We will continue showing a series called "Presidential Dollars".
The Presidential $1 Coin Program honors the former Presidents of the United States of America on a series of golden colored dollar coins.
From 2007 to 2011, the coins were struck and released for general circulation. From 2012 onwards, the Presidential Dollars have been struck only in the numbers necessary to meet demand from collectors.
The Presidential Dollars were issued at a rate of four different designs per year with three coins released in the final year. The order of issuance followed the order of the Presidencies. The coins were only issued for Presidents who had been deceased for at least two years.
Proof coins were also minted and this is the scope of this series. All are PF-70 UC graded by NGC.
The eight President was Martin Van Buren.
NGC graded 24,220 2008 Andrew Jackson Proofs, with 7,501 as PF-70 UC.
I bought this coin in 2013 for $23.00 and today's price is around $35.00.
Martin Van Buren was a President of two important firsts. He was the first president from New York, and the first president born as an American Citizen. Before being elected President, he served as Governor of New York, Senator, Secretary of State, and Vice President. Van Buren served as the 8th President of the United States for one term from 1837 to 1841.
The obverse of the coin features a portrait of the President.
The reverse features a rendition of the Statue of Liberty that will be used for all Presidential Dollars.
