WASHINGTON — The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2011 Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set at noon Eastern Time (ET) on April 27, 2011. This year’s set contains coins honoring Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes and James Garfield on the obverses (heads side).
The 2011 Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set, priced at $19.95, contains eight coins–four each from the United States Mint facilities at Philadelphia (“P” mint mark) and Denver (“D” mint mark). The reverse (tails side) of each coin features a striking rendition of the iconic Statue of Liberty, common to all Presidential $1 Coins. Each coin is encased in a protective, rotatable blister, allowing full visibility of the edge–incused inscriptions E PLURIBUS UNUM, 2011 and the mint mark. The inscription IN GOD WE TRUST is displayed on the obverse. The coins are mounted in an attractive folder that includes brief biographical sketches and portraits of each President.
Orders will be accepted at http://www.usmint.gov/catalog, or at 1–800–USA–MINT (872–6468). A fee of $4.95 will be added to all domestic orders for shipping and handling.
