Presidential $1 Coin Program

Presidential dollar coins began on January 1, 2007, and like the 50 State quarters program, was not scheduled to end until every eligible subject was honored. The program was to issue coins featuring each of four presidents per year on the obverse, issuing one for three months before moving on to the next president in chronological order by term in office. To be eligible, a President must have been deceased for at least two years prior to the time of minting. The United States Mint called it the Presidential $1 Coin Program.

George Herbert Walker Bush was born in Milton, Massachusetts, on June 12, 1924. In keeping with his family’s tradition of public service, he joined the U.S. Navy during World War II and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, and the U.S. Navy Air Medal with two gold stars. After Mr. Bush left the Navy, he attended Yale University and graduated in 1948 with a degree in economics, then relocated to Texas with his wife Barbara and eldest son George W.

Mr. Bush’s career in politics and public service began in February of 1963, when he was elected chairman of the Harris County Republican Party. He went on to serve two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives (1966-1970); Ambassador to the United Nations (1971-1973); Chairman of the Republican National Committee (1973-1974); Chief of the U.S. Liaison Office in China (1974-1976); and Director of Central Intelligence (1976-1977) before serving as vice president from 1981 to 1989 under Ronald Reagan.

Mr. Bush was sworn in as the 41st President of the United States on January 20, 1989, bringing with him his vision of “a kinder and gentler nation.” Highlights of his administration include passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Clean Air Act – landmark civil rights and environmental legislation. He also successfully advocated for and negotiated the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which was later signed into law. President Bush also launched his “Points of Light” initiative, which promoted volunteerism and community service across America. During his term in office, he named 1,020 Daily Points of Light hailing from all 50 states.

After leaving office, President Bush continued his commitment to service to others. He has helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for charity.

George H. W. Bush died on November 30, 2018, at the age of 94.
