Mystery Eisenhower Presentation Silver Dollar Discovered

March 7th, 2013 by


CoinWeek is reporting that a previously unknown Eisenhower silver dollar in a presentation case case bearing Richard Nixon’s name has been discovered, and neither the U.S. Mint nor the Smithsonian have yet found any record of it.

Found on eBay by coin collector Andy Oskom, the proof coin came in a cardboard box printed with a woodgrain pattern, the Presidential Seal, and image of President Nixon’s signature (Nixon was Eisenhower’s Vice President.) This proof coin was struck using the low relief circulation die on reverse.
