  • The latest effort from the government to push one dollar coin to public was releasing the presidential dollar coin in 2007. The coin portrays each U.S. president who has served in order. The first series in 2007 included four presidents: Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison. Every year the government will release four types of presidential coins until all U.S. presidents have been depicted.
