Last of the large dollar coins


Eisenhowers are the last of the large dollar coins and often available at your local bank.  Minted from 1971-1978, most common types are copper nickel and are just fun to have as part of a collection.  Some special collector varieties contain 40% silver.  Check the reeded edge of your coin for the brown (copper) to distinguish between the two varieties. NwPlaza buys and sells both types of these coins.
