Each coin in the series is anticipated to have a Proof version. These coins follow the release schedule of their circulating counterparts, typically unveiling all four annual designs simultaneously at the start of each year. The 2020 George H.W. Bush Presidential Dollar is the only exception. Instead, the Mint released Reverse Proof version.

Proof quality coins are created by the U.S. Mint through a special production process. The coins are struck multiple times from specially prepared dies, which create sharp features and a cameo finish. The raised design elements appear frosted, while the background fields appear mirrored. As a result, the portraits and lettering appear to float on reflective, liquid-like fields. All Proof coins are currently produced at the San Francisco Mint and bear the “S” mint mark.
