• The U.S. Mint’s Presidential Dollars series reached its second year in 2008.

• Presidential Dollars are issued in the order in which the Presidents served, and at the rate of four per year.

• This set features the fifth Presidential Dollar overall – and the first of 2008.

• It features James Monroe, the fifth President.

• The coins celebrate each non-living U.S. President on a unique golden Dollar coin.

• Each coin is a legal tender Dollar coin struck at the U.S. Mint.

• Each coin is issued in a limited edition of only about three months before production starts on the next coin.

Monroe fought in the American Revolution, was Governor of Virginia, and served as minister to France and Britain for Presidents Washington and Jefferson.

• In 1816, Monroe was elected President.  He was reelected in 1820.

• As President he created the Monroe Doctrine which opposed European interference in the New World.

• The coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and is richly layered in pure 24 karat gold.

• The gold layering is done privately, as the U.S. Mint does not have the capacity to layer coins.

• Just a tiny fraction of all Presidential Dollars will be layered in gold for this collection.

• In addition to the coin, the set includes a historic U.S. stamp.

• The stamp was issued December 5, 1947, to honor the dedication of Everglades National Park in Florida.

Monroe obtained Florida from Spain in 1819.

• The set comes in a custom display wallet with details of Monroe’s life, as well as a Certificate of Authenticity.

• There is one coin and one stamp in the collection.  The coin is composed of .770 copper, .070 manganese, and .040 nickel, then layered in pure 24 karat gold.
