WASHINGTON — The United States Mint will open sales for the Grover Cleveland $1 Coin Cover (second term) at noon Eastern Time (ET) on December 18. The limited edition coin cover includes two circulating quality coins honoring President Cleveland’s second term in office from the first day of mintage at the United States Mint – May 16, 2012, for the Denver facility and May 1, 2012, for the Philadelphia facility. The coins are mounted on a handsome display card with a 45–cent postage stamp. (Because Cleveland served as both the 22nd and 24th Presidents, he is featured on two Presidential $1 Coins.)
