2010-P Franklin Pierce Dollar

Have a Pierce dollar coin and want to know how much it's worth?

Does the fact that the edge lettering can be be normal or upside down bother anyone else? No. I guess it is just me. That means twice as many dollars to collect, although seeing how only twenty presidential dollars were released for circulation that is a slightly smaller collection.


When you look at President Franklin Pierce normally and start to flip the coin you will see the edge is upside down. Again the mint has officially said that this is normal and have it right side up or upside down makes no difference. Still I want to collect them and eventually someone may do a study to see if one position is more rare.

The obverse says Franklin Pierce, In God We Trust, 14th President, and 1853-1857. I honestly know nothing about Pierce. Of course America was going through some big changes back then but how he shaped it was not discussed much during my school years.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Dollar-Franklin Pierce / United States
Year: 2010 P (Edge upside-down)
Mintage: 38,360,000
Metal: 88.5% Copper, 6% Zinc, 3.5% Manganese, and 2% Nickel
Value: $1.00 in F-12

You may have a coin from an Uncirculated Set which had a special Satin Finish if still perfect and untouched it may have extra value, $3.00 or more depending on grade.
