Presidential Dollars (2007-2016, 2020)
Celebrate America's historical presidents with our collection of Presidential dollar coins for sale at Littleton Coin Company. Popular among coin enthusiasts, this series of $1 Presidential coins began in 2007, honoring four U.S. presidents per year in order of service – but was limited by law to presidents deceased for at least two years before the issue of their coins. The extensive program began with the George Washington Presidential dollar and initially ended with the Ronald Reagan dollar in 2016. However, it resumed when another dollar was released in 2020 honoring George H. W. Bush.
Here you'll find an extensive selection of Uncirculated and Proof $1 Presidential coins. As well as handsomely colorized versions and Littleton Coin's exclusive "Modern Presidents" coins, which let you expand your collection to include those presidents still living. Browse single coins and sets in a wide range of years, mint marks and grades. You can even buy Presidential dollar coins in various presentation types, including display cases and Littleton's exclusive Showpak® holders.
More About Presidential Coins
Featuring a pure copper core and outer layer of manganese brass, these golden-colored Presidential coins are slightly larger than a quarter and depict the featured president on the obverse. The common reverse bears a dramatic image of the Statue of Liberty, and the series introduced the first edge lettering on circulating U.S. coins since the Saint-Gaudens $20 gold pieces of 1907-1933.
Though Presidential dollars failed to gain wide acceptance in daily commerce, the series has proved to be a favorite among coin enthusiasts, and a complete Presidential dollar collection is an attractive and affordable goal. See Littleton’s Presidential Dollars Checklist for a complete listing of Presidential dollars.
First Spouse Coins Complement Presidential Dollar Coins
The U.S. Mint also released First Spouse coins struck in 1/2 oz. of 99.99% pure gold to complement the Presidential dollars. Each First Spouse is depicted on their coin's obverse, with a design symbolic of their life and work on the reverse. Though Presidential dollar coins were limited to presidents deceased at least two years, the First Spouse series included a 2016 Nancy Reagan coin issued just four months after her death – and would likely have included her even if she were still alive.
