Why does the Eisenhower dollar have an abbreviation like Ike? How did this abbreviation appear ?

'Ike' is an informal (colloquial) version of Dwight Eisenhower's name. Part of US popular culture at the time.

"Ike" was President Eisenhower's nickname since he was a kid.

"His mother originally named him David Dwight but reversed the two names after his birth to avoid the confusion of having two Davids in the family. All of the boys were called "Ike", such as "Big Ike" (Edgar) and "Little Ike" (Dwight); the nickname was intended as an abbreviation of their last name."

The political slogan for his election was "I like Ike." That was just before my time.

I believe Earle has evidence that Ike was an avid Pepsi drinker and Cubs fan.
