1 dollar George Washington

Bust of George Washington in three-quarter view, facing to the left, wearing a parliamentary wig and a high-collared shirt and jacket. He is looking straight ahead with quite a severe expression on his face. In the bottom right-hand corner of his jacket collar is written in tiny lettering "JFM". At the top of the coin is written "GEORGE WASHINGTON" and at the bottom of the coin is written "1st PRESIDENT 1789 - 1797".

On all presidential dollars, the Statue of Liberty in left-facing three-quarter profile, viewed from below. The folds of her robe are in stark relief and she is holding a book in her left hand (on the book is written in tiny lettering "DE") and the liberty torch aloft in her right hand. Just to the left of Liberty's armpit is written "$1". A circle surrounds the statue, dissected by the torch on the left and the book on the right. Outside of this circle, starting from Liberty's torso on the left, is written in a ring "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA". This is bissected by the flame of the torch between STATES and OF.

As for all presidential dollars, the edge is engraved with ten stars, the year and the mint mark followed by three stars and then the motto 'E PLURIBUS UNUM". Coins issued before 2009 also have "IN GOD WE TRUST" engraved along the edge, with a bullet point separating the two phrases.
