The 2009 William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coin was struck by the US Mint as the ninth coin in the series, but the first for 2009. Harrison had a long and distinguished career before his election, but only served as President for 32 days before he died in office.

The coins were officially launched on President's Day, February 16, 2009 at Harrison's Virginia home known as Berkeley Plantation. Children who attended the ceremony were given a free dollar coin as a souvenir.

In a change from the 2007 and 2008 Presidential coins, the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" has been moved to the obverse of the coin. On previous issues, it appeared on the edge.

With a majority of these coins struck for circulation, they may also be found in uncirculated and proof conditions.
