What moved presidential inauguration day from March 4th to January 20th?

The inauguration for the first U.S. president, George Washington, was held on April 30, 1789 in New York City. Inauguration Day was originally set for March 15, giving electors from each state nearly four months after Election Day to cast their ballots for president. In 1937, the day of inauguration was changed by the Twentieth Amendment from March 4 to noon on January 20, beginning with Franklin Roosevelt's second term in 1937. In 1801, Thomas Jefferson became the first to be sworn in as president in Washington, D.C., which did not officially become the U.S. capital until that year.

1994 inauguration R5 coin what is it worth?

Ungraded, the first day cover with the proof coin is selling for round about R1600 - R1800 per coin.

You can pick up a graded proof coin for R1000 and upwards, depending on the grade. The proof 68 is selling for about R1500 and the proof 69 for about R1800 - R2500.

In my opinion you should buy as many of the first day covers as you can, get them graded and hold on to them for at least 5 to 10 years. I'm not able to tell you what they will be worth, but I can tell you they will be worth a lot more.

Stay far away from uncirculated and circulated coins. These coins will NEVER be worth more than R5.

What happens if a president is not determined by inauguration day Does a former president get called to serve?

I don't believe there to be any definite law as to what would happen if a president had not been selected before Jan 20th. If the president had not been decided due to a lawsuit about counting vote or the eligibility of voters, the Supreme Court would make a ruling saying who wins. I'd go out on a limb and say that no matter what, the Supreme Court would make some kind of ruling before January (if the election is held up in a lawsuit)
