Assessing the Price and Value of Presidential Dollar Coins


Since 2007, the U.S. Mint has issued Presidential Dollar coins, which were initially met with great enthusiasm from the public. However, demand for the coins eventually waned, resulting in a surplus of coins stored in government vaults. This article will explore the history and features of Presidential Dollars.

1. Coin Market Analysis

On December 22nd, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Presidential Coin Program into law, authorizing the production of Presidential Dollars to honor former U.S. Presidents who had been deceased for at least two years. This program provided an opportunity to explore the history of presidential coins.

The Presidential $1 Coin Program, which ran from 2007 to 2011, saw the issuance of dollar coins in honor of former presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, and Barack Obama. However, none of these presidents are eligible to receive coins during the term of this program.

President coins feature a presidential engraving on the obverse and the Statue of Liberty on the reverse. Along the edge of the coin are printed letters indicating the year of production, mint mark, stars, etc. In 2009, due to public outcry, the In God We Trust motto was moved from the left side to the right side of the coin.


In 2012, the US Mint restricted coin production to numismatic products, making the new coins in the series available only to cent collectors. In 2020, Congress passed legislation extending the series for one year to commemorate George H. W. Bush and his wife, Barbara.

The market for presidential quarters is highly accessible, with uncirculated coins widely available from coin traders for only slightly more than their face value. Millions of dollars worth of these coins have been manufactured and, as they are not used in everyday commerce, they are easy to acquire.

2. Key Dates, Rarities, and Varieties

Familiarity with the key dates, rarities, and varieties of presidential coins is essential for understanding the potential value of these coins. By consulting the current market prices, collectors can gain insight into the current trends in presidential dollar coin values.

If you are uncertain as to whether you possess valuable coins, it is advisable to seek the counsel of an expert. It should be noted, however, that not all coin traders are knowledgeable in all coins; thus, you may need to visit multiple dealers before finding one who is sufficiently versed in presidential dollars to identify your coin.

Presidential dollars that are worth significantly more than their face value are often imitated by counterfeiters. To ensure the authenticity of such coins, it is important to learn how to differentiate them or to consult an expert numismatist.

3. Mint Marks

Edge lettering is a defining feature of the United States Mint’s Presidential Dollar coins. Referred to as “edge inscription,” this element has generated considerable debate and resulted in the release of some unique error coins. Upon the initial issuance of the Presidential Dollar in 2007, the edge lettering consisted of four elements:

  • The date.
  • Mint marks.
  • The dictum “E Pluribus Unum”.
  • The dictum “In God We Trust”.

The Presidential Dollar series of coins, minted in Philadelphia (P), San Francisco (S), and Denver (D), feature a mint mark on the side of the coin, following the year. These coins have become popular among collectors due to their unique design and features. An example of the mint mark is shown in the image below.


4. Average Circulated and Uncirculated Values and Prices

Uncirculated coins are those that have never been used in circulation, and they typically have no signs of wear or damage. As such, they are often more valuable than circulated coins, which have been used in circulation and may show signs of wear or damage. The average value and price of uncirculated coins can vary significantly depending on the coin’s condition, rarity, and other factors. Circulated coins, on the other hand, typically have a lower value and price due to their condition.

Circulated coins are those that have been used in commerce, regardless of any minor wear or damage. In contrast, an uncirculated coin is one that has not been circulated in the economy.

The table below provides average circulated and uncirculated values and prices for presidential dollar coins. Entries with no value or price are denoted by “-“, indicating that there is insufficient data to determine the average values and prices of the coins. This does not necessarily mean that the coins are particularly rare.
