These four coins honor the twenty-first through the twenty-fourth Presidents of the United States – Chester Arthur, Grover Cleveland (1st Term), Benjamin Harrison and Grover Cleveland (2nd Term). This set is unique because it includes two different strikes honoring Grover Cleveland as he is the only US President to have served to non-consecutive terms as US President.

This series first debuted in 2007 and honors the former Presidents in the order in which they served with a release rate of four new coins a year. The first coin to appear in the series was the George Washington Presidential $1 Coin.
