Basic Info

President George W. Bush started the Presidential $1 Coin Programon December 2005 and as per program four one-dollar coins were issued every year since January 2007. Presidential dollars were minted beside the Sacagawea dollar coin. Presidential dollar series honors all the American presidents who have been dead for at least 2 years, in order in which they served office. The reverse of these coins has the Statue of Liberty design. The mint mark, mint year, thirteen stars, In God We Trust motto, the legend E Pluribus Unum are in the edge of each Presidential dollar coin. The Presidential dollar program was started in the year 2007 and ended in 2016.

There are few errors and varieties in Presidential dollars. One of the following is where the edge lettering is missing with in the Presidential dollars. But you have to be careful not to confuse that with the circulation wear. The errors in Presidential dollars like other errors are worth more than the face value of the coins.

Overtime, the uncirculated $1 coins were in plenty. In December 2011, Mr. Joe Biden, the then Vice President announced that the minting of Presidential dollars was suspended briefly. Later the production was resumed, and the dollar coins were minted only for collectors from 2012 to 2016.

Nope! No love for these coins.


Level 6

Not a favorite of mine.. Just not interesting to me. Thanks for the blog! ; )


Level 6

Not a fan of this series. Doesn't mean it's not nice. I wish you luck. Thanks.


Level 5

Nice set, but I never got interested in them. Good searching !


Level 7

That is just another set that didn't sell. I didn't buy it because it didn't catch my eye. But those who did enjoy it.!!


Level 5

I don't think the Mint did most of the Presidents justice on looks.


Level 6

I have never loved old men on coins and certainly this series is all about that. I have my Lincoln (favorite President) but will never collect the series. Having said that, I think anyone that does complete the series has my utmost respect because we all collect what brings us joy. Thanks for sharing your collection with us.

Same here, not a big fan of edge lettering either but have the entire series in ms grades. Not a terrible bad themed coin series, I actually enjoyed collecting them during the programs run. Now if only they'd ditch the one dollar Federal Reserve notes.

I was never crazy about these coins because of the letter edging. Too hard to see, but I dutifully collected the whole set, P and D
