They have large, dramatic artwork and edge-incused inscriptions of the year, E PLURIBUS UNUM and the mint mark. Each obverse (heads) shows the name and likeness of a U.S. president, the term of office, the number indicating the order in which the president served and the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST. Each coin has a common reverse (tails) featuring a striking rendition of the Statue of Liberty. The coins in this set can be easily removed from the packaging and placed in albums or other collecting tools. This product is available today!
