These Presidential $1 Coins – with circulating finishes minted at the U.S. Mint at Denver and Philadelphia – have never been placed into circulation. Featuring edge-incused inscriptions of the year, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and the mint mark, the Kennedy $1 coin presents a new, eye-catching likeness of President Kennedy on the obverse (heads) and has a common reverse (tails) design featuring a dramatic perspective of the Statue of Liberty.

Join us on our Summer Road Trip as we travel to the next stop on the America the Beautiful Quarters Program , Kisatchie National Forest.

Hidden in the bayous underneath the bald cypress groves and old growth pine lies a world of natural beauty, excitement and recreation. Established as a national site in 1936, the name Kisatchie is derived from a tribe of Kichai Indians of the Caddoan Confederacy.

Look for the 2015 Coin and Chronicles Set – Harry S. Truman on June 30th! This unique keepsake will feature a Presidential $1 Reverse Proof Coin—only available as a part of this set—along with a silver presidential medal, stamp and companion informational booklet. They are all displayed in a rich red folder covered in a soft-touch material with a handsome textured look that makes an excellent gift.

And did you know that Truman, a World War I veteran, led the effort to establish a single day of commemoration for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their service? Armed Forces Day, May 16, was created to celebrate the unification of all the branches of the military under the Department of Defense.

The 2015 American Liberty
High Relief Gold Coin

WEST POINT (W)

The United States Mint fulfilled renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ original vision of an ultra-high relief double eagle gold coin with the release of the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin, closing one era of classic American coin design and ushering in a new one. The 2015 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin is the latest in that new era, a piece that renders contemporary designs using the latest in modern digital and manufacturing technology. The 2015 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin represents our proud numismatic heritage and glimmering future at their very best. Containing one troy ounce of .9999 fine 24-karat gold, these lustrous high relief coins are among the world’s purest gold coins. It will be a treasured addition to any collection.
Coming Soon!
