(Institutions need to have an account with the Federal Reserve to order from the Fed. If you do not have a direct account with the Fed, please use your normal channels for ordering $1 coins.) You should also encourage your local retailers to place their orders early.


Orders for wrapped rolls of John Adams $1 Coins can be made by depository institutions using FedLine Web® or FedPhone®. The minimum order is $1,000. Financial institutions that use FedLine Web® and that wish to place the minimum order for a $1,000 box of wrapped coins, or institutions that want mixed or unmixed coins in $2,000 bags, should contact their local Federal Reserve Office to place a special order.



The John Adams $1 Coins are legal tender and can be used for commerce and collecting. All Presidential $1 Coins are designed to work in coin-operated machines that accept dollar coins, including parking meters and vending machines. Modeled after the United States Mint's successful 50 State Quarters® Program, the Presidential $1 Coin Program will feature systematically rotating designs of former United States Presidents.

"To help spread the word about the exciting Presidential $1 Coin Program, the United States Mint has been offering a variety of great informational promotional items..."


As well as the totally unplanned sprinkling of a few "unintentional errors" like coins with blank edge lettering - totaly unintentional we swear...

Which banks do you guys usually go for getting the (mixed/unmixed) rolls? For example, do banks like WAMU have them?


Also, do you need to have an account in the bank (i.e if I just walked up the bank with a check of $1000 and try to get 25 rolls, would they give me?)

Hi, keeron


As each presidential dollar coin is minted by the US Mint it will issue them first as unmixed rolls. Later they will offered as mixed rolls. I would suggest you go into your local bank branch and speak to the person that orders these items I'm sure they can help you.


By the way I think you meant 40 rolls for $1000.00, right? blush.gif
