The Eisenhower Dollar is a great coin to collect, especially with children. It is one of the largest United States coins and is fairly inexpensive, even in 40% silver. The series began in 1971 and ran through 1978. With the death of General and President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1969, Congress enacted legislation to honor him with a new one dollar coin. It was issued in both copper-nickel and 40% silver. It gave collectors a new silver dollar for their collection.

Blue Ikes are a term for the 40% silver Eisenhower Dollars issued in 1971 through 1974. They came from the United States Mint in soft blue envelopes to differentiate them from the circulation base metal dollars from the same year.

Brown Ikes are the 40% silver proof Eisenhower Dollars issued from 1971 through 1974. They came from the Mint in brown cardboard boxes suitable for display or presentation.
