Check out these Eisenhower silver dollar coins for sale that were originally issued 1971-1978. The Eisenhower dollar was the first $1 coin issued by the U.S. Mint since the Peace dollar coin series came to an end in 1935. Throughout history, there has always been an effort to get the American public to use dollar coins instead of paper money since they last longer and don’t need to be reprinted as often. The Eisenhower dollar did not catch on with the public with the exception of casinos in Nevada who used them instead of tokens. The Eisenhower dollar coin was replaced by the smaller Susan B Anthony dollar coin in 1979.
