No, only six so far.

I believe it's a little more than that. IIRC, the president must have been dead for a period of time (two years?) before they'll release the coin.

If more than one dies before 2014, the coins will run into 2017. They don't list a release date for Reagan just because they don't know if he'll be the Q3 release (if Carter survives) or the Q4 release (if he doesn't).

Since I'm a bit of a collector, this is nice just because sometimes the convenient banks don't seem to have the coins.
