How Much Is a Eisenhower Silver Dollar Worth?

The US Mint made more than million Eisenhower dollars in Only around two million of them were silver, with the rest being copper-nickel clad. Even though copper-nickel clad dollars don’t contain silver, some are still worth significant money due to their numismatic value.

The Various Types of Dollars

The United States Mint produced four distinct types of copper-nickel clad dollars, as well as two in 40% silver. Here’s a further rundown on the six types of dollars:

  • Copper-Nickel Clad, Variety 1
  • Copper-Nickel Clad, Variety 2
  • Copper-Nickel Clad, Variety 3
  • D Copper-Nickel Clad
  • S 40% Silver Clad
  • S 40% Silver Clad Proof

Note that there are no S copper-nickel clad proofs. Dollars were not included in proof sets until

Both types of S Eisenhower silver dollars were packaged individually for sale to collectors. The 40% silver proof Ikes are commonly referred to as “Brown Ikes” or “Brown Pack Ikes.” Their original government packaging is a brown-colored faux wood grain cardboard box.

The 40% silver uncirculated Eisenhower dollars are often dubbed “Blue Ikes” or “Blue Pack Ikes.” They were protected by heat-sealed plastic packaging and shipped in blue-colored outer paper envelopes.

Many 40% silver Eisenhower dollars have been broken out of their original government packaging. Some were placed in albums, while others have been graded by coin grading services. Even so, enough silver Eisenhowers remain in their packaging to meet demand. Therefore, there is presently not a standard markup for these pieces. As time goes on and more are broken out of their holders, Brown Ikes and Blue Ikes still in their original government packaging may earn premiums.

The Three Types of Philadelphia Clad Eisenhower Dollars

Let’s get back to those three Eisenhower dollar varieties for a moment… What makes them different from each other?

The three differences are all found on the coin's reverse. The reverse design, by Chief Engraver Frank Gasparro, incorporates the Apollo 11 insignia. You’ll note that the planet Earth is visible in the design above the eagle’s head and right wing. You'll further see geographical details of North America, Central America, and the Caribbean.

The accuracy—or relative lack thereof—in the appearance of Florida and the Caribbean islands is what sets the three types apart.

  • Type 1 – The island of Cuba, seen below a stumpy peninsula of Florida, appears as a tear-drop blob rather than the crescent-shaped peninsula that it is. Another notable diagnostic of the Type 1 is the coin’s overall strike, which is rather soft and results in a low-relief appearance.

  • Type 2 – The Type 2 is the scarcest of the three copper-nickel Ike dollar varieties. It shows Florida appearing more like a triangular funnel, while the Caribbean islands are faint in appearance.

  • Type 3 – This is the most geographically correct design of the three, showing Florida with more coastal detail on its west side. Cuba appears truer to form as a crescent-shaped island, and the islands of Hispaniola and Jamaica to the east and south of Cuba are more distinct.

All Philadelphia-strike Eisenhower dollars will fall into one of these three varieties. The Type 1 and Type 3 prove to be the most common, and the Type 2 is remarkably scarce. Perhaps only 1 in 32 of the Philadelphia-minted Ikes can be attributed as a Type 2.

What’s A Eisenhower Dollar Worth?

clad and silver Eisenhower dollars

Clad and silver Eisenhower dollars

Values range from anywhere between a few cents over face value to thousands of dollars. Of course, that’s not the vague answer you came here for. You’re going to need to know what type of Eisenhower dollar you have, as well as if it is a 40% silver Eisenhower dollar or copper-nickel clad one.

All 40% silver Ikes have an “S” mintmark just below Eisenhower’s neck on the obverse. Suppose your Eisenhower dollar has either a “D” mintmark or no mintmark. In that case, your Ike dollar is not silver. No further testing or inspection of the coin by a coin dealer or bullion expert is necessary. In the case of Eisenhower dollars, it’s quite simple—no “S” mintmark, no silver!

Next is determining whether your S dollar has a proof or uncirculated finish. In the case of a S 40% silver Eisenhower dollar, this will have little bearing on the coin’s value in most cases. But it’s still important to know whether you have a proof or business strike.

Proofs boast a mirror-like surface, whereas business strikes have a satiny appearance. This is the primary aesthetic difference between proof and uncirculated S Ikes. However, the details of a proof Eisenhower dollar are much stronger and distinct than on an uncirculated strike. This is true for both silver and clad proofs.

Ready to find out what your Eisenhower dollar is worth? By this point you have learned the difference between the three types of Philadelphia Eisenhower dollars, as well as between S proof and uncirculated Ikes. The D Eisenhower dollars speak for themselves. They’re all clad, with no known major varieties.

