Eisenhower dollar proofs were the first silver dollar proofs issued to the general public by the U.S. Mint (the few made earlier are rare and extremely costly).

Overall, only 6% of Eisenhower dollars were struck in silver and less than half of those in this finest-quality proof form, with deep-struck engravings and dazzling mirror surfaces.
