    I know the 1971 ike dollar proof coin is struck on40% silver. Is the regular strike also struck on 40% silver?

    As far as I am aware the circulation strike was not silver. The 40% one was sold with a premium. Also, the 40% silver Ikes were minted in San Francisco- your coin is from Denver.

    The regular business strikes were all cupro/nickel, none in silver.

    This particular one looks like it contains more silver from the rim. It just looks way different then my other ones which look mostly brownish redish.

    Does the rim of this look normal maybe just cleaner then my other ones?

    Yours is a normal clad Ike. Not silver.
