A circulating coin is a coin used in daily life as money. You might have some at home in your piggy bank! Circulating coins show the faces of famous people, most of them presidents.
Native American $1 Coins
Since 2009, the United States Mint has issued a yearly Native American $1 Coin. The image of Sacagawea, the Native American who helped Lewis and Clark on their historic voyage of exploration, is on the front (obverse) of the coin. The back (reverse) has a different image each year to highlight Native Americans and their contributions.
America the Beautiful Quarters
In 2010, the Mint began to issue the quarters in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. By the time the program ends in 2021, there will be a total of 56 coins released. Each design features a different national site in each state, territory, and the District of Columbia.
