Here are photos of the 2015-P Reverse Proof Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential $1 Coin (obverse or heads side and reverse or tails side). The reverse proof Presidential $1 is the fourth one issued by the U.S. Mint, with the first one in the 2015 Harry S. Truman Coin and Chronicles Set, the second one in the 2015 Dwight D. Eisenhower Coin and Chronicles Set, and the third one in the 2015 John F. Kennedy Coin and Chronicles Set. Opposite of standard proofs, reverse proof coins have frosty fields and raised mirror-like devices.
