Honoring the first President of the United States to assume the office via succession, the US Mint has issued the 2009 John Tyler Presidential $1 Coin. These coins are mainly struck for circulation, but can also be found in uncirculated and proof condition.

The launch ceremony for the Tyler coins took place at his former home, known as Sherwood Forest Plantation. As with previous ceremonies, children in attendance were able to get a free new strike as a souvenir.

Tyler was called "His Accidency" by opponents since he was not elected as President, but he served the office to the best of his ability. When Tyler died years later during the Civil War, he was a member of the Confederate Congress. As such, he is the only President to not officially be mourned in D.C. after their death.
