Q:

What are Eisenhower dollars?

A:

An Eisenhower dollar is a coin minted by the U.S. Mint from 1971 to 1978. The coins contain 92-percent copper and 8-percent nickel, although the coins produced for collectors are made of 40-percent silver.

Prior to the production of the Eisenhower dollar, the U.S. Mint had not minted any dollar coins since production of the Peace dollar ended in 1935. After ending production of the Eisenhower dollar, the Mint began producing a new dollar coin with a Susan B. Anthony design. As of 2014, an Eisenhower dollar made from copper and nickel is worth between $1 to $3 to collectors.
