After the final year of the Peace Dollar's production in 1935 the US didn't have a Silver Dollar in production for nearly 40 years. That all changed in 1971 when the Eisenhower ( Ike ) Dollar was released. It Honored both President Eisenhower ( obverse design ) and the 1st landing of a man on the moon ( reverse design ). The design was changed in 1975 - 1976 in honor of our Bicentennial. The Bicentennial design choices were unique in our silver dollar history ... the reverse stayed with the "man landing on the moon" theme by placing the Liberty Bell over the moon, but the subtle change to the front made history. The date of 1776-1976 was the 1st dual date silver dollar in US History.

After only a few years the US Mint soon found out the people wouldn't circulate a dollar coin when they had the light weight paper dollar instead, so the series was cancelled after only 8 years of production in 1978. The regular issue coins were struck at both the Philadelphia and Denver Mint's.

But good luck trying to find one from each year they were made! The Mint made it difficult. They never released the 1973's into circulation - they were only available in special collector sets. And 2 distinct reverse designs were created in 1975 and 1976. The initial design had "Flat" lettering on the reverse, and it was modified early in 1975 with "sharp" lettering to produce a more attractive design.

If you add them all up there were a total of 16 Ike dollars issued by the US Mint for circulation. Our complete collection has them all .. the 73's and both varieties of the bicentennial, all in uncirculated condition !!
