The Presidential $1 Coin Program honors the former Presidents of the United States of America on a series of golden colored dollar coins.
From 2007 to 2011, the coins were struck and released for general circulation. From 2012 onward, the Presidential Dollars have been struck only in the numbers necessary to meet demand from collectors.
The Presidential Dollars were issued at a rate of four different designs per year with three coins released in the final year. The order of issuance followed the order of the Presidencies. The coins were only issued for Presidents who had been deceased for at least two years.
Proof coins were also minted and this is the scope of this series. All are PF-70 UC graded by NGC.
The thirty-eighth President was Gerald R. Ford.
NGC graded 5,087 2016 Gerald R. Ford Proofs, with 2,661 as PF-70 UC. 1,196,592 coins were minted in San Francisco.
I bought this coin in 2016 for $22.52 and today's price is around $35.00.
The info below comes from https://presidentialdollarguide.com/gerald-r-ford-presidential-dollar/
"Gerald R. Ford grew up in Nebraska before attending the University of Michigan and Yale University, where he would earn a law degree and also coach the football team. After serving in the U.S. Navy in World War II, Ford served in the United States House of Representatives from 1949 to 1973. He was then appointed Vice President and assumed the Presidency following Richard Nixon’s resignation."
The obverse of the coin features a portrait of the President.
The reverse features a rendition of the Statue of Liberty that will be used for all Presidential Dollars.
