A.J., you weren't even born when the Ike Dollars first hit the streets but I will tell you, it was an exciting time for us old timers, to have a full-sized Dollar back. Thanks so much for the photos, that looks like a really nice Ike you have there.

Would be hard not to notice someone walking down the street wearing that back in 1972. Very Superfly-period jewelry I might add. A cool thing to impress your non-numismatic friends with!

There are companies that plate coins in private mints. It is always neat to have a few of these coins in a collection.

Sounds like you really like that gold plated Ike (pun is intended). That's what is important about what you collect, that you like it. Is there any way you can provide a pic?

Like you have been told, the plating ruins any value. BUT if you like it then it has value to you..That is what counts. Thanks..

Thank You for sharing A.J., I wish you could have included a picture, as Sun and Pat pointed out, it would have definitely been plated outside the Mint. The numismatic value is normally lessened with such a post-mint action. But since it is probably a CN Eisenhower Dollar, it probably doesn't matter. Enjoy!!!

Any coin that is good plates is done by a jeweler or someone in that line of bussiness. It sounds like a nice coin. Enjoy it.

It was gold plated outside the mint. The mint does not gold plate coin for jewelry or anything else.
