Pres. Buchanan $1 coin released this Thursday

This Thursday, the U.S. Mint is releasing the newest Presidential $1 coin, featuring our 15th president James Buchanan. Buchanan is the third coin released in 2010, with the fourth being Abraham Lincoln in November.

You can view the $1 coin release schedule over at the U.S. Mint.
