|KM#||426||Dates||2008||Notes||Presidential Dollar (James Monroe)|
James Monroe is three-quarter profile facing to the right, with gaze also falling to the right and not in the direction of the viewer. He has a cleft in his chin and short wavy hair which appears as though it is being blown back by the wind. He is wearing a neck cloth and high-collared jacket. On his collar to the right is written in tiny lettering "JFM". At the top of the coin is written "JAMES MONROE" and at the bottom of the coin is written "5th PRESIDENT 1817 - 1825".
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.
