What makes this coin a Coin Worth Keeping?
The Eisenhower Commemorative Silver Dollar was struck to celebrate the 100th anniversary of President Dwight D. Eisenhower's birth. "Ike" was the 34th President of the United States (1953-1961) and a five star general in the United States Army during World War II. In 1951, he became the first Supreme Commander of NATO.
The Eisenhower Centennial Commemorative was the first American silver coin to be minted at the West Point Mint. It is also the only U.S. coin to features two portraits of the same person. The dual portraits symbolize his military service and his time as the 34th president of the United States.
The obverse of the coin was designed by John Mercanti. It depicts Ike as the President superimposed over Ike as the five star general. The reverse was designed by Marcel Jovine. It depicts Eisenhower's home in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (a national historic site). Although the mint was authorized to produce up to 4 million of the commemorative coins, only 241,669 were minted at West Point.
