WASHINGTON – The United States Mint today announced that the official United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set, containing the new Presidential $1 Coins honoring George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, will be available beginning at noon on June 21, 2007, for $14.95.

This set contains the first four Presidential $1 Coins, all struck multiple times with specially polished dies to create the brilliant, sharp relief and mirror-like background of a proof coin. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special “cameo” effect, created by the exacting proof process.

Congress authorized and the President signed the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 (Act). The Act requires the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue $1 coins honoring the United States Presidents in the order in which they served, with four new designs annually.

Each President will be honored with a single Presidential $1 Coin, regardless of the number of consecutive terms he served, except for Grover Cleveland, the only United States President to serve non-consecutive terms. He will be honored on two coins. No living, former or current President can be honored on a coin.
