Presidential Coin Production Cut in U.S. Cost-Saving Move

The U.S. Mint, in a money-saving move, will stop making presidential $1 coins for general use and will produce only enough to meet demand from collectors.

That’s bad news for fans of Chester Alan Arthur, Grover Cleveland and Benjamin Harrison, who are to be featured on the coins made in 2012. Since 2007, the mint has worked its way from George Washington to James Garfield in a set of coins honoring U.S. presidents.
