It looks like President George H. W. Bush, who passed away in 2018, will be getting a dollar coin. The bill to mint the coin has passed the House and Senate and awaits the President's signature.

What interests me is that the Bush coin has been selected to be CIRCULATED. It's been years since any of the Presidential dollars were circulated.
I do hope that it would follow the design of the previous 'prez' dollars, and not minted in a totally different pattern(s). I already have a spot in my folder for GHW right after Ronald Reagan's.

From the link above


This bill requires the issuance of

$1 coins bearing the image of President George H.W. Bush for a one-year period beginning on January 1, 2019, and
bullion coins bearing the image of Barbara Bush during that same period.


Beginning January 1, 2019?

The bill was actually introduced in early 2019 but no action was taken on it until just the last few weeks.

Assuming it gets signed, I suppose they can begin as soon as possible.

Carter's is going to be an OCD nightmare. Does it go before Reagan, based on term, or after Bush, based in issue?

It goes in the hole that is already in the album.

You cannot see the edge dates anyway.

The President signed this bill yesterday (Jan. 27) so it has now officially become law. So now I guess we wait for the official design and the release date.

The link takes you to the summary of the bill, which was written in 2019. If you read the actual text of the bill it says

(2) an inscription of the year "2020".

As much as I am NOT a fan of the Presidential series, I am actually looking forward to this one.
