Woo Hoo! I got a roll of Reagan Presidential dollars from my credit union recently and it made my day.

I thought the newer Presidential dollars weren't available to the public.

The reverse design is excellent. However it would be better if they ditched $1 and used ONE DOLLAR and made the Statue of Liberty a touch smaller as to not have parts of it so close to the edge.

They are not released to the banks, but people buy rolls from the mint looking for gems and dumping the rest. If the Reagan roll was in the mint wrapper, perhaps the purchaser needed to cash in for an emergency.

Perhaps it was given to someone as a gift, and the recipient did not realize that they were worth more than face value.

They absolutely are available to the public, they just are not intended for circulation. They are sold by the box, bag or roll.

You will pay a premium price for them, for instance a 25-coin roll is $32.95 and you still need to add shipping.

I was unaware of this. Is there a list I can look over for the Presidential dollars that aren't suppose to be in circulation? I actually have a couple Reagan's myself. Not a whole roll but a few. Thanks in advance for the info!

All of the dollar coins dated 2012 and later were not intended for circulation.

They were mostly intended to sit in government vaults and never see the light of day.

Actually these dollars weren't. Silver dollars from the 1930's and before were mostly used as a store of value to back paper money but dollar coins minted since the 1970's were intended as either circulation coinage or collector pieces.

The metal they are minted from these days has too little intrinsic value to be worth storing in vaults as backing for paper money, the ones that are in vaults are only there because there is nothing else to do with them due to low demand. Eliminating the paper dollar would create a demand for them and they would enter circulation and become useful.
