About this Product Full Product Name

The 1976 Bicentennial Eisenhower Dollar was struck in 1975 and 1976, in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of American independence.

The Obverse side of the coin uses the original Eisenhower dollar design, designed by the Mint Chief Engraver Frank Gasparro, featuring a bust of President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The Reverse design, unique to the 1976 Eisenhower dollar, was created by Dennis R. Williams as part of a public design competition. The design features a depiction of the Liberty Bell overlapping the Moon.

The Type I Bicentennial Eisenhower dollar features less distinct lettering on the reverse due to a striking issue. This led to its replacement by the Type II Bicentennial Eisenhower Dollar.

In comparison to the Type I Eisenhower, The Type II Bicentennial Eisenhower Dollar features sharper and more legible lettering on the reverse of the face of the coin.

All silver Bicentennial Eisenhower Dollars use the Type I design, with less distinct and less sharp lettering on the reverse of the coin than the Type II version.

Each order is for three 1976 Bicentennial Eisenhower Proof Dollars in PCGS PR69 condition. The three coins in this set are the Type 1 and Type 2 clad 1976 Eisenhower Proof Dollars and the 1976 Silver Eisenhower Proof Dollar.
