Obama Promise of Change Collection

This historic commemorative tribute includes the following:

 

The First Presidential Dollar bearing the likeness of the "First African American President". In 2007 the United States Mint introduced the new Presidential Dollars series a collection celebrating each non-living U.S. President on a golden Dollar coin.  Four coins are issued each year so the minting schedule for each coin is limited to only about three months – this First 2007 Presidential Washington Dollar is no longer being struck by the United States Mint, making it a appropriate keepsake for another historic moment in Presidential history.

 

Symbolism abounds on the JFK Half Dollar – Kennedy’s own daughter and his brother Senator Ted Kennedy endorsed Obama calling him the candidate who embodies the kind of change JFK represented.  Obama is the first person since Kennedy to go straight from the Senate to the Oval Office. Time and again, Obama invokes JFK's mantra of "The Promise of Change."

 

The Illinois State Quarter features Abraham Lincoln on the reverse.  On Feb. 10, 2007, Barack Obama announced his candidacy with the following speech: "It was here, in Springfield, where North, South, East and West come together that I was reminded of the essential decency of the American people - where I came to believe that through this decency, we can build a more hopeful America.  And that is why, in the shadow of the Old State Capitol, where

 

Lincoln once called on a divided house to stand together, where common hopes and common dreams still live, I stand before you today to announce my candidacy for President of the United States of America."

 

Released on Nov. 3, 2008 the day before Election Day, the Hawaii State Quarter is the last quarter in the 50 State Quarter series.  Hawaii is the birthplace of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America.  Barack Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4th, 1961.

  

All coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and enhanced with a patented technology.
