The United States Mint has started accepting orders for circulating quality 2013 Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Dollars in bags, rolls, and boxes. This represents the second release of the year for the Presidential $1 Coin Program and the twenty-sixth release for the program overall.
The obverse of the coin contains a portrait of President Teddy Roosevelt designed and sculpted by Joseph Menna. The inscriptions include “Theodore Roosevelt”, “In God We Trust”, “26th President” and “1901-1909”. The reverse features a rendition of the Statue of Liberty designed by Don Everhart which has been used for all issues of the series. The reverse inscriptions include “United States of America” and “$1”. The date, mint mark, and “E Pluribus Unum” are placed on the edge of the coins.
Following a decision made by the Treasury Department in December 2011, newly released Presidential Dollars are no longer released for general circulation. Rather the coins are produced only in the limited quantities necessary to fulfill demand from collectors and sold exclusively within numismatic products priced at a premium to face value.
Circulating quality 2013 Theodore Roosevelt Dollars are available from the United States Mint in a variety of different packaging options. Products include include 25-coin rolls priced at $32.95, 100-coin bags priced at $111.95, 250-coin boxes priced at $275.95, and 500-coin boxes priced at $550.95. All are available containing coins with either the “P” or “D” mint mark. Each product incorporates an indication of the President, mint mark, and face value of the contents.
Orders for these new products may be placed online at http://www.usmint.gov/catalog.
The next release within the program will feature William Howard Taft and is scheduled for release on July 13, 2013.
