Presidential Dollar Release Dates

Presidential Dollar Release Dates

Presidential Dollars are scheduled to be released at a rate of four designs per year. The current schedule runs from 2007 to 2016, presenting the former Presidents of the United States in the order served.

The authorizing legislation for the program provides that Presidential Dollars will only be issued to honor deceased Presidents. No coin may be issued to honor living, current, and any deceased former President during the two year period following the date of death.

Presidents who served two non consecutive terms as President are entitled to two separate coins. The only President to fall into this category is Grover Cleveland.

The following schedule lists the known circulation release dates for coins of the series. Dates listed for unreleased coins are tentative and may be subject to change.

Starting in 2012, the release of Presidential Dollars for general circulation was suspended. Release dates for this and subsequent years indicate the date when the United States Mint will first offer the coins for sale within numismatic bags, rolls, and boxes. The dates included for the 2013 releases are preliminary and may be subject to change.
