21st American Presidency $1 Coin Cover Featuring President Chester Arthur

The 21st release in the American Presidency $1 Coin Cover Series debuted Monday, April 9, when the 2012 Chester Arthur $1 Coin Cover was launched by the US Mint at a price of $19.95.

Created specifically for collectors, the coin cover includes two Presidential $1's featuring Chester Arthur -- the same dollars released in boxes and rolls on Thursday.

Packaged within a specially designed display card are two Chester Arthur $1 coins from the first day of production. One of the coins comes from the production floor on the Denver Mint and the other originates from the Philadelphia Mint. As the image above shows, an image of Chester Arthur appears in the background of the card.

Also featured on the display card is one of the five U.S. 45-cent Weather Vane postage stamps with a postmark of March 13, 2012, Fairfield, VT. This signifies the day when the Chester Arthur $1 Coin Cover was issued by the United States Mint. Past issues in the American Presidency $1 Coin Cover Series had postmarks representative of when a $1 coin was released into circulation. However, with the Treasury Department suspending $1 coin production for circulation, such a date was impossible.

Prices for the cover are the same as last year's, with all four of those still available. In fact, the US Mint is still offering each of the 2010-dated covers for $15.95 as well as the four 2009-dated covers for $14.95.

Orders may be placed by using the United States Mint website at or by calling the toll free number 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).

Three more $1 coin covers are expected out this year. These will include Presidential $1 coins with portraits of Grover Cleveland representative of his first term (1885-1889), that of Benjamin Harrison and a final one with Grover Cleveland again which is representative of his second term (1893-1897).
