U.S. DOLLARS 2000-2019

The United States Dollar Coin Act of 1997 changed the appearance and composition of the US Dollar into what we know it as today, a copper core with gold colored plating similar in size to the quarter. Since December 2011, these modern US Dollar Coins are no longer released into circulation making them highly collectible. Each design pays homage to a specific part of United States history or development.

The first of the modern dollar coins was the Sacagawea Dollar Coin minted from 2000 2008. The design of this US Dollar was chosen from among 120 designs entered into a national competition. The obverse depicts a young Native American woman, Sacagawea, carrying her infant son Jean Baptiste, while the reverse depicts an image of an eagle just as US Dollars have done since 1794.

The Native American Dollar which began production in 2009 features the same obverse as the Sacagawea Dollar. However, the reverse changes with each year and memorializes Native Americans and their contributions to the development and history of the United States.

In 2007, the United States began honoring former Presidents with the Presidential Dollar Coin series. Each year four different dollar coins are released, but only coins minted prior to 2012 can be found in circulation at this time. The series began with George Washington and continues in sequential order by term served in office. The obverse of each Presidential Dollar bears an image of the President being honored. The reverse features the Statue of Liberty.

Both the Native American Dollar and the Presidential Dollar have inscriptions incused on the rim of the coin. The markings consist of the year, mint mark, some stars, and E PLURIBUS UNUM. Some of the Presidential Dollars also contain IN GOD WE TRUST on the edge lettering, but it was moved to the reverse in 2009. The Sacagawea Dollar does not feature any edge markings and therefore has plain edging. Error coins can be found for both the Native American and Presidential Dollar Coins with either double or missing edge lettering.

We offer a selection of single dollar coins, dollar rolls, complete sets, as well as albums and folders to further or start your US Dollar coin collection.
