U.S. Eisenhower 1974-S 40% Silver Dollar Proof:
Just 1.3 million were issued in 1974 in this 40% silver proof quality, the second-lowest proof mintage in the Ike dollar series. Overall, only a very small percentage of Eisenhower dollars were struck in silver and less than half of those in this finest-quality proof form, with deep-struck engravings and dazzling mirror surfaces. The Eagle on Moon reverse honoring America’s space program began under Ike’s administration.
U.S. Eisenhower 1976-S 40% Silver Dollar BU:
Only 5% of all Ike dollars were struck in silver. And this special “Bicentennial” issue was the last 40% silver date in the series, capping the revival of the traditional-size 38mm U.S. silver dollar. The magnificent bust portrait of President Eisenhower followed the passing of this great American in 1969. The double-dated 1776-1976 “Bicentennial” issue features a unique Liberty Bell/Moon reverse.
