Richard Nixon To Be Honored With Presidential Coin
A March 1 postmark from Yorba Linda, Calif., commemorates Richard Nixon, the 37th president of the United States.
The Richard Nixon postmark is being offered almost one month after the release of the Richard Nixon $1 coin, which was issued by the U.S. Mint on Feb. 3.
For previous dollar coins in the Presidential series, the Mint has been offering commemorative covers postmarked with a similar pictorial cancel and holding two examples of the new coin. The postmark date has been described by the Mint in those examples as identifying the date of issue for the commemorative cover.
Part of the postmark design is styled after the obverse of the new coin, which shows the former president in profile facing left. Along the bottom edge of the design are the words “In God we trust,” and “37th president 1969-1974.”
Nixon was born in Yorba Linda on Jan. 9, 1913. He died April 22, 1994, and was commemorated on a 32¢ stamp issued April 26, 1995 (Scott 2955).
