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.

2007 Presidential Dollar Coins: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison

2008 Presidential Dollar Coins: James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, and Martin Van Buren

2013 Presidential Dollar Coins: William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, and Woodrow Wilson

2014 Presidential Dollar Coins: Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, and Franklin D. Roosevelt

2015 Presidential Dollar Coins: Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson

Presidential Dollar Coins Folders - Coin collecting items from

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.

      The coins have not really gone up in value. This is good or bad, depending if you are collecting or investing.

      I've got a a bunch of graded Presidential dollars including some error ones. If this coin goes out of production as rumored, I think the value will increase significantly for these coins! Hope so at least!

      My favorite president was Lincoln, the coins for unknown presidents I can't distinguish as much. I wish they'd bring back the $2 bills too!

      The presidential coins are ok, but I enjoyed the design on the Sacagawea one better.
