Today, February 5, 2015 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin accepting orders for products containing circulating quality Harry S. Truman Presidential Dollars. This will represent the first release of the year and the thirty-third release overall for the Presidential $1 Coin Program.
The obverse design of the Harry S. Truman Dollar features a portrait of the president designed and engraved by Don Everhart. Inscriptions include “Harry S. Truman”, “In God We Trust”, “33rd President”, and the dates served “1945-1953”. In the design selection phase, this design had been supported by both the Commission of Fine Arts and Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee.
The reverse of the coin carries the image of the Statue of Liberty intended to represent Liberty, which was also designed and engraved by Don Everhart. The inscriptions include “United States of America” and the denomination expressed as “$1”.
The coins also include edge incused lettering with the motto “E Pluribus Unum”, the date, and mint mark. Under the authorizing legislation, these inscriptions were to be placed on the edge of the coin in order to provided additional space for larger and more dramatic artwork.
The products available today contain circulating quality examples of the 2015 Harry S. Truman Presidential Dollar from either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint facilities in either 25-coin rolls priced at $32.95 each, 100-coin bags priced at $111.95 each, or 250-coin boxes priced at $275.95 each. The price levels are unchanged from the prior year. All products feature packaging which contains the name of the President, the face value of the contents, and the mint mark.
There are no stated product or ordering limits imposed. Customer demand will determine the number of coins minted. Since 2012, newly released Presidential Dollars have not been distributed for general circulation and have only been available within numismatic products.
