Public to receive free Presidential Golden DollarsComplete 2009 and 2010 Presidential Golden Dollar Sets go free to public getting remaining sealed, Vault rolls
The Presidential Golden Dollar presses shut down at all U.S. Mints after only 13 weeks of minting of the Martin Van Buren Golden Dollars. This permanent halt of the Van Buren Dollars was forced by public law amidst numerous debates on Capitol Hill.
Once the presses were shut down, the Presidential Golden Dollar series changed forever. And what caused these extraordinary steps? In addition to Public Law 109-145, rare minting errors surfaced whereby the inscription “In GOD We Trust” was missing from the unique coin edging.
These few rare errors caused much public uproar and numerous accusations that the Federal Government was removing GOD from our coinage. Capitol Hill made immediate changes to the Presidential Golden Dollar program, demanding “In GOD We Trust” appear on the obverse or reverse of the coin where fewer minting errors would take place.
However misguided the accusations were, the U.S. Mint® was compelled to change the entire program going forward, splitting the series in two.
As such, a rush on the Presidential Golden Dollars, changed by the law after two full years into the series, has taken hold of the reserved stockpile in the private United States Commemorative Gallery vaults.
The vault doors have been opened and readers can get complete rolls of the first eight Variety II Presidential Golden Dollars.
