Mints (Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco). The Eisenhower Dollar was Americas last large-size Dollar coin ever minted for circulation. This complete collection includes all 32 different Ike Dollars ever made: 21 Brilliant Uncirculated coins and 11 Proof coins every year of issue and every Mint mark, including the rarely-seen 1976 Bicentennial coins and all 10 special 40% silver coins that were struck exclusively for collectors. The silver coins were available only in special Mint Sets and Proof Sets from the U.Mint, so they were not released for circulation and are unknown to most collectors. The obverse of the coin features Dwight D. During World War II, Eisenhower was commander of the European Theater of Operations; he commanded the Allied landing in North Africa in November 1942 and the brilliant D-Day invasion of Normandy in June 1944.
The reverse of the regular coins is an adaptation of the official Apollo 11 mission patch showing an American eagle landing on the moon (to symbolize the Eagle Lunar Module which brought the first men to the moon in 1969). The eagle carries an olive branch of peace, and the Earth can be seen above its head.The one-time-only 1976 Bicentennial coins have different designs. The reverse of the Bicentennial coins features the moon and Liberty Bell to symbolize 200 years of U. History from the Declaration of Independence to the manned moon landing. This is one of the classic American coins of the 20th century but it is also the forgotten coin that collectors are now scrambling to find. Most collectors would be delighted to own just a few Ike Dollars to round out their collections. Owning the complete collection is usually seen as something that is unattainable because there are many key issues that are tough to find. Even the most experienced collectors may not know where to find these coins.
To make matters worse, Eisenhower Dollars have not been available from the U. Mint for over four decades, so all the remaining coins are in the hands of private collectors and dealers who are often reluctant to part with them.
