William Henry Harrison $1 Coin CoverWilliam Henry Harrison $1 Coin Covers are now available from US Mint. These limited edition covers include two Harrison Presidential $1 coins that were minted on the first day of production.

One dollar is from the Mint’s Denver facility and was struck on Jan. 5. The other is from its Philadelphia location and was produced on Jan. 8.

The presidential covers are priced at $14.95, plus $4.95 for standard shipping and handling. Only 40,000 have been made and there is no household order limit in place.

In addition to the two $1 coins, the display card includes a 42-cent Flags 24/7 postage stamp with a postmark of February 19, 2009, North Bend, OH. That is the day Harrison $1 Coins were released to the public.
