World Mint Coins is pleased to offer a William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coin page, complete with images, specifications and coin information.
Released on February 19, 2009, the William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coin celebrates the shortest presidency in US history. Serving only 32 days before his death, Harrison is remembered more for his achievements before being elected than those completed while in office.
The President's Day release by the US Mint marked the first one of the presidential coins to be released for the year, but the ninth in the series as a whole. It is available in circulated condition and in the following sets:
-2009 United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set™ – William Henry Harrison
-2009 Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set
-2009 William Henry Harrison $1 Coin Cover
-2009 United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set
The unexpected death of "Old Tippecanoe" (as Harrison was known), would bring about the first succession of the powers of president in US history. John Tyler would become the 10th President, and will be featured in the next coin of the series.
