Calvin Coolidge Presidential Dollar Rolls, Bags, and Boxes

Today, April 10, 2014 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint opened sales for circulating quality 2014 Calvin Coolidge Presidential Dollars in rolls, bags, and boxes. This represents the second release of the year and the 30th release overall within the Presidential $1 Coin Program.

Calvin Coolidge Presidential Dollar

The obverse design of the coin features a portrait of Calvin Coolidge designed and engraved by Phebe Hemphill. This design was recommended by both the Commission of Fine Arts and Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee with the groups calling it the best likeness, which captured the character of the former President. The portrait is surrounded by the required inscriptions “Calvin Coolidge”, “In God We Trust”, “30th President”, and the period of service “1923-1929”.

The reverse features an image of the Statue of Liberty intended to symbolize the concept of Liberty. Inscriptions include “United States of America” and the denomination expressed as “$1”. This design by Don Everhart has been used for the reverse design across all issues of the series.

Incused edge inscriptions contain the “2014” date of issue, the mint mark, and the motto “E Pluribus Unum”.

The United States Mint is offered circulating quality Calvin Coolidge Presidential Dollars struck at either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint. Product options from each mint include 25-coin rolls priced at $32.95 each, 100-coin bags priced at $111.95 each, and 250-coin boxes priced at $275.95 each. All products feature packaging which contains the President’s name, the face value of the contents, and the mint mark.

There are no stated product limits or household ordering limits imposed. Recent circulating coin production figures for the Calvin Coolidge Dollar indicate production of 4.48 million pieces at the Philadelphia Mint and 3.78 million pieces at the Denver Mint, for a total of 8.26 million coins. Starting with the 2012-dated issues, Presidential Dollars have not been released to the channels of circulation, but only distributed in numismatic products.

The US Mint indicates that the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Dollar products will remain available for one year from the initial on sale date or until inventory is depleted prior to the one-year period. This availability information has been provided for Presidential Dollars bags, rolls, and boxes issued from 2013 onwards, however the US Mint has not adhered to sales cut off date. Most of the William McKinley products, which went on sale February 19, 2013, still remain available for sale.

Today, the US Mint also began sales for the 2014-W Uncirculated Silver Eagles. Coverage of this product will be provided in a separate post.

    I do not consider myself a flipper but it by flipping one of the golds I differed the cost of my coin. I’m still going be hard pressed to get a Kennedy, but if it was not for the flip I would have just gotten the HOF, and forgotten about the Kennedy. I guess I could be the poster boy for his article, but unlike Dave I don’t expect to collect it all, and I don’t expect my monetary limitations to affect other collectors. You yourself hated the HOF coin, and did not buy it, so imagine based on the HOF coin the mint announced, no Kennedy this year folks we made too many gold coins as it is, or we are just going to make a clad dual date Kennedy and sell it for $20.

    Anyway their is nothing to stop you from going through you spare change to get coins. The hobby is only expensive to those of us who want PM in a quality coin. You want cheap ASE coins then buy then in bullion, who says you have to have the proof. Let me get off my soap box.

  2. says

    Yes, I don’t completely trust Dave Harper’s opinion pieces.

    He’s done some good stuff, but I thought the gold Kennedy article was fantastically off-base and there’s been a couple other articles by him in the past that made me go “what?” In general I find stuff by Michael (when he chooses to write an opinion as opposed to raw news) and Louis to be more likely to be on the mark, and when they’re wrong I usually find that at least their reasoning for their opinion was sound.

  3. Sith says

    Not worth for me as I would just order one and I will not buy it in bulk. The subscription saves you about $5 but that is the shipping cost, as I’m buying other things it only costs me a about another dollar to buy it with another product and I don’t have to worry about the subscription.

    The dealers were already buying in bulk, but not sure why the decrease in orders.

  4. Sith says

    They were back ordered from the get go, and they were hard to visualize, maybe now that people have seem them they will pick up but with the new offerings…

  5. Sith says

    Yes, Dave article is based on the fact that “Online prices already seem to be buckling. The only question is how fast.” That is not what I’m seeing on E-bay. I see prices for the silver sky rocketing, and the gold is at least stable if not trending upwards. That is not to say they will not go down, but they have not done so yet.

  6. Frankie says

    Just received my ATB’s – one is flawless, the other has some rim damage and the third has a 2mm long ding on reverse… I doubt the mint has ANY QC. I’m really tired of having to return stuff – that’s such a waste of my time.

  7. Steve says

    “Online prices are already buckling?” Has he even looked on Ebay? What a joke article.

  8. joe says

    There’s an old saying: “The first dollar is the best dollar.” There is no doubt that the HoF coins have a large amount of (positive) emotion tied to them…especially in this blog. With emotion comes inflated opinions of a coin(s) valuation. I don’t think selling now is a bad idea. I doubt the lofty expectations for these coins is going to become reality (at least in the short term) as MCM, etal flood the market with these coins in a few days…graded or otherwise. Yeah…I agree that they were a no-brainer to grab if you purchased them directly from the Mint; however, it may also have been a prudent move on Sith’s part to unload them while people are snapping them up at double RRP. JMO.

    what i see is, gold coin price is increasing after people see the coin with their own eyes.
    for silver, i would say, many people did not order the silver at the beginning, so they arrive late, so the in hand ones are expensive.

    remember the gold pre-sale was $575?

