The Eisenhower coin was made to honour the 100th anniversary of former United States president Dwight D. Eisenhower’s birth. The coin is made from 90% silver and shows a double portrait of “Ike” to symbolise his role as a military leader and president. The design for the military side was by mint engraver John Mercanti and shows Eisenhower as a five star general of the US army. The opposite side was by Marcel Jovine and shows a view of Eisenhower’s home near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
