1 $ "Presidential Coin Program" 2009

Beitrag von dbl » 21. November 2008 19:03

:hi:
The coins honor former Presidents William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James K. Polk and Zachary Taylor.

Beginning with the William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coin next year, “In God We Trust” will appear on the obverse of all Presidential $1 Coins. As a result, the edge lettering of the 2009 Presidential $1 Coins will be slightly different from that of 2007 and 2008. Where currently there are single dots (delimiters) between the inscriptions, in 2009 there will be three stars between “E Pluribus Unum” and the mint mark and 10 stars between the year of minting and “E Pluribus Unum.”

The Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 directed the United States Mint to inscribe the year of minting or issuance, and the national mottos “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God We Trust” on the edge of the Presidential $1 Coin. In 2008, Congress passed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, which included a provision directing the Secretary of the Treasury to move the inscription “In God We Trust” from the edge of the Presidential $1 Coin to the obverse (heads side) or reverse (tails side) of the coin.

Designs for the 2009 Presidential $1 Coins are based on official White House portraits, intaglio prints and medal designs. The first Presidential $1 Coin of 2009, struck in honor of our ninth President, William Henry Harrison, bears an image sculpted and designed by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna. The second Presidential $1 Coin of 2009, honoring John Tyler, our Nation’s 10th President, bears an image designed and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill. The third coin, honoring the 11th President, James K. Polk, features an obverse portrait designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Susan Gamble and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Charles Vickers. The fourth coin, honoring Zachary Taylor, our 12th President, features an obverse portrait by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart. The reverse design on all Presidential $1 Coins features a rendition of the Statue of Liberty, designed and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart.

Launched in 2007, the Presidential $1 Coin Program features a series of designs honoring four Presidents annually, with a new coin issued approximately every three months. Since the inception of the multi-year program, the United States Mint has minted more than 1.4 billion new $1 coins.

Hallo, möchte noch etwas zum Ablauf / zur Bestellung der Coins beitragen: Ich hatte am 17.02. den "2009 Pres. $1 Coin Proof Set 4 Cn" bei der United States Mint geordert. Bereits am 26.02. traf die Sendung wohlbehalten ein. An Kosten fielen an: 14,95 $ (11,70 €) für die Coins und Porto (shipping and handling) in Höhe von 17,90 $ (13,10 €). Für die mitbestellte Collectors -BOX zahlte ich 15, 90 $ (12,95 + 2,95 $). Auch in den beiden vorhergehenden Jahren (Beginn de Serie in 2007) lief alles "ohne Probleme".

@ursus,
eine Frage habe ich bitte: Mußtest Du keine Zollgebühren entrichten? B.z.w. wie bist Du um die Zollgebühren herumgekommen?

Zollgebühren fallen bei Münzen generell nicht an, sondern höchstens Einfuhrumsatzsteuer.

Meine Erfahrung ist, daß der Zoll nur ab und zu mal Sendungen an Privatpersonen überprüft (ich hatte schon häufig welche wo ich eigentlich was bezahlen hätte müßte aber ... ). Aber ich bin auch schon zum Zollamt zitiert worden.

Ansonsten gibt es immer noch Freigrenzen: bis €22 Warenwert werden generell keine Gebühren erhoben. Und dann werden Gebühren erst erhoben wenn sie mindestens €5,00 betragen. Das gibt bei 7% EUSt immerhin eine Freugrenze von ca. €71 und bei 19% EUSt sind es dann ca. €26.

Hallo, bingo, das ist die perfekte Antwort, der ich nichts mehr - für Michael - hinzufügen kann. Nur soviel aus meiner Erfahrung: Ich habe noch nie Zollgebühren bezahlt, obwohl ich nicht wenige Münzen im Ausland, z:B. Kanada, USA, Neuseeland, Australien, Schweden, gesamte EG Länder, ordere.

