The downtrend in the mintages of Presidential dollars continues with the release of the totals for the 10th coin in the series, the John Tyler dollar.
Interestingly, the mintages for both Denver and Philadelphia matched at 43,540,000, an event that rarely happens, though the Mint tries to evenly divide production work over time.
This is the second Presidential dollar issue with a combined mintage of under 100 million. While the William Henry Harrison dollar combined total was 98,420,000, for the Tyler dollar the total is 87,080,000 between the two mints. This total is just barely more than one-quarter of the total of the George Washington issue, the first coin in the series.
Other than a slight uptick for the Andrew Jackson coins, the production of Presidential dollars has been in steady decline.
