Banjamin Harrison Presidential $1 Coin (Obverse)

The 2012 Benjamin Harrison Presidential $1 Coin will be struck by the United States Mint as the third of four 2012-dated releases of the Presidential $1 Coin Program. Shown on the reverse of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential $1 Coin will be a portrait of the twenty-third President of the United States, Benjamin Harrison.

Coins of the Presidential $1 Coin Program started appearing in 2007 with the release of the George Washington Presidential $1 Coin. Since that debut, new coins in the series have been issued at a rate of four per year in the order in which the former Presidents served in office.

Three other strikes will appear in 2012 as part of the series in addition to the Benjamin Harrison Coin. Two will appear before including the Chester A. Arthur Presidential $1 Coin, the Grover Cleveland (First Term) Presidential $1 Coin with one released after - the Grover Cleveland (Second Term) Presidential $1 Coin.

Benjamin Harrison was the grandson of the ninth President of the United States William Henry Harrison. Benjamin became the twenty-third US President on March 4, 1889 after defeating incumbent Grover Cleveland. However, Harrison only served one term in office being defeated four years later by Cleveland who won an unprecedented second non-consecutive term as US President.

The 2012 Presidential $1 Coin Program marks a change to the series as it is the first year the coins will not be struck for circulation. Owing to stockpiles of previous strikes in Federal Reserve vaults, the US Government opted to end the circulating production of the coins leaving them only to be produced by the US Mint for collectors.
