About this Product Full Product Name
The 2015 Harry S. Truman Presidential Dollar

Born in 1884, Truman was the 33rd President of the United States. He succeeded to the Presidency in 1945 after the untimely death of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Under Truman, WWII was successfully brought to an end, however, it also marked the beginning of the Cold War and the increasing tensions with the Soviet Union.

Truman is most famously known as the President that approved the use of atomic weapons against Japan, with its intension being to force Japan's surrender and spare American lives. The decision remains controversial today.

His Presidency was a turning point in foreign affairs as it was a move away from isolationist policies to those of an internationalist. Following the conclusion of WWII, Truman assisted in the founding of the United Nations, issued the Truman Doctrine to contain communism, and pass the $13 billion Marshall Pan to rebuild Europe including the Axis Powers (Germany and its allies).

On the domestic front, Truman successfully guided the American economy through post-war economic challenges, made Civil Rights a moral priority, and submitted the first comprehensive legislation on the topic.

Popular and scholarly assessments of Truman's presidency were initially low, but became more positive over time, following his retirement from politics.

The historic Presidential Dollar series began in 2007 with coins for George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. This is the FIRST coin program in U.S. History to honor all of America's Presidents, and it is destined to be the most popular collection in history, even BIGGER and more popular than the State Quarters!

This is a 2015 Philadelphia Uncirculated Coin in a Capsule - Harry S. Truman
