These coins are the third of the 2013 Presidential dollars and the 27th overall since the Presidential $1 Coin Program debuted in 2007.

As directed by the Treasury Secretary in late 2011, dollar coins are no longer produced for use in commerce but only for coin collectors. New products for release Tuesday include rolls, bags and boxes of the William Howard Taft Presidential dollars in circulating quality. This is the same quality of coins found in circulation, though those in these products will have gone straight from production to their packaging and will be in good condition. The coin collecting products and their prices include:

2013-P Presidential $1 Coin 25-Coin Roll


2013-D Presidential $1 Coin 25-Coin Roll


2013-P Presidential $1 Coin 100-Coin Bag


2013-D Presidential $1 Coin 100-Coin Bag


2013-P Presidential $1 Coin 250-Coin Box


2013-D Presidential $1 Coin 250-Coin Box


2013-P Presidential $1 Coin 500-Coin Box


2013-D Presidential $1 Coin 500-Coin Box



These coins have mint marks of either ‘P’ or ‘D’, representing the United States Mint facilities where they were produced — ‘P’ for the Philadelphia Mint and ‘D’ for the Denver Mint. The designating mint mark is found on the edge of each $1 coin. Edges also have the date ‘2013 and the words ‘E PLURIBUS UNUM’.
