Q:

What are Liberty Bell silver dollar coins?

A:

Liberty Bell silver dollar coins are a version of the silver dollar that was only made in 1976 for the U.S. bicentennial. They feature the Liberty Bell superimposed on top of the moon.

The front of the coin features the face of Dwight D. Eisenhower. These silver dollars are one of the last coins that were 40 percent silver. They were also made from copper and nickel. During Eisenhower's time in office, there were two silver dollars minted, and the other one showed the Apollo 11 insignia to honor the moon landing. The Liberty Bell silver dollars and the Apollo 11 silver dollars are now worth around $7 due to the increase of price in the metals that compose them.
