Product Details

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.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains .3161 oz. of Silver.
  • Multiples of 20 are packaged in protective plastic tubes. All other coins will be in protective plastic.
  • 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. Mintmarks 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.
  • This issue features the mint mark “S” for the San Francisco Mint just above the date.

beatiful coin exceeded my expectations


from Oklahoma


I bought 5 of these coins and received them today, and all I can say, these coins are amazing, absolutely beautiful. I also bought BU Ike's at the same time and they are also great coins, but by far these are way prettier. The mirror finish is just awesome. Matter of fact, I think I'm going to order more this weekend. When they say 2 day shipping they mean 2 day shipping. very satisfied

Not Very happy with this one.

By  Tony Rebel

from Tacoma, WA


I bought this Gem proof and another 72 Gem proof. This one did not even compare to the others condition. Def not a Gem in my opinion. I'll post a pic. I even left a comment to please pick a nice Gem for me cause I have received a few BU's from APMEX that were absolutely not BU.
