PCGS - Is there any modern-clad dollar more longing for attention than the 1977 Eisenhower dollars? Maybe ask the 1980 Susan B. Anthony dollars and get back to us. Just like the 1980 SBA Dollars, a coin struck with relatively little numismatic significance (unlike its first-year 1979 counterparts or scarce 1981 kin), the 1977 Eisenhower dollar is a coin without seemingly much going for it - at least on the surface. It was sandwiched between the prolific and popular Bicentennial coinage of 1976, the penultimate entry in the Ike dollar series that ended in 1978.

On the surface seems the 1977 Eisenhower dollar seems to offer little to collectors today but a few opportunities to fill holes in a set of Eisenhower dollars, a series that kicked off in 1971. But scratch beyond the surface and one sees issues worth looking into. The Eisenhower dollar was struck for circulation at the Philadelphia and Denver Mints in 1977, though the coin saw relatively little action in commerce beyond the casinos of Nevada. Consequently, only 12,596,000 were made in Philly and 32,983,000 at Denver. Meanwhile, the San Francisco Mint turned out 3,251,125 copper-nickel clad examples for collectors buying 1977 Proof Sets. Most proofs fetch around $7 to $15, but the record price for a 1977-S Ike goes to a PCGS PR70DCAM that took $7,015 in a 2008 Heritage Auctions sale.

I think a nice Ike Set is still one of the most doable sets for people on a budget. Compared to other coins, it has not yet caught up in the buying frenzy of the last 18 months (I'm looking at you, Morgan and Peace dollar).

I agree with that. It's a great assembly of big coins too.

I bought a set few months back, but it doesn't include proofs or other special issues, need to re-investigate this series.

I've always like the '77. It's the second lowest mintage but still high enough it didn't stand out as being so low. Circulation issues were generally quite poor and a lot of the mint set coins had trouble as well. Now most of the mint set coins are tarnished as well. Nice attractive chBU coins are far tougher than most realize but there are nice gemmy coins available as well as true Gems.

A lot of circs served time in Vegas so are chewed up.

I have a 1977-D (and a 1976-D V2) my dad rescued in late 1978 before they got too bad. These are the ones mentioned in my very first post. They live in my Dansco.
