U.S. Mint Unveils New Set of Dollar Coins

The U.S. Mint is unveiling a new set of dollar coins featuring the likenesses of four presidents.

The gold-colored coin series started last February with George Washington.

The next to follow will be James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren.

The mint hopes the presidential series will "breathe new life" in dollar coins, after the Susan B. Anthony and Scagawea dollar coins were considered unsuccessful.

There is no word yet on when the rest of the coins will be available to the public.
