Description

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 1976, the U.S. Mint struck a special one-time-only edition of the Eisenhower Dollar.

This was the first commemorative dollar coin design issued for circulation U.S. history.

In addition to the standard version of the coin, the U.S. Mint also made a proof edition exclusively for collectors. The proof coin was available only in special sets.

The obverse of the coin is similar to the standard Eisenhower Dollar: a portrait of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the World War II hero and President of the United States from 1953-1961. However, it also includes the dual date “1776-1976.” 

The reverse is a one-time-only design featuring the moon and the Liberty Bell to symbolize 200 years of U.S. history from the Declaration of Independence to the space age and America’s manned moon missions.

Proof coins are the rarest of all U.S. coins, as well as the highest quality coins. This coin was struck at least twice on a specially polished coin blank, and the coin press was set at very high pressure. The result is designs that are much more three-dimensional than on circulating coins, and the coin also has a distinctive mirror-like background.

All Proof coins are graded on a 70-point scale, and the coin offered here has been independently graded and certified as Proof-66 (abbreviated PR66) or higher by ICG, one of the most trusted and prestigious coin grading companies.

PR66 is one of the highest grades known for this coin, and the coin is almost flawless. There are no visible marks.

Proofs were struck only at the U.S. Mint in San Francisco and are the only bicentennial Eisenhower Dollars struck in San Francisco. The coin features the “S” mint mark above “1976.”

The coin is encapsulated in a special tamper-proof holder that makes it safe to examine without fear of damaging the proof finish. The label that is sealed within the holder certifies the coin’s grade.
