U.S. Presidential Dollars (2007-2016) are golden in color but are not made of gold, they’re actually 85.5% copper plus a small percentage of zinc, maganese and nickel. Values listed in this guide are but an average of what the coin might sell for raw, but will realize a higher premium if graded higher than MS65.
The only coin grading services CoinHELP! recognizes is PCGS, NGC, ANACS and ICG. So high grade values of Presidential Dollars is based on what they might sell for when certified and graded by these four grading services.
The optimum certified grade that Presidential Dollars start gaining a premium is MS67 with very few ever attaining the MS68 grade, so Presidential Dollars values for MS67 and up are steady, but most will be worth around a $1 to $2 if they’re not heavily marked up or worn from circulation.
Furthermore the real premium values is in the varieties, for instance, missing edge lettering, doubled edge lettering and mint errors respectively. Collectors have a huge number of coins to choose from and most have never been circulated or are housed in a vault at the mint, so the future potential for errors, varieties and high grade discovery coins is large.
