The William Henry Harrison Dollar was officially released on February 19th 2009, and was the ninth release in a series of Presidential Dollars depicting passed heads of state.

The ninth President of the USA , Harrison came to office in 1841 and was the first American President to die while still in the White House. Famously it is perhaps his cause of death, rather than his term in charge that he will be most remembered for.

Delivering his inaugural speech during a rainstorm, he unfortunately developed pneumonia and died 30 days later as a result of an extended exposure to the harsh elements.

The William Henry Harrison dollar was launched on the Berkeley Plantation, Charles City, Virginia. The occasion was presided over by US Mint Deputy Director, Andrew Brunhart, and included a ceremonial coin pour, tours of the plantation's 18th Century manor and a free presidential dollar for all the children who attended the ceremony.

The coin itself features a portrait of Harrison, designed by the sculptor Joseph Menna, it is inscribed with the words William Henry Harrison and 'In God We Trust'.

On the reverse side of the coin is the Statue of Liberty, a design used throughout the series.

To find an up-to-date value for the Harrison dollar, it is recommended that you seek a legitimate dealer, or coin collector. This will give you an accurate valuation and possibly a vendor to sell the coin through.

Alternatively eBay lists a number of auctions selling the coin, with prices ranging from $2 USD - $14 USD.

To those of you here trying to take advantage of people, SHAME ON YOU. You are disgusting. Go get some moral values. (Yes Jesus, especially you for not honoring your namesake.)

The William Henry Harrison coin is worth one dollar. If you look at the EDGE of the coin, you will see it was minted in 2009. The 1841 date you see on the front is when William Henry Harrison served as the President of the United States. He served only 1 month, dying from pneumonia, which developed likely due to his Inaugural Address, in which he delivered a 1-hour, 45-minute speech in the cold and rain without wearing a hat or coat.

The metal composition is brass with a copper core, they contain no gold whatsoever.

The mint is releasing these coins, 4 per year, in the order that each President served.  The first coin of the series, George Washington Dollar, was released in February 2007. 

As for the rarity of this coin, it may surprise you to know the mintages are relatively low as compared to the coins released early in the Presidential Dollar Coin program.  The mint struck over 340 MILLION Washington dollar coins and less than a third of that amount for Harrison, at 98.4 million.

The mintages of these coins are steadily declining as there is no public demand for them.  The US Government would LOVE to replace the paper dollar in order to save production costs.  There is no public desire to give up the George Washington Dollar Bill.

As for the Presidential Dollar Program, it's currently scheduled to go to 2016, with the last coin (as of now*) being Gerald Ford.

*A "coin" is different from a medallion in that it bears a face value, such as "One Dollar" on the coin itself.  It is illegal to strike a US Coin bearing the image or likeness of a living person.  Since this series is released in the order in which each President served, Jimmy Carter will be released after Ford, but must first be laid to rest before they can start his coin.  Ronald Reagan would be the 4th coin of 2016 if Carter Passes before that year.

It was actually printed in 2009. I have one too. If you look on the side of the coin it will say 2009 D.  1841 was when Harrison was president, not when the coin was made.  And it's brass, not gold.  I'm sorry to break this to you, but it's worth little more than its mint value.

It is a 2009 not 1841. Look on edge of coin. 1841 is the date of the presidency. It also is not gold. It just looks like it. It is worth 1-2 dollars.
