Abraham Lincoln Presidential Dollar Mintage

The US Mint has provided the final production figures for the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Dollar. This is the fourth and final release of the year, as well as the 16th release of the series.

The general trend for the Presidential Dollars series has been for declining mintages. However, with the Lincoln Dollar, the trend is broken or at least interrupted. Across both mint facilities, there were 97,020,000 produced. This is up from 73,360,000 for the prior issue featuring James Buchanan.

The Philadelphia Mint struck 49 million Abraham Lincoln Dollars and the Denver Mint struck 48.02 million. These are the highest totals since early in 2009.

For the entire series, there have now been more than 2 billion Presidential Dollars produced. That’s a lot for a coin that doesn’t seem to circulate.
