Starting in 2007 the US Mint will be featuring presidents on the dollar coins. Every year four presidents will be featured in the order they took office.

i guess that native american chick wasn’t too popular with the public. I have about 12 of those dollar coins tucked away.

I love the idea of a dollar coin. England uses a great coin for their 1 pound. It’s a great size. I love the thickness of it. It has a great feel to it. I hope these new dollar coins aren’t too big and thin. I think that’s been the key point of failure for previous dollar coins. They just feel cheap.

It’s good to see that unsung presidents will be represented on the dollar coin. Don’t get me wrong. I love Washington, Lincoln and Jefferson, but c’mon. Let’s get some fresh faces in there. It’ll be fun seeing coins of Pierce, Polk, Taylor and so on. an interesting exerpt from spudart’s link based on the announcement that the dollar coin will feature 4 presidents every year.: “Even though it would take about 11 years to honor all the Presidents (George W. Bush is the 43rd President and the act allows for a coin for each of Grover Cleveland’s two non-consecutive terms), the series may not run that long. The act provides that no former President will be depicted on a coin within two years of his death, and the series will end when all the then-eligible Presidents have been honored.”
