This 2013 William Howard Taft Presidential $1 Coin 500-Coin Box is comprised of 500 coins – 20 rolls of 25 circulating quality coins minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia that have never been placed into circulation.

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 side) of the 2013 William Howard Taft Presidential $1 Coin are:

  • WILLIAM HOWARD TAFT
  • IN GOD WE TRUST
  • 27th PRESIDENT
  • 1909-1913

William Howard Taft was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1857. He was appointed as a federal circuit judge at the age of 34, served as civil administrator in the Philippines under President McKinley, and later as President Roosevelt’s Secretary of War. He won the Presidency in 1908, serving one term from 1909 to 1913. Taft’s post-presidency years consisted of serving as a professor of law at Yale University and as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, a position he held until 1930, just prior to his death.

Please Note: United States Mint coins are rolled by an automated machine process and not by hand; thus, we cannot guarantee that the obverse (heads side) or reverse (tails) of a coin will be at either end of a coin roll.

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.
