About this coin:-
"Silver" dollars return: Beginning with the 1971 Eisenhower dollar, silver (albeit 40% silver) dollars were again a part of the American numismatic scene.
Struck in Uncirculated and Proof formats, the 40% silver Ikes were made available to collectors through the U.S. Mint.
The Uncirculated version was sold in a pliofilm package housed in a navy blue envelope, earning the nickname "blue" Ike.
The Proof version of the coin was housed in a large, somewhat awkward plastic holder, and came in a brown box with a gold embossed eagle design on the front,
giving rise to the nickname "brown" Ike. The "blue" and "brown" sobriquets have remained in use to this day.
