Presidential $1 Coin Program

The Presidential $1 Coin Program is part of an Act of Congress, Template:USStatute, which directs the United States Mint to produce $1 coins with portraits of U.S. presidents.

From 2007 to 2011, presidential $1 coins were minted for circulation in large numbers, resulting in a large stockpile of unused $1 coins. Since 2012, new presidential coins have been minted only for collectors.