The Eisenhower dollar values above show that even circulated versions of the Type 2 clad dollar are worth looking for and saving. Contrary to the widely held notion that worn clad coins are worthless, this isn’t true in all cases—especially for errors and varieties.

Still, the silver Ikes are the ones that hold the most value across the board. 40% silver Eisenhower dollars have long been popular with silver stackers and other types of bullion investors.

We are pleased to offer for sale this D Kennedy Half Dollar Gem BU.  This Kennedy Half Dollar is in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.  All of our BU Kennedy Half Dollars have nice eye appeal and no major marks or visible problems, representing a great value for the price.  This D Kennedy Half Dollar is of great worth to the collector or numismatist that needs to fill a hole in their BU Kennedy Half Dollar set.  These Kennedy Half Dollars are taken from either original BU Rolls or Mint Sets.

The Kennedy Half Dollar was first struck in as a memorial to the recently assassinated American President, John F. Kennedy.  The U.S. Mint and Congress moved very quickly to make the coin a reality, and the coin was authorized by Congress only a month after Kennedy's death.   Initially, consideration was being given to depicting Kennedy on one of the larger silver coins, the silver dollar, half dollar, or quarter dollar.  The president's widow Jaqueline Kennedy preferred that he be depicted on the half, as she did not want him to replace George Washington on the quarter.

The Kennedy Half Dollar was jointly designed by Gilroy Roberts, the Chief Engraver, and Frank Gasparro.  Both men based their Kennedy Half Dollar designs on the John F. Kennedy Presidential Medal.  This was necessitated by the time constraints involved.  Roberts was responsible for the obverse of both the medal and the Kennedy Half Dollar, and made some minor changes to his previous design, including altering Kennedy's hair at the request of Jaqueline Kennedy, as well as the addition of the words LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST.  The reverse of the coin features the Presidential Seal, adapted by Gasparro from the seal on the Presidential Medal.

The metal composition of the Kennedy Half Dollar has changed several times since the coin was first minted in   Initially, it featured a 90% silver composition, but only for coins bearing the date   However, due to the incredible demand for the Kennedy Half Dollar, coins with the date were reauthorized two times and continued to bear the date until well into , with almost million Kennedy Half Dollars minted in all.  Due in part to the large number of Kennedy Half Dollars, the mint had used up a large portion of its silver holdings, which combined with the rising value of silver, led the amount used in the coins to be reduced to 40% from until   Kennedy Half Dollars produced from on contain no silver and are comprised of copper and nickel. 

The D Kennedy Half Dollar BU is comprised of an outer layer of (75%) copper and (25%) nickel bonded to a core of pure copper.  This Kennedy Half Dollar has a diameter of mm and a mass of grams.

More About Kennedy Half Dollars

The obverse of the Kennedy half dollar was designed by Gilroy Roberts. The reverse is the work of Frank Gasparro, the man who is also behind the Lincoln Memorial cent, Eisenhower dollar, and Susan B. Anthony dollar.

Kennedy half dollars have been struck since but experienced only a brief time circulating in large numbers. Strong public sentiment for the Kennedy half dollar ensured that virtually all Kennedy half dollars were snapped up after arriving at banks around the United States. In the years that followed, continued hoarding of Kennedy half dollars further kept this coin off the streets.

The half dollar was once prevalent in circulation and normal, day-to-day transactions. By the early s, the 50¢ coin became a rare sighting in daily commerce.

Lessening use of the half dollar also led to a major decrease in mintages. Kennedy halves regularly fell below million at any single mint during any given year after Mintages were under 60 million by and fewer than 30 million by The United States Mint stopped making Kennedy half dollars for circulation beginning in It still produces business strikes for collectors, though.

Kennedy Half Dollar Rare Varieties & Errors

All coin series include coins that exhibit off-center errors, clips, or other strike anomalies. But the Kennedy series also boasts a bevy of interesting and highly collectible varieties.

These were introduced in the price guides above and will be examined in closer detail here.

Proof Heavily Accented Hair

Numismatists believe this version of the proof Kennedy half dollar is the first to have been struck. President Kennedy’s wife, Jacqueline, felt the hair detail was too strong on this variety. She requested a softening of the hairlines, which is how most Kennedy half dollars were produced.

On the Heavily Accented Hair variety, the hair stands over Kennedy’s right ear are particularly pronounced. Moreover, the lower left serif of the letter “I” in “LIBERTY” is virtually missing.

