Earlier today, Feb. 3, the United States Mint released the first of three 2016-dated Presidential dollars. This newest coin memorializes Richard M. Nixon who served as the 37th President of the United States from 1969 to 1974. Product options available include rolls, bags and boxes of the dollars in circulating quality.

The United States Mint is now selling rolls, bags and boxes of 2016 Richard M. Nixon Presidential $1 Coins

Since 2007, the U.S. Mint has released four dollars annually as part of the Presidential $1 Coin series which commemorates deceased U.S. Presidents in the order in which they served. Appearing later in the year and in ending the program are dollars honoring Gerald R. Ford and Ronald Reagan.

Designs of 2016 Nixon Presidential Dollars

Selected from among four design candidates with the winning design unveiled on Dec. 4, the heads or obverse side of the Nixon dollar offers a portrait of the president that Don Everhart both created and sculpted. Inscribed above the effigy is RICHARD M. NIXON with IN GOD WE TRUST, 37TH PRESIDENT and 1969-1974 circling underneath.

Presidential $1 Coins share the same reverse (tails side) design showcasing the Statue of Liberty, also by Everhart. The statue is joined on the reverse by the inscriptions of $1 and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Reverses of Presidential $1 Coins

Reverses of all Presidential dollars feature a rendition of the Statue of Liberty. They also share edge letterings of E PLURIBUS UNUM, the year, and mint mark.

E PLURIBUS UNUM, the year of minting and a mintmark are inscribed on the edge of the coin. On circulation quality coins like those issued today, edge inscriptions vary in location.

Specifications for the coin include a manganese-brass composition of 88.5% copper, 6% zinc, 3.5% manganese and 2% nickel. Each dollar weighs 8.1 grams, has a diameter of 26.49 mm, or 1.043 inches, and a thickness of 2.0 mm.

25-Coin Rolls, 100-Coin Bags and 250-Coin Boxes

Six products are available for the Nixon $1 coins. They are listed in the chart below along with their pricing:

PRODUCT OPTIONS PRICE
Presidential $1 Coin 25-Coin Roll – P $32.95

These products feature packaging that bears the president’s name, the mint of origin and the total face value of the contents. In addition, buyers should keep in mind that a mechanical process fills the rolls so a coin’s heads or tails side may be visible, or both at the same time.

Just the subject matter, Jim.

David –

LOL. Too funny! This is the U.S. Mint’s new “Dick Dollar”! The infamous president Richard Milhous “Dick” Nixon. He is still burning in Hell last I heard. Who would have thought that his closest advisor Henry Kissinger would still be alive to see his former boss on a legal tender USA coin!? Thank G-d these coins will not be issued for circulation. Nixon took the U.S. off the Gold Standard & it is ironic that his image is on a 4-metal base alloy $1golden-colored coin now!
Political campaign buttons said “I Like Ike” but “I Like Dick” buttons must be out there somewhere. How many “Dicks” are you guys buying from the Mint?!

100 years from now all of this won’t mean anything to those alive but a complete set will be worth more than a set without the 37th President. One would hope that by then the US also won’t still be printing $1 bills.

/* One would hope that by then the US also won’t still be printing $1 bills. */

If Crane Paper were in the coin business instead of banknotes, we’d still have half-cents and half-dimes.

And in a hundred years we’ll still be the only country using feet and pounds, too. But that’s a different thread….

Thank God we still use Feet and Pound measures…..if you like metric measures why don’t you move to a nice liberal country like Venezuela. I bet they could care less about what unit of measure their using, as a matter of fact I bet they wish they had a yard stick to use as toilet paper. Get a grip. Love it or leave it commie, love it or leave it.
