The 'Washington Pieces' dating from 1783 to 1795 featured the image of George Washington, but those were medals, not coins.

The commemorative Lafayette dollar issued in 1900 also featured George Washington (and the Marquis de Lafayette), and was the first coin to do so.

The first coin intended for circulation to feature a president was the cent, which for Abraham Lincoln's 100 birthday changed to a design featuring him.
