The History of Presidential Dollar Coins
The US Mint is honoring our Nation's Presidents by issuing $1 Gold Coins featuring the United States Presidents in the order that they served.
The US Mint is in the process of issuing four Presidential Dollar Coins per year starting in 2007 and going thru 2016. Each Presidential Dollar Coin has a common reverse design featuring a striking rendition of the Statue of Liberty. Although, the coin's metal content does not include any gold it does include 88.5% copper, 6% zinc, 3.5% manganese, and 2% nickel.
Proof Presidential Dollar coins are similar in size and color to the Sacagawea Golden Dollar Proof condition - collectors' coins; struck at least twice on highly polished coin blanks to bring out the mirrored background and high-relief images. They measure approx. 26.5mm (1.04") in diameter Weigh approx. 8.1g (.285 oz.) Sealed storage tube Certificate of authenticity Produced by the San Francisco Mint
What I like most is the edge-incused inscriptions of the year of minting or issuance, "E Pluribus Unum," "In God We Trust" and the mint mark. The size, weight and metal composition of the new Presidential Dollar Gold Coins are identical to that of the Sacagawea Golden Dollar, but there are several unique features that make this gold coin distinctive.

Presidential Dollar Coins Folders - Coin collecting items from Amazon.com
I love coin collecting folders. These are the best way to save and collect your presidential dollar coin collection. There are typically two types of collecting folders. The first type has one space for each coin. The second type will have multiple spaces for each coin to save each mint mark of each coin.
