US Mint - The United States Mint (Mint) today officially announced the designs for the George H.W. Bush Presidential $1 Coin and the Barbara Bush First Spouse Gold Coin. Public Law 116-112 authorizes the Mint to strike and issue these coins.

The obverse (heads) design of the Presidential $1 Coin honoring George H.W. Bush features his portrait with the inscriptions "GEORGE H.W. BUSH," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "41st PRESIDENT," and "1989-1993." Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) artist Elana Hagler created the design, which Mint Chief Engraver Joseph Menna sculpted.



As with the earlier Presidential $1 Coins, this coin bears the common reverse (tails) design featuring a striking rendition of the Statue of Liberty, designed and sculpted by former Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart.

The inscriptions "2020," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and the mint mark are incused on the coin's edge.

The obverse design of the First Spouse Gold Coin honoring Barbara Bush features her portrait with the inscriptions "BARBARA BUSH," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY," "2020," "41st," and "1989-1993." The design was created by AIP artist Benjamin Sowards and sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill.



The reverse design pays homage to Mrs. Bush's passionate advocacy for family literacy. The design depicts a person reading, with an open road before them. The open book symbolizes literacy, education, and knowledge. The road symbolizes the future and the journey of life, and the sun in the distance is the promise of a brighter future. Inscriptions are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "$10" "1/2 oz.," and ".9999 FINE GOLD." The design was created by AIP artist Barbara Fox and sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist John P. McGraw.

Images of the George H.W. Bush Presidential $1 Coin are available at http://www.usmint.gov/news/image-li...ial-dollar/, while images of the Barbara Bush First Spouse Gold Coin are available at http://www.usmint.gov/news/image-li...oin-program.

The Barbara Bush First Spouse Gold Coin will be available for purchase beginning on August 20 at noon EDT. The Barbara Bush First Spouse bronze medal will be included in the George H.W. Bush Presidential $1 Coin and First Spouse Medal Set and the George H.W. Bush Coin and Chronicles Set. Additional details will be announced prior to the release date. The Mint will announce the on-sale date for the George H.W. Bush Presidential $1 Coin later in the year.

I wish they would have released a dollar rendering more like the medal. As usual, I will reserve judgement until I see a more realistic portrayal.

It will be interesting to see how the dollar will be packaged and sold. I say, it would have been nice if it could have been included in the annual proof and mint sets.
