The United States Mint on Wednesday, September 10, started selling new $1 Coin Covers with Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential dollars.
This is the 32nd release from the Mint’s America Presidency $1 Coin Cover Series and honors the 32nd President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Sold at a regular price of $19.95 with a 10% discount given to subscribers, each cover has two Presidential $1 Coins — one from the Philadelphia Mint and one from the Denver Mint. They are mounted on a display card which is held within an envelope.
Both coins were minted on the first day of production at their respective striking locations. The first day of minting in Denver was April 14, 2014. The coin went into production in Philadelphia on March 5, 2014.
The front side of the display card features a portrait of President Roosevelt and the postmark of September 10, 2014, Hyde Park, NY — denoting the first day the Franklin D. Roosevelt $1 Coin Cover was issued and where Roosevelt grew up. The back of the display card offers information about FDR, the dollar coins and the cover itself.
Designs on FDR Presidential $1 Coins
Designed by Joseph Menna, obverses or "heads side" of the dollar depict a likeness of Roosevelt with surrounding inscriptions that read: FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, IN GOD WE TRUST, 32nd PRESIDENT and 1933-1945 for the years he was in office.
Presidential $1 Coins share common reverses featuring Don Everhart’s rendition of the Statue of Liberty with inscriptions of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the denomination of $1.
Also common to dollar coins are inscriptions incused around edges that show the year of minting, the mint mark for the U.S. Mint facility making it (‘P’ for the Philadelphia Mint and ‘D’ for the Denver Mint) and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
