2008 United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set™ Offered January 29

WASHINGTON - The 2008 United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set™ will be available at 12:00 noon (ET) today. The set, priced at $14.95, contains the coins for 2008 in the Presidential $1 Coin Program and honors James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren.

The Presidential $1 Coin Program, launched in 2007, pays tribute to the Presidents of the United States in the order in which they served. The multi-year program, authorized by the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005, features four new obverse designs annually.

The coins in the 2008 United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set are proof versions of the general circulating $1 coins scheduled for release, beginning with the James Monroe Presidential $1 Coin in February. These proof coins are struck multiple times with specially polished dies to create a brilliant, sharp relief and mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special "cameo" effect. Each coin bears the "S" mint mark representing production at the United States Mint at San Francisco.

There is no limit on the quantity of 2008 United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin Proof Sets produced or on the number of sets that can be ordered.

Hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may call 1-888-321-MINT (6468) to place an order. A shipping and handling fee of $4.95 per order will be added to all domestic orders.