There is no known mintage for the Heavily Accented Hair half dollar. However, it’s estimated that less than 5% of the entire proof mintage is of this early variety. Of a total mintage of 3,, pieces, 5% is approximately , pieces.

SMS No FG

The United States Mint ceased making proof sets and uncirculated sets in the mids. In their place, it offered collectors a distinctive type of coin product. Struck on polished dies and planchets, these coins possessed a finish superior to standard uncirculated coins.

These Special Mint Sets were struck from through , yielding a few interesting varieties. This included the SMS Kennedy half dollar missing the "FG" initials of designer Frank Gasparro. The initials are supposed to appear under the eagle's left thigh on the lower-right quadrant of the reverse design. Several other dates in the Kennedy series also exhibit this variety. It shows absolutely no trace of the "FG" initials—inadvertently removed during die polishing.

SMS Doubled Die Obverse

Another SMS half dollar variety is this piece, which shows doubling in the words “IN GOD WE TRUST” and across much of Kennedy’s profile.

D

The last of the original-period 40% silver Kennedy half dollars. This piece was issued only in uncirculated sets. It is among the scarcest of the regular-issue, circulation-era strikes. Only 2,, were produced.

(We've mentioned 40% silver coins a few times so far. You can read more about how these coins can be tricky, or shop for 40% silver at Gainesville Coins.)

D No FG

Perhaps the rarest of the no-FG Kennedy half dollars. This D issue is highly sought after among variety collectors.

Be wary when buying no-FG half dollars. They should also show some strike weakness in other areas of the reverse, particularly in the feather details around the eagle's left leg.

D Doubled Die Obverse

The most significant doubled die of the Kennedy half dollar series is the D obverse doubled die. It exhibits doubling most heavily in the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. A precise mintage figure for this piece is unknown but perhaps a few thousand examples exist.

S Type II Proof

Significant changes were made to the “S” mintmark on proof Kennedy half dollars. This resulted in two varieties for the year—a blobby looking “S” mintmark (Type I mintmark) and a more refined “S” with sharper details (Type II).

The Type II is far less common than the Type I, representing perhaps 15 to 20% of the entire proof mintage for the year. That's roughly a total of , of the 3,, proof halves made in

S Type II Proof

A couple years after the S mintmark was changed, along came more modifications to the “S” mintmark in This time, the Type II “S” mintmark used in was being replaced and served as the Type I “S” mintmark for

A much clearer “S” mintmark with bulbous serifs is the Type II here. It's much scarcer than the S Type I, with perhaps only 10 to 15% of the S proofs represented by the Type II mintmark. That's approximately , of the 4,, proof half dollars made in

P No FG

Another major entry among the no-FG Kennedy half dollars. This variety is quite popular and widely collected by series enthusiasts. It’s also much more common than the SMS and D no-FG pieces.

S Silver Matte Finish

This special S proof half dollar was included in the two-coin Kennedy Collector’s Set, which also contains a S Robert F. Kennedy commemorative silver dollar.

Only 62, examples of the S matte proof half dollar were made. Thus far that is the lowest-mintage non-variety Kennedy half dollar in the series.

W 50th Anniversary Gold

While not normally included in a typical run of Kennedy half dollars, this three-quarter ounce 24 karat gold Kennedy half dollar commemorates the 50th anniversary of the first Kennedy half dollar in It was struck at the West Point Mint to the tune of 73, pieces. Its value is largely dependent on the prevailing winds of the gold bullion market.

Collecting Kennedy Half Dollars

The Kennedy half dollar series doesn't only appeal to collectors of modern coins. It also attracts those who admire John F. Kennedy and the nostalgic “Camelot” period marked by JFK’s tenure in the White House from through

While the series lacks any major key dates or pricey rarities, it is nevertheless a big draw for collectors of high-end coins. Many of the business-strike issues are conditional rarities in grades above MS and especially beyond MS

A complete, basic date-and-mintmark set of business strikes and proofs can be built for less than $2, Add varieties and other unusual offerings, including the W gold half dollar, and the price can quickly approach $7, or more.

Those who wish to build a set in the highest-known grades can quickly run their costs into the high five figures. In other words, the sky’s the limit with how challenging one can make the Kennedy half dollar series.

Given the extraordinary popularity and versatility of the Kennedy half dollar series, there are plenty of options for collectors who wish to pursue this set. Completing a collection of Kennedy half dollars offers exciting avenues for everyone. It's also within the financial reach of most collectors. Yet the myriad opportunities for advanced collectors to customize their sets and include premium-quality examples and unusual varieties offer challenges to even the most advanced numismatists.
