The US Mint has once again expanded the offerings for Presidential Dollars available under the new Direct Ship Program. Now George Washington and Andrew Jackson Coins are both available on the Mint’s website.
Under the program, Presidential Dollars can be purchased at face value with no additional cost for shipping. The purpose of the program is to promote the circulation of the new dollar coins. Coins must be purchased in quantities of $250, with a maximum of $500 per President.
Whether or not the coins purchased under the program actually make it to circulation is up for speculation, but the program is certainly a boon for coin collectors. The program offers an excellent alternative to paying high premiums for coins under the Mint’s Bags & Rolls program, or attempting to find rolls at local banks.
Offering George Washington and Andrew Jackson Presidential Dollars is extremely fortunate. This represents the first and the most recent release under the program. These are two issues that coin collectors may be hunting for.
All Presidential Dollars available under the program can be found on the Mint’s website here.
