to find. Dates vary.
