About Ronald Reagan

He ordered Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall; his Strategic Defense Initiative shook the USSR when it was already prepared to collapse; he helped bring Republicans back together after Nixon’s Watergate scandal; and his economic plan boosted the economy for 20 years. Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States, accomplished many notable victories in his eight years in office. Today, Americans remember his works with commemorative tokens such as stamps and the Ronald Reagan coin. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth, the United States Postal Service released a Forever stamp in 2011. These stamps are still available today, and philatelists can find a selection of older new and cancelled stamps celebrating Ronald Reagan’s achievements via eBay’s reputable sellers. A variety of coins featuring the former president are also easy to find, including silver-plated, gold-plated and fully colored coins in excellent condition. Memorabilia such as these stamps and coins won’t last forever, so collect them while they’re still around to be appreciated.
