2009 Zachary Taylor Presidential $1 Coin
The last coin to be issued for the year as part of the Presidential series is the 2009 Zachary Taylor Presidential $1 Coin. The golden hued coin also marks the twelfth for the series as a whole.
Zachary Taylor is probably better remembered for his years as a soldier and strategist, than for his Presidency. His leadership on the battlefield during the Mexican-American War was instrumental in the acquisition of 525,000 square miles of land through the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
Taylor's administration would be a short one, however, as he passed away only 16 months into his term.
The Taylor Presidential $1 coins can be found in circulated, uncirculated and proof conditions.