U.S. Mint hat geschrieben:William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coin Goes Into Circulation February 19

WASHINGTON - The United States Mint will release its ninth Presidential $1 Coin into circulation on February 19, in honor of President William Henry Harrison. Collectors can begin ordering 25-coin rolls of William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coins on the same day, February 19, at noon Eastern Time. The rolls are priced at $35.95.

The rolls contain circulating William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coins, struck on the main production floors of the United States Mint facilities at Philadelphia and Denver. President Harrison's portrait graces the obverse (heads side), along with the inscriptions WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON, IN GOD WE TRUST, 9TH PRESIDENT and 1841. A striking image of the Statue of Liberty is on the reverse (tails side). Incused on the coin's edge are the inscriptions 2009, E PLURIBUS UNUM and the mint of origin (P or D). Packaging for the rolls displays the mint of origin, the face value of the contents ($25) and the United States Mint logo.

President Harrison was born in 1773. During a distinguished Army career, he gained national fame and the nickname "Old Tippecanoe." In 1840, the Whig Party tapped Harrison to run for President. John Tyler was the vice presidential candidate that year. "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too" became the first, and still one of the most memorable, presidential campaign slogans. At age 68, Harrison became the oldest person to serve in the office until the 20th century. He died from pneumonia just one month after his inauguration, the first president to die while in office.

Orders for the rolls of William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coins will be accepted at the United States Mint's secure Web site, http://www.usmint.gov. Telephone orders will be accepted at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing- and speech-impaired customers may order by calling 1-888-321-MINT (6468).

Priced at $35.95, the specially-wrapped rolls contain 25 newly-minted James K. Polk Presidential $1 Coins. The coins were struck on the main production floors of the United States Mint facilities at Philadelphia and Denver. The obverse (heads side) design features a dramatic portrait of the former President and the inscriptions JAMES K. POLK, IN GOD WE TRUST, 11TH PRESIDENT and 1845-1849. A striking image of the iconic Statue of Liberty is on the reverse (tails). Incused on the coin's edge are the inscriptions 2009, E PLURIBUS UNUM and the mint of origin (P or D).

Customers may enroll in the program to receive future rolls of Presidential $1 Coins, and other select products, automatically as they are released. For more information about this convenient ordering method, please visit http://www.usmint.gov.

The Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 honors former Presidents in the order in which they served in our Nation's highest office. Each year, the United States Mint will issue four Presidential $1 Coins bearing portraits of the former Presidents on the obverse and the image of the Statue of Liberty on the reverse. The Presidential $1 Coin honoring Zachary Taylor will be available later this year.

Born in 1795 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, James K. Polk was the eleventh President of the United States (1845 - 1849).

In 1806, the Polk family moved from North Carolina to the Duck River area (now Maury County) in middle Tennessee. Polk, regarded as a promising student, was admitted into the University of North Carolina in 1816 as a second-semester sophomore, and graduated with honors in 1818. At age 27, Polk won a seat in the Tennessee Legislature, and at age 29 he was elected to the U.S. Congress. His Congressional career lasted fourteen years and included two terms as Speaker of the House. Challenging Henry Clay in the 1844 Presidential election, Polk promised to actively encourage America's westward expansion (Manifest Destiny)he favored Texas statehood and the acquisition of the Oregon Territory. Tense negotiations with Great Britain concluded with American annexation of the Oregon Territory south of the 49th Parallel. Following a controversial two-year war, Mexico ceded New Mexico and California to the United States. During Polk's term of office, the United States acquired over 800,000 square miles of western territory and extended its boundary to the Pacific Ocean.

Interestingly:

- Polk is the only Speaker of the House of Representatives to become President of the United States

- Up to that time, Polk was the youngest President

- Polk oversaw the opening of the U.S. Naval Academy and the Smithsonian, the groundbreaking for the Washington Monument, and the issuance of the first postage stamps in the United States

- Polk was the first President of the United States to be photographed frequently while in office

- True to his campaign promise, Polk was the first President to retire after one term without seeking re-election

- Three months after leaving office, Polk died of cholera
