Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: This is the first year in which the Eisenhower Dollar was struck. In 1971, the Mint struck four different coins for this date.

First the 1971-P, second the 1971-D, third the 1971-S Uncirculated coin and finally, the 1971-S Proof coin.   MS65: In MS65 grade it is very difficult to find as most of them have already been graded. Because of the large size and weight of the coin most coins have visible nicks and scratches. Possibly no more than 1,500 coins exist in this grade.   MS66: This is the highest grade possible with about 50 known examples in this grade.
