Value: As a rough estimate of this coins value you can assume this coin in average condition will be valued at somewhere around $7, while one in certified mint state (MS+) condition could bring as much as $69 at auction. This price does not reference any standard coin grading scale. So when we say average, we mean in a similar condition to other coins issued in 1971, and mint state meaning it is certified MS+ by one of the top coin grading companies. [?].

Additional Info: The numbers and values above are for the S (San Francisco) minted 1971 Ike Dollars. If you look at the mintage numbers you can see only 6.8 million of these were issued. Compare that number to the 68 million issued in Denver that year and you can see how rare the S minted Eisenhower dollars are. This is because congress only agreed to issue limited 40% silver dollars and these were to be included in collector sets sold by the mint.

Numismatic vs Intrinsic Value: This coin in poor condition is still worth $1.2 more than the intrinsic value from silver content of $5.8, this coin is thus more valuable to a collector than to a silver bug. Coins worth more to a collectors may be a better long term investment. If the metal prices drop you will still have a coin that a numismatic would want to buy.
