Buchanan Coin To Be Unveiled In Lancaster

LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) – The U.S. Mint is coming to Lancaster to unveil a new dollar-coin commemorating former President James Buchanan. It will be the 15th coin in the presidential $1 coin program.

Mint officials will be doing the ceremonial coin launch later this month at Wheatland, the former president’s home.

Buchanan, the nation’s 15th president, was president from 1857 to 1861. He’s the only U.S. president born in Pennsylvania.
