Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States. Therefore, the Thomas Jefferson Dollar was also the third design issued in the Presidential Dollar Coin Program.
Obverse: A portrait of Thomas Jefferson is featured on the coin along with the inscriptions, Thomas Jefferson, which are located right above his own portrait. Arched below Jefferson, are the inscriptions, 3rd President 1801-1809, or the years in which he served as President of the United States.
Reverse: The reverse of the coin features the Statue of Liberty along with a $1 symbol under Liberty’s right arm, with the $1 symbol, indicating the legal tender value of the coin. The words, United States of America, are also encircled around the coin.
Edge: The edge inscriptions will read 2007-P which refer to the date in which the coins were officially released into circulation, along with the P mint mark, representing the Mint in which the coins were produced. Circulation strike coins go through a Schuler edge lettering machine, which then applies the edge lettering on the coins edge.
Position B: The coin's edge lettering reads normally when the President's portrait faces up.
Release Date: Thomas Jefferson circulation strike dollars were officially released on August 16, 2007.
Public Law: The Thomas Jefferson Dollars were struck under the Presidential Dollar Coin Program Act, which was authorized under Public Law 109-145.
