Presidents on Coins
  • Cent/Penny -- Abraham Lincoln- the first to be on a coin, starting in 1909 his centennial year.
  • Nickel -- Thomas Jefferson
  • Quarter -- George Washington
  • Half-Dollar -- John F. Kennedy

Note that, starting in 2007, all deceased Presidents will be honored with a circulating Golden Dollar (which, contrary to the belief of some, is not gold at all, though it has a golden color). The coins will be released 4 per year, and will cover every president from George Washington to Gerald Ford, at least as of March, 2007. By law, no living President's image can appear on a coin.
Cent: Abraham Lincoln

Nickel: Thomas Jefferson

Dime: Franklin Roosevelt

Quarter: George Washington

Half-dollar: John F. Kennedy

Large dollar: Dwight D. Eisenhower

Small dollar: all non-living former presidents
