Annual Report to the Congress on the Presidential $1 Coin Program in July 2007, pursuant to section 104 of the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005

Figure 3. Federal Reserve $1 Coin Activity

This bar chart shows a substantial increase in depository institutions' orders of $1 coins from Reserve Banks during the initial issuance of the Sacagawea $1 coin in 2000 and 2001 (from average monthly payments of $9.3 million in 1999 to $51.6 million in 2000 and $25.0 million in 2001). The table also shows, however, that net payments (gross payments to circulation less gross receipts from circulation) returned to historical levels after the introductory period (from average monthly net payments of $42.8 million in 2000 and $16.1 million in 2001 to $5.7 million in 2003, comparable to the average monthly net payments in 1999 of $6.0 million). The chart shows a similar increase in $1 coin payments in 2007 (first quarter data only) because of the issuance of the George Washington $1 coin.
