2007 24k GP Washington Dollar & Stamp Collection
In 2007, the U.S. Mint will introduce the new Presidential Dollars series. The coins celebrate each non-living U.S. President on a unique golden Dollar coin. The Presidential Dollars will be 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 first Presidential Dollar, issued in 2007 for George Washington, the first President. 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. The coin is a limited edition that restricted to about three months of minting. In addition to the coin, the set includes a historic U.S. stamp featuring George Washington. The half-cent stamp was issued on January 1, 1932, to honor the 200th anniversary of George Washington’s birth. The stamp features a 1777 portrait of George Washington by Charles Willson Peale. Similar 24K gold plated coin and stamp sets will be created for each Presidential Dollar in the future. The set comes in a custom display with details of Washington’s life, as well as a Certificate of Authenticity.
