2007 24k GP Jefferson Dollar & Stamp Collection
In 2007, the U.S. Mint introduced the Presidential Dollars series. The coins celebrate each non-living U.S. President on a unique golden Dollar coin. The Presidential Dollars are issued in the order in which the Presidents served. Each coin is a legal tender Dollar coin struck at the U.S. Mint. Each coin will be issued one-at-a-time, so the minting schedule for each coin is limited to only about three months before production starts on the next coin. This set features the third Presidential Dollar, issued in 2007 for Thomas Jefferson, the third President. Before becoming President, Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and was John Adams’ VP. As President, he secured the Louisiana Purchase and commissioned the Lewis and Clark Expedition to explore the West. The coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and is richly layered in pure 24 karat gold. The gold layering is done privately, as the U.S. Mint does not have the capacity to layer coins. Just a tiny fraction of all Presidential Dollars will be layered in gold for this collection. In addition to the coin, the set includes a historic U.S. stamp featuring Thomas Jefferson. The stamp was issued on January 12, 1968, and is in original Mint condition. Similar 24K gold plated coin and stamp sets will be created for each Presidential Dollar in the series. The set comes in a custom display wallet with details of Jefferson’s life, as well as a Certificate of Authenticity.
