by Coin Collecting News on January 2, 2013

Coin designs for the upcoming 2013 Presidential Dollars feature portraits of the 25th through 28th Presidents of the United States.

2013 Presidential Dollar Coin Designs

2013 Presidential Dollar Coin Designs. These are designs on $1 coins presented within several United States Mint coin collecting products in 2013.

Specifically, the newly released images show the obverse or "heads side" coin designs of William McKinley Presidential Dollars scheduled for release on Feb. 19, 2013; Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Dollars set to launch in April 2013; William Howard Taft Presidential Dollars with a release date in July 2013; and Woodrow Wilson Presidential Dollars scheduled to launch in October 2013.

Below are line-art coin designs and descriptions for the President dollars. Release dates are also listed again. Since the Treasury Secretary in late 2011 ordered that new $1 coins could no longer enter circulation through Federal Reserve Banks, the release dates are when the U.S. Mint will begin selling the specific 2013 Presidential Dollar in coin collecting products of 25-coin rolls, 100-coin bags, 250-coin boxes and 500-coin boxes.

Reverse Coin Designs and Edge Letterings

The U.S. Mint’s Presidential $1 Coin Program debuted in 2007. Ever since then, the reverse or "tails side" coin designs have featured the same depiction of the Statue of Liberty as created by Don Everhart. Inscriptions include $1 and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Since 2009, edge letterings on each dollar include the year of minting, the mint mark, and E PLURIBUS UNUM. In 2007 and 2008, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was on the edge. Complaints about the placement resulted in the motto’s move to the obverse of each coin beginning in 2009.

$1s in 2013 Coin Collecting Products

In addition to offering the Presidential dollars in rolls, bags and boxes, several other coin collecting products with them launch in 2013. Some of these include the 2013 Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set, the silver and clad 2013 Proof Sets, the 2013 Mint Set, the 2013 Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set, the $1 Four-Coin Sets, the Presidential Coin Covers and the Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Sets.

Where can a person purchase individual coins to fill the books the banks gave out to teach our children.

Ginger, now that $1 coins are no longer produced for circulation, local banks will not have them.
The U.S. Mint at does sells bags, rolls and boxes of the dollars when they are released. That is the easiest, least expensive means of getting them.

Hi, I just bought a roll of Theodore Roosevelt dollars and when I got home and was putting them away with all the others I noticed they are silver in color instead of Gold. Are they all going to be that way from now on??? Thanks, Pam
