Today, February 26, 2015, the United States Mint began accepting orders for the 2015 Harry S. Truman $1 Coin Cover. This represents the thirty-third issue within the ongoing American Presidency $1 Coin Cover Series.
Each cover includes two 2015 Harry S. Truman Presidential Dollars sourced from the first day of production at the Philadelphia and Denver Mint facilities, which occurred on November 17, 2014. The coins are mounted on a display card and placed within an envelope illustrated with an image of the President against flag imagery.
The cover includes a U.S. Red, White, and Blue Forever stamp postmarked February 26, 2015, Lamar, MO. The date represents the day that the coin cover was released by the United States Mint and the location is the birthplace of President Truman.
The Harry S. Truman Coin Cover is priced at $19.95, which is unchanged from the prior year.
The maximum production for the covers is 15,000 units. This is a decrease from the maximum established for the prior year covers and down significantly from the start of the program.
The American Presidency $1 Coin Cover series began in 2007 when the issues were limited to 50,000 units. The limit was lowered to 40,000 for the 2009 issues, lowered to 32,000 for the 2009 issues, lowered to 22,000 for the 2011 issues, and lowered to 20,000 for the 2013 issues. During the course of the series, some of the better known President have had higher limits based on anticipated demand. If the past precedent is followed, higher limits may be in store for this year’s covers featuring Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy.
