Today, February 14, 2013 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin sales for the 2013 Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set. This will represent the first availability of this year’s designs for the Presidential Dollar Program.
Each set will include proof versions of the 2013 Presidential Dollars featuring William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and Woodrow Wilson, the 25th through 28th Presidents of the United States. The obverse design of each coin contains a portrait of the President, while the reverse contains a rendition of the Statue of Liberty designed by Don Everhart.
The four coins are packaged in a single plastic lens, placed in an outer box with certificate of authenticity. The Mint has redesigned the packaging for the product, adding a ghosted image of the White House and line art for the obverse designs on the front of the box. The back of the box contains portraits of each President and images of the coins. As with the America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set, this product has now undergone several packaging changes since introduction.
Each 2013 Presidential Dollars Proof Set is priced at $18.95 plus applicable shipping and handling. This is the same price that was charged for the prior year set. There are no stated product limits or household ordering limits.
This year’s set goes on sale earlier than the prior year set, which had gone on sale April 24. The 2012 set sold out in December with last reported sales of 249,298 units.
