This price guide provides the value of Presidential Dollars that were minted beginning in 2007 and continues through today.  The table below supplies average coin prices and values based upon the condition of the coin.  If the coin shows evidence of wear on it due to being used in commerce, it is considered "circulated." If it was never used and is still in pristine condition, then it is classified as "uncirculated." Some coins are very valuable even in well worn condition and a coin's value cannot be increased by cleaning it. Cleaned coins are worth substantially less and coin dealers will recognize a cleaned coin immediately.  Please, never clean your coins!

Coin Market Analysis

Presidential Dollars have been minted by the millions. Unfortunately, they have never circulated in day-to-day commerce. Therefore, uncirculated coins are plentiful and widely available for not much more than face value. But don't expect to walk in to a coin shop with a bag or box of Presidential Dollars. If you want the most money for your Presidential Dollar coins, you need to sort them and organize them so the dealer can quickly see what you have.

Key Dates, Rarities and Varieties

The following Presidential Dollar in any condition, are worth considerable more than common Presidential Dollar.  As such, these coins are frequently counterfeit or altered from common Presidential Dollars.  Therefore, before you start celebrating your new found money, have the coin authenticated by a reputable coin dealer or third party grading service.

Presidential Dollars Average Prices and Values

The following table lists the buy price (what you can expect to pay to a dealer to purchase the coin) and sell value (what you can expect a dealer to pay you if you sell the coin). The first column lists the date and mint mark (see the photo above) followed by the buy price and the sell value for an average circulated Presidential Dollar.  The next two columns list the buy price and the sell value for an average uncirculated.
