Andrew Jackson served two terms in office from 1829 to 1837. Prior to becoming President, he was the first person from Tennessee to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, and he also was elected to the U.S. Senate. Jackson served as major general in the War of 1812 and was commander of U.S. forces that defeated the British at the battle of New Orleans. He was known as "Old Hickory" due to his reputation for being very tough. He dominated American politics for many years.

The United States Mint has issued more than one billion Presidential $1 Coins in the order the Presidents served, starting with the George Washington Presidential $1 Coin in February 2007. Andrew Jackson was the seventh President, and he is being honored with the seventh Presidential $1 Coin.
