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.

Gerald Rudolph Ford was born Leslie Lynch King Jr. on July 14, 1913, in Omaha, Nebraska. Following the separation and eventual divorce of his parents, his mother married Gerald R. Ford, a Grand Rapids paint salesman. His name was legally changed in 1935.

Ford graduated from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor in 1935 and later Yale, where he earned a law degree while coaching the football team.

Following a stint in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Ford campaigned for the U.S. House of Representatives, serving from January 3, 1949 to December 6, 1973. He was appointed vice president in 1973, and almost a year later, he was thrust into the presidency when Richard Nixon resigned.

Highlights of Ford’s administration include:
Initiating a program to grant clemency to Vietnam War-era draft evaders
Launching the Whip Inflation Now (WIN) program, designed to curb inflation
Signing the Federal Elections Campaign Act of 1974, an early attempt at campaign finance reform
Granting Richard Nixon a full pardon, becoming the first sitting president to testify before a congressional committee to explain his action
