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 onward, 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 twenty-third President was Benjamin Harrison.

NGC graded 5,363 2012 Benjamin Harrison Proofs, with 1,585 as PF-70 UC. 1,438,710 coins were minted in San Francisco.

I bought this coin in 2013 for $26.00 and today's price is around $35.00.

The info below comes from https://presidentialdollarguide.com/benjamin-harrison-presidential-dollar/

"Benjamin Harrison was the grandson of William Henry Harrison, the ninth President of the United States, who famously served for only thirty days. Benjamin spent his professional life as a lawyer prior to serving in the Senate. In the 1888 Presidential election, he lost the popular vote, but won the electoral college, becoming the 23rd President of the United States."

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.