  10. MarkInFlorida says

    That might sound good today, but I have a feeling the prices will go much higher once the baseball fans find out about them.

  11. coolbowser says

    Anybody willing to trade a $5 gold proof HOF NGC Early Release for a $5 gold uncirculated HOF NGC Early Release?

  12. coolbowser says

    I forgot to mention a grade of 70. That would be a trade for a MS for a Proof both graded 70 and Early releases.

  13. Dan in Fla says

    Michael Please change back to old format if possible. This layout is too hard to follow.

  14. ClevelandRocks says

    No. This new format sucks!
    It’s like trying to watch a show that is scrambled.
    I think Michael wants me off the blog IMHO

  15. SilverFan says

    Just buy the bullion version, and any minor imperfections will not bother you as much.

  16. Samuel says

    this yr i probably wont buy the bullion version. because the Unc version is only <$20 more expensive.

  17. DCDave says

    “Michael Please change back to old format if possible. This layout is too hard to follow.”
    100% agree.

    Also, most posts on this “Coolidge Dollar” thread are not about the Coolidge Dollar.
    Those interested in your blog like to read the latest comments first.

    The comments on Michael’s blog have become an disorganized mess!

  18. VABEACHBUM says

    Very valid points, C.O.

    I would love to see a JFK C&C; maybe as a presentation options for four, Ag PR half-dollars from the four respective Mints. At the moment I cannot recall if JFK had any other Commemoratives and/or Medals that were struck to recognize him.

    Good news and better good news! I need to make a correction to a post I made the other day concerning the ATBs. I have 5 seperate subscriptions for the 5 oz ATBs and a couple days ago was charged $145 and 4x $140 so I had assumed that all my pucks were going to be merged into one shipment. That now appears not to be the case. Today I received one of the five and the site has a different tracking number for each of the five. So I got (or will get) them as I wanted – each in their own box. Saved $20 in shipping too – nice. I think we’re looking at a final mintage of 20-21k for GSMoutains.

    Better news; Yesterday I got an email from UPS alerting me of a package from the US Mint. Only thing possible would be my 3/27 12:07p order for the UNC gold. Went to the site and it still had the bag and coin as in stock reserved. Today it finally changed to shipping. I was very excited yesterday but it now appears this package is only the bag but it does mean I’ll be getting my UNC finally! So soon I should have 1 of the 18k full 6 coin sets! Well I mean my 2 month old son will – should of ordered me one too, lol. I got extra $1 coming though.

    I prefer the old format too for a couple reasons. I primarily use the iPhone 4S to catch up on the blog and the replies are just not designed for this format. They get to be like one word per line and just looks old. I’m sure I miss comments because I just find the last comment I read then go down from there instead of reading it all again. If the phone did a better job of displaying the page then maybe I would try to see if there were new replies to comments.

    “Michael Please change back to old format if possible. This layout is too hard to follow.”
    100% agree.

    OK, let me try the old format but with a slight change. Comments will be displayed chronologically without threading, but broken into 100 comments per page, with the most recent page on top–this will help cut down page load time and all the scrolling.

  21. Sith says

    Michael – One small compliant once you post a comment rather than placing you on the page with the newest comments and seeing your post, the blog sends you back to the page with the oldest comments. If you reload the page it does send you back but just a FYI.

  22. Zaz says

    @Mark Rex: congrats on completing your BBHOF set in hand, or will soon! The Mint almost always comes through on their orders, though I had my doubts with last year’s WP ASE sets, all of which I eventually canceled because it was taking so long. Looks like Novitex might be an improvement on PBGS.

  23. IndenturedServant says

    zaz said: : Looks like Novitex might be an improvement on PBGS.”

    Novitex IS PBGS. They just changed their name. Lipstick on a pig!

    For those of you who collect the signature labels:


    NGC National Baseball Hall of Fame labels featuring authorized facsimile signatures of select Hall of Famers, including Tom Lasorda, Johnny Bench, Wade Boggs, Tony Gwynn, Reggie Jackson, Eddie Murray, Cal Ripken Jr., Nolan Ryan, Ryne Sandberg and Dave Winfield.
    NGC secured licensing rights to include the authorized facsimile signatures.

    The Hall of Fame authorized facsimile signature labels will be available from select retailers when the coins are released to the public. Spiegel did not disclose which NGC-authorized retailers will be offered the facsimile autograph option.


    As part of its Signature series, PCGS has contracted with San Luis Obispo, Calif., artist Cassie McFarland to autograph grading labels that will be included in encapsulations containing Baseball coins.

    McFarland’s baseball glove design was selected as the winner of the public design competition that identified the common design for the concave obverse on each of the three commemorative coin denominations

    I was interested in seeing sort of a low-cost (sub-$100), “for show” set like what was done for Roosevelt.

    I wouldn’t want to load it up with too many silver halves (since we’ll be getting our fill of those this August!), but something like a proof silver half dollar, a proof Kennedy presidential dollar, a JFK medal (like this one:, and maybe the Jackie Kennedy first spouse medal or another JFK medal would make for a nice set.

  26. David says

    These prez dollars are monstrosities. I don’t really consider a coin to be a collectors item if they are only issued to collectors and not issued for circulation. There would be hoards of these in mint condition and I can’t see how they’d ever be valuable. These are some of the ugliest coins out there. The edge lettering is a turn-off.
