    Is the united states truly ready to retry the dollar coin? "The mint will issue four presidential $1 coins per year through 2016. In 2008, four coins featuring the images of James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren are scheduled to be released."

    You guessed it 'IN GOD WE TRUST' IS GONE!!! If ever there was a reason to boycott something, THIS IS IT!!!!
    DO NOT ACCEPT THE NEW DOLLAR COINS AS CHANGE. Together we can force them out of circulation.[

    Well, technically it is just moved to the outside edge of the coin.

    Thanks Ken.

    Kind of curious that the "Golden Dollar's overall composition" contains 0% gold.

    "Section 10. No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation; grant letters of marque and reprisal; coin money; emit bills of credit; make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts; pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts, or grant any title of nobility." - Article 1 Section 10 U.S. Constitution​

    Yeah, I just heard about it while watching TV while walking on my treadmill.

    Some of the coins from the Philadelphia mint apparently skipped the edging process and thus none of the edge inscriptions are on them. It's just one of those goofs that make collectibles even more collectible.

    As someone who likes history I plan to subscribe to the yearly proof set of these coins. It only cost about $15 for all four coins.

    If you want to boycott them, I would suggest you not buy booklets of first class stamps at a post office with a $20 bill in the machine. Before long you'll be getting dozen of them back in change when you do that.

    As for boycotting money... maybe that's for another thread.

    I'll accept that the misprint of the coins at the mint was not intentional, as mint errors have been around as long as the mints.

    But what is intentional, in addition to the total removal of the word, liberty, is the removal of the two mottos of "In God We Trust" and "E Pluribus Unum" from the face of the coin. This has been shaded with the removal of the "mint mark" as well to the rim. Wanna' guess what is the least observed part of any part of a coin? And why do we need the name of a President as famous as Geo. Washington on the face for identification? I realize that Presidents John Tyler, James Buchannan, Andrew Johnson, or James Garfield, to name a few, might have faces not as well known as, say, Washington, Lincoln or Eisenhower to name three, but there still should have been room for the mottos, on the obverse, the mint mark on the reverse, and couldn't the names have been placed on the rim?

    Too bad they didn't ask each and every American for his opinion, huh?

    No kidding. A poll would have probably done the trick without asking everyone, but that is only my opinion.

    Of course it's intentional. It's the way they designed it and formed the casts. It's also a non-issue.

    The "president's series" coins offer some interesting scenarios:

    • Will they only mint William Henry Harrison dollars for a few days...the length of his presidency?
    • Will the Nixon dollar only be distributed to incarcerated people?
    • Will you be able to read the lips of the Bush 41 dollar?
    • Would ANYONE put a Clinton dollar in their pocket? :eek:
    • Could you trade a Reagan dollar to an Iranian for a hostage?
    • Carter dollars should be interesting...they will start out worth a buck. Four years later, they'll be worth 11 cents.
    • Will there be any grammatical errors on the Bush 43 dollar?
    • Will Florida receive Bush or Gore dollars? Can they vote on it?
    :laugh:

    Now ya'll be nice...I was non-partisan...

    It may well be a "non-issue", but it goes against some unwritten principles of our coinage for many years.
