Background 

The Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 required the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue $1 coins honoring each of the Presidents of the United States. The series was limited to Presidents who had been deceased for at least two years prior to the issuance of the coin, and the program ended when each eligible former president had been so honored. The Act also created the First Spouse Gold Coin and Bronze Medal series, which authorized a half ounce gold bullion coin and bronze medal of the same design honoring a President’s Spouse during the President’s term of service.

The President George H.W. Bush and First Spouse Barbara Bush Coin Act continues this series.The Mint worked closely with its liaison to the Bush family in developing these designs.
