Eisenhower Dollars with proof - Dansco Coin Albums

  • $46.00

Dansco Coin Albums have been a longtime companion for both expert numismatists and beginning coin collectors. The Eisenhower Dollars with Proof 1971-1978 Dansco Album comes in a 5/8" binder and holds up to 48 coins. The album has 4 Dansco pages (series: 8176-1 to 8176-4), each one holding and displaying all Eisenhower dollars minted from 1971-1978 including the proof coins. Engraver Frank Gasparro designed the new coins. The obverse had President Dwight D. Eisenhower's portrait and the reverse saw an eagle landing on the moon. Coins for collectors were struck in 40% silver, while the circulation issues were made of copper and nickel. No Eisenhower coins were issued in 1975 and no silver clad coins were struck after 1974. A special coin with the Liberty Bell and the moon on the reverse was launched in 1976. From 1977-1978 the eagle landing on the moon was placed again on the reverse. Eisenhower coins issued in silver weigh 24.59 grams, while the coins made of copper and nickel weigh 22.68 grams. All Eisenhower coins measure 38.1 mm. Eisenhower dollars were coined at the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco Mints. Dansco Coin Albums have their pages attached with metal screws, making it easy to add and replace.
