2020 Native American $1 Coin Design Next Up On U.S. Mint's Schedule

There have been a number of $1 coins over the years produced by the United States Mint. From back in 1794 to the current day, dollar coins have been produced in a number of different precious metals and compositions as well as having a number of different faces and designs. One of those designs and dollars was first produced at the very beginning of the new century and is now in its 20th year of production in 2020. That dollar? The Native American $1 Coin.

In the year 2000, the Mint released what was then referred to as the Sacagawea Golden Dollar under Public Law 105-124, also known as the United States $1 Coin Act of 1997. The new small-dollar coin featured an image of Sacagawea carrying her infant...read more

100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins Series: 1968, No S, Roosevelt Dime, Proof

One of the most profound Presidents of the United States was that of Franklin D. Roosevelt, or FDR. As the 32nd individual to take the position, Roosevelt was said to have helped the American people regain hope and faith during the most troubling of times. Elected in November of 1932 and sworn in a few months later in 1933, Roosevelt was the leader during the most intense times of the Great Depression. He served as President from 1933 until 1945 when he passed away from ongoing health issues in April of 1945.

Shortly after Roosevelt’s death, his profile was authorized to be on the ten-cent piece, or the dime. Minted from 1946 to the current year, Roosevelt’s high involvement with the March of Dimes organization was the biggest reason for the call to change...read more

2020 Annual Sets From Mint Will Feature 2020-W Jefferson Nickel

Last year the United States Mint decided to do something they had not done before. With the monotonous tendency of the annual coin sets that are released each year, they decided to shake things up when it came to the 2019 Clad Proof Set, 2019 Silver Proof Set, and the 2019 Uncirculated (Mint) Coin Set.

What did they do exactly? Well, they added a coin. It is as simple as that really. What was considered to be a bonus coin to show appreciation for their customers, the Mint decided that an extra 2019 Lincoln Cent was necessary for each set. Sounds pretty mundane, right? Well, they also added a “W” mintmark on the obverse representing West Point and released...read more

2020-W Quarter Dollars With Special Privy Mark Being Struck For Circulation

We have said it before and we will say it again. 2019 was a year that coin collectors, hobbyists, and enthusiasts will be talking about for quite a while. The United States Mint showed up, and we mean really showed up. So get ready for that hyphenated word again because we know it has been worn out but also very fitting for everything we have talked about prior to now: first-ever.

That should be the summary of the Mint’s last year because among the 2019-W Lincoln Cents in three different special finishes, the first Kennedy Half Dollar in an Enhanced Reverse Proof Finish, the first time the Silver Proof Set was struck in all .999 fine silver, and the first-ever limited mintage 2019-S Enhanced Reverse Proof American Silver Eagle, there were...read more

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The opening line of the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence is perhaps the most remembered and well-known line in the complete document itself. As a celebration of the 30th year of American Eagle Platinum Proof coin, the United States Mint decided to design a whole new series around it. The 2018-2020 Preamble to the Declaration of Independence Platinum Proof Coin Series is now in its third and final phase of the program and will be released...read more

Presidential Dollar Still A Possibility for George H.W. Bush

Back in late March of 2019, we released a blog that talked about legislation that was submitted to bring back the Presidential $1 Coin program. But more specifically, the legislation presented wanted to put the late 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, on a coin.

Legislation H.R. 1173 wanted to get rid of the rule that no coin was to bear the image of a former or current President as well as any President that had passed during a 2-year period following their death. Bush died at the age of 94 on November 30, 2018, a few short months after the passing of his wife, Barbara. Articles introduced also wanted to have the coins released in 2019 with an accompanying First Spouse ...read more
