The 2011 Ulysses S. Grant Presidential $1 Coin will be the eighteenth coin released by the US Mint in a series dedicated to honoring the former Presidents of the United States of America. The coin shows a release date of May 19, 2011 from the US Mint.

Aside from being the eighteenth coin issued in the series, it also has the distinction of honoring the eighteenth President of the United States. That is because coins in the series are released at a rate of four per year honoring the individuals in the order in which they served in office. One strike will precede this on in 2011, the Andrew Johnson Presidential $1 Coin. The two strikes scheduled to appear after the Johnson coin include the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential $1 Coin and the James Garfield Presidential $1 Coin.

Ulysses S. Grant rose to prominence during the American Civil War where his leadership is credited with aiding the Union victories of that conflict. Using that popularity, Grant was elected to the Presidency and served two terms from 1869-1877. Despite several notable accomplishments as President, troubled economic times and scandals tied to his administration saw him leaving office a very unpopular man with the public.
