Description & Analysis

George Washington was the first coin of the golden dollar series honoring Presidents of the United States. While the initial fervor of the new series pushed up mintages, the coins didn't circulate and most are still in storage at banks around the country.

The Presidential dollar coin series was the first series the U.S. Mint had produced in decades with edge lettering. The date, mint mark, IN GOD WE TRUST and E PLURIBUS UNUM were all struck into the edge. On the MS coins, this was done as a separate process after the coins were struck.

Apparently, an entire bin of perhaps 250,000 coins was mistakenly released without going through this process, leading to a rush on banks with eager collectors hoping to find valuable errors. Most of them seemed to be concentrated around the area of the Federal Reserve bank branch in Jacksonville, FL.
