While nearly one billion Presidential coins were minted in 2007, finding them in circulation or exchanging for them at banks is often a challenging task. That holds true for this year’s coins as well. Although the U.S. Mint charges a premium, purchasing $1 coins through their secure website is at least doable.
The Mint offers the presidential $1 coins in 250-coin bags and 25-coin rolls that may be purchased with either the Philadelphia, “P”, or Denver, “D”, mint mark.

Later this year on Nov. 13, the fourth and final Presidential $1 coin for 2008 honoring Martin Van Buren will be released. Already launched this year were coins celebrating James Monroe, and John Quincy Adams.
The first four Presidential Dollars issued in 2007 had the images of George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.
