The Presidential Dollar

On December 22, 2005, an Act was signed by then-President George W. Bush to honor the special individuals who were seated as Presidents of the United States of America. The Act was called the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-145) where portraits of the eligible presidents will be featured on a Gold-colored Dollar Coin.

Four brand new dollar coins will be minted every year where the name of the featured president, the number or order of Presidency, years of terms as a US President and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST will be indicated on the obverse. The designer of the obverse varies.

As for the reverse, Don Everhart was the designer who was also a US Mint Sculptor and Engraver. A large Statue of Liberty is featured to create a dramatic impression. The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the denomination $1 are also included in the design of the reverse.

The Presidential dollars were made to have edge-incused inscriptions so as to make more room on each side of the coin. It allows the coin to have a more dramatic as well as a much larger sized artwork. The inscriptions that can be found on the edges are E PLURIBUS UNUM, the respective mintmark and the year when the coin was issued or minted. During the first two years of issuance (2007-2008), the Presidential Dollars also had the motto IN GOD WE TRUST on the edge. It was only in 2008 that the said motto was transferred on the obverse.

The Presidential Dollars were composed of 88.5% Copper, 6% Zinc, 3.5% Manganese and 2% Nickel – the same composition for Native American $1 coins and the Sacagawea Dollar. These have lettered edges, weighs approximately 8.10 grams and are 26.50 millimeters in diameter. The US Mints in Philadelphia and Denver produces the currency strikes while the San Francisco Mint produces Proof coins meant for coin collectors.  

The Presidential $1 Coin Program started in 2007 with Presidents George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and the last issue were of Presidents Richard M. Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan. Under the provision of the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005, a President may only be featured on the Presidential Coin if they have already been deceased for at least two years.

The Presidential $1 Coin Releases, Mintages, Mintmark, Year and Varieties

George Washington Presidential Dollar

Дмитрий Никонов, 1 dollar George Washington, Size by Bonnie Mattie, CC BY-SA 3.0

This was the very first Presidential Dollar ever minted and first issued in 2007. The coin features a portrait of President George Washington, his name on top of his portrait, 1st PRESIDENT and 1789-1797 on the bottom. The obverse was designed by Joseph Menna while Don Everhart designed the reverse. The George Washington Presidential Dollar has the highest mintage of over 300 million pieces.

However, since the last time the US Mint has minted coins with edge-incused inscriptions, some were mistakenly issued without the lettering on the edges. Coin collectors learned of this and eagerly flocked banks to get ahold of the rare error coin.
