The American Presidency $1 Coin Cover Series showcases the Presidential $1 Coin. The 2013 William Howard Taft $1 Coin Cover is the 27th issue in the series, which began in 2007. This limited-edition cover – only 20,000 will be produced – features two William Howard Taft $1 Coins from the first day of production at each United States Mint facility – February 11, 2013 (Philadelphia), and February 6, 2013 (Denver). The coins are mounted on a display card inside an envelope with a U.S. Patriotic Star stamp. The cover also features a portrait of President Taft, and the postmark of August 6, 2013, Cincinnati, OH, marks the day the William Howard Taft $1 Coin Cover was issued by the United States Mint.
These coins’ designs display large, dramatic artwork and edge-incused inscriptions of the year, E PLURIBUS UNUM and the mint mark. Each coin features a likeness of Taft and has a common reverse design featuring a striking rendition of the Statue of Liberty.
The design inscriptions on the obverse (heads) of the 2013 William Howard Taft Presidential $1 Coin are:
- WILLIAM HOWARD TAFT
- IN GOD WE TRUST
- 27th PRESIDENT
- 1909 - 1913
In 2005, President Bush signed the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 authorizing the United States Mint to strike $1 coins honoring America’s Presidents in the order in which they served. This coin, the 27th in the Presidential $1 Coin Program, honors President William Howard Taft.
