I think they should also consider on beginning a new series about wildlife.
In my personal opinion that would be a refreshing and beautiful topic.


Thank you coin news. No wildlife, that is a tacky design just look at the new design they came up with for our American Eagle coins. It’s terrible and looks awful, at least on paper. The family of eagles was relevant wildlife as they are the national bird of America. The five ounce silver coins are good works of art, and represent each state individually. I dont think we need a lady slipper on the American Eagles anytime soon.
