Ronald Reagan Ready for His Close-up — On $1 Coin

By    |   Friday, 06 Mar 2015 02:41 PM

Does Ronald Reagan look better from his right side or his left side, and should he be smiling or serious — and what does it really matter?

A great deal, actually, because all of these poses are being considered for the upcoming $1 coin the nation's 40th president will adorn.

CoinNews.net, which reports on the production and collecting of coins, says designs for the 2016 Reagan Presidential $1 Coin were reviewed this week by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC).
 
The CCAC — established in 2003 by Congress to advise the Treasury secretary on "the themes and designs of all US coins and medals" — weighed eight different designs of the Gipper.

Five of the drawings show Reagan in full face. In four, he has a broad smile with his teeth showing. In the fifth, Reagan has a serious look, almost a grimace, and his mouth is closed.

Then there's a right-side pose in which he's smiling but close-mouthed, and a left side pose showing a broad smile. In the final depiction, Reagan is halfway pivoted to his right, smiling but close-mouthed.

Not surprisingly, the advisory committee selected the first drawing of the eight — one in which Reagan is smiling and showing off his pearly whites. Drawing No. 3 was also popular.

"Number 1 is obviously the choice because it's the presidential-looking one," committee member Tom Uram told CoinNews.net.

"Number 1 for me… when somebody says Reagan, that's the image that brings to my mind," added Jeanne Stevens-Sollman, telling the site No.3 "seems like 90% Reagan and 10% imagination where number 1 is to me 100% Ronald Reagan."

A president must be deceased before he can be considered for a $1 coin.
