• One 40% silver coin -  minted in an outer layer of .800 silver and .200 copper bonded to an inner core of .209 silver and .791 copper (total composition .400 silver and .600 copper).

• 1971-1974 Eisenhower Silver Dollar in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

• The coin is delivered in a custom display wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity.

• The Eisenhower Dollar was America’s last large-size Dollar coin ever minted for circulation.

• It was minted only from 1971-1978 and is a treasured piece of American history.

• In addition to regular coins for circulation, the U.S. Mint also made a small number of Brilliant Uncirculated coins for collectors in .400 silver.

• Standard Eisenhower Dollars for circulation were made in copper-nickel.

• The regular silver coins were made only from 1971-1974.

• The .400 silver coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition were available only in blue packaging.

• As a result, these historic Silver Dollars are known as “Blue Ikes.”

• All “Blue Ikes” were struck at the San Francisco Mint and bear the coveted “S” mint mark on the obverse, above the date.

• “Blue Ikes” were not released into circulation but were made only for collectors.

• The “Blue Ikes” were the first .400 Silver Dollars in history.

• The obverse of the coin features Dwight D. Eisenhower, the World War II hero and U.S. President from 1953-1961.

• The reverse is an adaptation of the official Apollo 11 mission patch;  it shows an American eagle landing on the moon, with the Earth above its head.

• The coin is in original Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

• The last “Blue Ike” was available from the U.S. Mint over three decades ago.
