WASHINGTON — The United States Mint today announced that the official United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set, containing the new Presidential $1 Coins honoring George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, will be available beginning at noon on June 21, 2007, for $14.95.
This set contains the first four Presidential $1 Coins, all struck multiple times with specially polished dies to create the brilliant, sharp relief and mirror–like background of a proof coin. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special “cameo” effect, created by the exacting proof process.

Congress authorized and the President signed the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 (Act). The Act requires the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue $1 coins honoring the United States Presidents in the order in which they served, with four new designs annually.
Each President will be honored with a single Presidential $1 Coin, regardless of the number of consecutive terms he served, except for Grover Cleveland, the only United States President to serve non–consecutive terms. He will be honored on two coins. No living, former or current President can be honored on a coin.
