WRONG! Don't always trust Wikipedia. From News Sources -

The total number of presidents scheduled to appear on coins is 37. That can change. The law prohibits living presidents from appearing, or former presidents who have died but, as president, succeeded one who's still alive.

That's why there's no plan yet for a Ronald Reagan coin, and won't be until Jimmy Carter dies.
