The obverse portraits that will appear on the 2016 Presidential dollars honoring Richard M. Nixon and Gerald R. Ford were announced late Dec. 4 by the U.S. Mint.

The Nixon portrait was designed and sculptured by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Donald Everhart II. The Ford portrait was designed and sculptured by U.S. Mint Medallic Sculptor Phebe Hemphill.

The obverse portraits were approved June 24, 2014, by Deputy Treasury Sarah Bloom Raskin, according to U.S. Mint spokesman Michael White.
