Description & Analysis

In 1973, Philadelphia and Denver Eisenhower dollars were only released in mint sets sold at a premium to collectors. Due to this, the mintage was vastly lower than the 1972 issue. Two million were struck, but nearly a quarter million of those were destroyed by the mint when they went unsold.
