United States Mint Discontinues Presidential $1 Coin Album

February 15, 2011

WASHINGTON — The United States Mint today announced that it is discontinuing future volumes of the Official United States Mint Coin Album – Presidential $1 Coins™.

The custom–designed album was intended to be released in multiple volumes throughout the life of the Presidential $1 Coin Program. Volume One (2007–2008) was issued in 2007 and Volume Two (2009–2010) in 2009. While Volume One was popular, sales of Volume Two dropped substantially. The United States Mint will continue to sell Volumes One and Two of the Official United States Mint Coin Album – Presidential $1 Coins until existing inventories are depleted. Subsequent volumes of the album (2011 –2012 and beyond) will not be produced.

The folder allows collectors to store and display one coin each in the series of Presidential $1 Coins. For more information, visit http://www.usmint.gov/catalog or call 1–800–USA–MINT (872–6468).
