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