When was the first Presidential Dollar really made?
Now I know that many will say that this is true, but the presidential dollars didn't come out until the year 2007 after in 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Presidential $1.00 Coin Act. Of course you can say that this act was the foundation of this query, but I must disagree. 1971 was the first year a president was put on a dollar coin and that cannot be disputed. If fact the coin is called a "Eisenhower Dollar". What are you going to call the issued presidential dollar that comes out in 2015? Eisenhower Dollar 2?
Bring up the subject with other collectors. Throw it around the coin stores and dealers and see what they say. This could make for a good numismatic subject.
