I’ve always liked this series.


These people are getting out of hand with these coin acts. Kids won’t be able to tell who’s on the dollar coin, or what’s on the back of a quarter. American money has lost its identity, and this isn’t something taxpayer dollars should go towards.


Maybe they’ll do another coin and currency set with an enhanced finish. Those have pretty low mintages and look decent. But really, as long as the dollar bill is in use getting Americans to accept a circulating dollar coin is a hopeless quest. These will be minted in sets, stored away, and appear only in collections and the Red Book.
