This is an actual Eisenhower Silver Dollar. It has been hand painted and fired in a kiln. The coin is then set on a money clip.
The Eisenhower Dollar is a dollar coin issued by the United States government from 1971 - 1978. The money clip displays The Apollo 11 Mission Insignia on the back of the coin designed by Frank Gasparro. the tenth Chief Engraver of the United States Mint.
The Eisenhower Dollar was struck to celebrate Dwight D. Eisenhower, who died in 1969, and the Apollo 11 moon landing of the same year.
These beautiful hand-painted coins and medallions continue a very old art form of a family of artists. In painstaking fashion, the artist applies color initially to outline the design, followed by high tempered firing process. The firing process is repeated after each color is applied. The hand-painting process for each piece varies, some taking as long as two days to complete. In the final stage, in order to protect the delicate hand painting, the artist applies and bakes-on a covering of space age plastic, which also adds depth and luster to the item while providing protection forever.
Eisenhower Silver Dollar Money Clip is a wonderful and practical item for yourself to use or as a cherishable personalized gift for that special person.
Please allow three weeks from the time of order for our artist to complete your one-of-a-kind money clip.
