1971 S Eisenhower Ike Silver $1 Dollar - 40% Silver - Gem Proof
· This 1971-S Eisenhower Dollar is in MS-60 to MS-65 Gem Proof Condition. The Ike Dollar was the first dollar intended for circulation after the Peace Dollar and pays tribute to the success of General/President Eisenhower and the Apollo XI.
· Obverse: Features a striking profile of General/President Dwight David Eisenhower facing left with the legend of “LIBERTY” above his head. Underneath his chin is the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” with the date at the base of his profile. Mint marks appear below Eisenhower’s neck above the third and fourth number in the date of the coin.
· Reverse: Reflects the design of the Apollo XI’s insignia. Depicted is an eagle flying over the surface of the moon with an olive branch firmly grasped in his claws with a small Earth turned so that North America can be seen. Thirteen stars surround the eagle’s flight. The legend at the top displays “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” with the motto “E PLURIBUS UNUM” directly underneath, and the denomination of “ONE DOLLAR” at the bottom of the coin.
