The final of four strikes to be released in 2011 as part of the Presidential $1 Coin series is the 2011 James Garfield Presidential $1 Coin. According to the Mint, the strike has a release date of November 17, 2011.

The three strikes scheduled to be released earlier in the year as part of the series include the Andrew Johnson Presidential $1 Coin, Ulysses S. Grant Presidential $1 Coin and the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential $1 Coin. Together, the four strikes compose the fifth year for the Presidential coin program which debuted in 2007 and honors four former Presidents per year in the order upon which the individuals served in office.

James Garfield has the distinction of being the President with the second shortest time in office. His tenure only lasted 200 days before he passed away from complications linked to being shot by an assassin two months earlier. As such, he was not able to accomplish much as President, but was still regarded well for his service during the American Civil War and several terms in the United States Congress.
