The United States Mint has started accepting orders for circulating quality examples of the 32nd release of the Presidential $1 Coin Program featuring Franklin D. Roosevelt. He was elected an unprecedented four times and served from March 1933 until his death in April 1945.
The obverse design of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Dollar features a portrait of the President designed and engraved by Joseph Menna. The surrounding inscriptions read “Franklin D. Roosevelt”, “In God We Trust”, “32nd President”, and the dates served “1933-1945”. The reverse of the coin features a rendition of the Statue of Liberty designed by Don Everhart which is intended to symbolize the concept of Liberty. Inscriptions include “United States of America” and “$1”. On the edge of the coin are incused inscriptions of the date of issue, mint mark, and motto “E Pluribus Unum”.
Since 2012, the United States Mint has not released new issues of the Presidential $1 Coin Program for general circulation following a decision made by the Treasury Department. The new releases of the series have only been made available within various numismatic products including annual sets and other special Presidential $1 Coin Sets. Rolls, bags, and boxes of circulating quality coins have also been offered, which yield the lowest premium per coin above the face value.
Products available from the United States Mint starting today include 25-coin rolls priced at $32.95, 100-coin bags priced at $111.95 each, and 250-coin boxes priced at $275.95 each. Each option is available containing circulating quality coins from either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint. The wrappers for the rolls or tags affixed to the bags indicate the President’s name, the mint mark of the coins, and the face value of the contents.
The Mint has not established any maximum mintages or household ordering limits for the rolls, bags, and boxes. It has been indicated that the products will remain available for one year from the initial on-sale date or until inventory is depleted at any earlier date.
