On Thursday, May 1, 2014, the United States Mint released its 2014 Calvin Coolidge $1 Coin Cover for the regular price of $19.95 and the subscription price of $17.95.
This marks the 30th issue from the American Presidency $1 Coin Cover Series and it honors Coolidge who was the 30th President of the United States.
Coin Covers hold two Calvin Coolidge Presidential $1 Coins from the first day of production. One of the dollars was struck on Jan. 6 at the Denver Mint and the other was struck on Jan. 21 at the Philadelphia Mint.
As seen in the topmost image, the face of the display card features a portrait of President Coolidge, the United States A Flag for All Seasons (Forever®) stamp and a postmark of May 1, 2014, Plymouth, VT. The postmark highlights the day of the coin cover’s issue and the location is a reminder of Coolidge’s childhood home.
As seen to the right, backs of the coin covers offer information about the president, the $1 coin and the cover.
Design of Calvin Coolidge Presidential $1 Coin
Obverses (heads side) of Calvin Coolidge Presidential $1 Coins feature a profile likeness of President Coolidge as designed and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. Inscriptions around the portrait read: CALVIN COOLIDGE, IN GOD WE TRUST, 30th PRESIDENT and 1923 – 1929.
Reverse (tails side) of all Presidential dollars have a rendition of the Statue of Liberty as designed and sculpted by Don Everhart with surrounding inscriptions of "United States of America" and "$1."
Edges of dollar coins have letterings of "2014," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and the mint mark "P" or "D."
