2013 William McKinley Presidential 1 Coin

General Coin Information

Issued as the first 2013-dated strike of the US Mint's Presidential $1 Program is the 2013 William McKinley Presidential $1 Coin. A portrait of William McKinley, the 25th President of the United States, will grace the obverse of the strike.

Coins of the Presidential series first made their debut in 2007. The program offers four new strikes annually honoring the former Presidents of the United States in the order in which they served.

These coins are struck for circulation and were actually released into circulation for the first several years of their production. However, that policy changed in late 2011 when Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner ordered a halt as part of a broad Campaign to Cut Government Waste initiated by President Barack Obama. Since then, coins of this series are only struck for numismatic purposes.

President McKinley assumed the office of President on March 4, 1897 and served through September 14, 1901. His tenure was cut short after his assassination.

Obverse Design

A portrait of President William McKinley is shown on the obverse of the coin and was designed and executed by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill. It is surrounded by the inscriptions of WILLIAM MCKINLEY, 25TH PRESIDENT, 1897-1901 and IN GOD WE TRUST.

Reverse Design

An image of the Statue of Liberty is featured on the reverse of all Presidential Dollar coins. It was originally designed by Don Everhart. Around the statue the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "$1" are shown.

Edge Inscription

Inscribed on the edge of each coin is "2013," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the mint mark.
