Designs of the 2008 Presidential dollars will be the last to place ?In God We Trust? on the edge. These finished images were released Dec. 27.

The national motto will move to the obverse in 2009 in keeping with legislation just signed into law, which required it to be done as soon as practicable, according to the Mint.

The James Monroe coin will be the first one released on Feb. 14. It will be followed by John Quincy Adams May 15, Andrew Jackson Aug. 14 and Martin Van Buren Nov. 13.
