The United States Mint certifies these proof coins as genuine Presidential Coins struck in accordance with Public Law 109-145. The Presidential Coin Program was created to honor each of the Nation’s presidents in the order in which they served.
Obverse designs bear a likeness of each president. Source materials for these new presidential portraits include the United States Mint’s Presidential Medal Series designs, official White House portraits and intaglio prints originally executed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The reverse of the new Presidential Coins carries a bold and dramatic image of the Statue of Liberty, extending to the coin’s rim. The Presidential Coins also feature edge-incused lettering, “In God We Trust”, “E Pluribus Unum”, the year of minting or issuance and the mintmark.
Produced by the United States Mint at San Francisco, each proof coin bears the “S” mintmark of that facility. These coins are produced from carefully selected planchets, or coin blanks, that have been burnished to a higher luster. The polished blanks, which are carefully handled to minimize scratches and abrasions, are struck on specially adapted coining presses. Each coin is struck at least twice to ring forth the minutest detail with remarkable clarity.
