United States Mint Launches First Presidential $1 Coin Products

WASHINGTON – The first product featuring the new Presidential $1 Coins became available at noon (ET) on February 15, 2007.

George Washington Presidential $1 Coin Bags and Rolls – bags of 250 coins and rolls of 25 coins – were available starting February 15. Bags and rolls of Presidential $1 Coins honoring John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison will be available later this year. Bags will sell for $319.95, and rolls will sell for $35.95.

The United States is honoring our Nation’s past Presidents with circulating Presidential $1 Coins featuring their images in the order that they served, beginning with Presidents Washington, Adams, Jefferson and Madison in 2007. The United States Mint will mint and issue four Presidential $1 Coins per year, and each will have a reverse design featuring a striking rendition of the Statue of Liberty. The composition of the new Presidential $1 Coins will be identical to that of the Golden Dollar featuring Sacagawea.

The Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-145) seeks to revitalize the design of United States coins and return circulating coinage to its position as an object of aesthetic beauty in its own right. Accordingly, the new Presidential $1 Coins will feature larger, more dramatic artwork, as well as edge-incused inscriptions of the year of minting or issuance, "E Pluribus Unum," "In God We Trust" and the mint mark.

Customers can order the George Washington Presidential $1 Coin Bags and Rolls by using the United States Mint’s secure website, www.usmint.gov, or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing- and speech-impaired customers may order by calling 1-888-321-MINT (6468). A shipping and handling fee of $4.95 per order will be added to all domestic orders
