Yes. Please check your pocket change. ALL U.S. coins have their reverse sides oriented upside-down with respect to the obverse (front) side. There's nothing special about that orientation. Some countries' coins have both sides oriented the same way while others are opposite. It's just a matter of choice.

Eisenhower was on the one dollar coin, and it's worth one dollar.

AnswerPlease check your pocket change! ALL coins in the U.S. have their reverse sides oriented upside down with respect to the front, so what you have is an ordinary circulation coin, not an error. A lot of late-issue Walkers were saved, so they remain common among collectors. Regardless of condition or mint mark your coin is worth about $10.50, mostly due to its silver content.

Please look at your pocket change. ALL U.S. coins have the reverse side inverted with respect to the front, so you do NOT have an error coin. See this link for values.

Please compare your coin's orientation to other U.S. coins. If the eagle is upside down when you flip the coin sideways like turning the page of a book, that is normal for ALL U.S. coins. Try it with a penny from your pocket change! In any case you have a nice coin - current retail for an 1883-CC dollar is in the range of $75 to $100 depending on condition.

Liberty The American Revolution - 1997 The World Turned Upside Down 1778-1783 1-5 was released on: USA: 25 November 1997

If you take a closer look at ANY U.S. coin, you'll notice that the image on the back is upside-down in relation to the image on the front. This means your 1950 Franklin half does NOT have an error. That said, it's currently worth about $12 for the silver content.

Upside down is relative to which way you flip the coin. If flipping from top to bottom, the eagle should be upright. If flipping from side to side, the eagle should be upside-down. If the eagle is truly upside down from the way it should be, AND the coin has not been altered, then it could be worth a couple of hundred dollars.

By "upside down", do you mean that the eagle is upside down when you flip the coin side to side, like the pages of a book, or top to bottom, like a calendar? Compare your dollar to any coin in your pocket change. If the eagle is upside down when flipped side to side, just like the other coins, you have a normal silver dollar worth maybe $12 to $15 depending on condition. If it's upside down when flipped like a calendar, you could have a mint error that needs to be checked by a specialist. Note that nearly all U.S. coins use what's called "coin rotation", where the front and back (obverse and reverse) are opposite in orientation. Some other countries (Canada, U.K., EU, for example) use "medal rotation" where the obverse and reverse point the same direction. It's just a matter of what each issuer's mints chose to use.

Yes. The reverse [tails] of the dollar coin is supposed to be turned 180 degrees from the obverse side [heads].

Please compare your coin to others in your pocket change. ALL U.S. coins are minted with the back side oriented upside-down with respect to the front. Assuming your dollar is in circulated condition and has a copper-colored edge it's made of copper-nickel not worth anything special. If it's a proof coin or is in a special package that's marked 40% silver it's worth about $4 or $5 as of 07/2009.
