2011 Presidential Dollars Images and Release Dates

The line art images and release dates for the 2011 Presidential Dollars are now available from the United States Mint. Next year's coins will feature the former Presidents Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, and James A. Garfield.

This will represent the fifth year and nearly the half-way point for the series. Under the current law, Presidential Dollars are issued for any former President who has been deceased for at least two years. The series continues until all eligible Presidents have been honored.

The legislative requirement that each design of the series must be available through the Federal Reserve System has kept mintages for each release relatively high, despite a growing stockpile of coins within Treasury vaults.

Many collectors report being able to acquire rolls of each new issue from their bank at face value. The Federal Reserve provides banks and financial institutions with a special ordering period surrounding the circulation release date during which unmixed quantities of newly issued coins can be ordered. Such procedures are not in place for the America the Beautiful Quarters.

The obverse design and release date for each of the 2011 Presidential Dollars appears below. The reverse of each coin features the image of the Statue of Liberty designed and sculpted by Don Everhart that has been used for each release of the series.

Lady took her duck to the vet. The vet said it was dead. Lady demanded to know what made him think so. Vet brought in Labrador retriever. Dog sniffed duck from one end to the other looked a vet and left room. Vet brought in a cat. The cat checked out the duck and left the room. Vet said yep, that duck is dead and handed her bill for $150. She said that was an outrageous bill. Vet told her his normal charge is $20 but the extra expense was for the lab report and the cat scan.

Happy Festivus to all of my fellow secular, atheist, and anti-theist fellow collectors!

Many economists are forecasting that US economy will grow stronger in 2011. When that happens, gold prices typically fall. We're starting to see some weakness in the gold and silver markets right now.

With that being said, do you think that the high values of the American Gold Eagles and First Spouse gold coins will hold up? Will the collector coins sustain prices of $1500 and $875 in the long run? Or do you think that the coins are at their current prices because of the value of the bullion?

Uh, oh! I believe I see a bubble pop fly trying to squeeze in under the radar using the cover of "many economists say." Metal will continue to climb (as dollar devalues) as it has for the past 10yrs. Gooberment creating too much money trying to prop up their banking buddies and the banks they control who own declining value (toxic) housing mortgages. The dollar is the best looking horse in the glue factory for now. Barrel of oil at two year high. Price of most commodities going up. As the dollar devalues it devalues the 20 tril debt owed by the gooberment. The Bernanke is just throwing stuff up against the wall to see if anything sticks. Some stuff sticks temporarily but it eventually falls off the wall. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Uh oh!

I see a white male redneck from the South ("goober" is your giveaway) who is anti-female and anti-diversity. You must be the secret "Moy hater" who comes in here and posts rude comments about him.... LOL!

Dear Bubble Pop Fly from the left coast with preconceived notions based on stereotypes:
Sha zam, gooberment and goobermint is jist cymbolism reflectin' the way thangs is a bein' run. Ain't necessarily a reflection on Jimmy "the Goober" Carter who ARE from the South.
