The U.S. Mint has produced silver dollar coins featuring Dwight D. Eisenhower, Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea. The Eisenhower silver dollar was produced from 1971 to 1978 and was succeeded by the Susan B. Anthony silver dollar from 1979 to 1981, with a re-release in 1999.

The Sacagawea dollar is part of the Native American coin set and began production in 2000. Prior to the release of the Eisenhower silver dollar, silver dollar designs did not feature any particular person. The Seated Liberty dollar featured an artistic rendering of the concept of liberty, as did the Morgan and Peace silver dollars.
