Coins Updated February 22, 2007

My Paternal Units managed to secure me a roll of the new dollar coins at a bank today.  A roll is 25 new coins.  They are going to issue four new coins a year until 2016 ending with Nixon.  Except by then Ford, Reagan and (likely) Carter will be eligible so another 2017 edition likely. 

Okee doke.  I’m dedicated to picking up an uncirculated roll of every one of these issues, from both the Denver and Philadelphia mints for $400 a year.   Here’s an interesting fact – the mint mark and the traditional Latin unity slogan is inscribed on the edge of the coin this time around.

So are they thick coins, like £1 coins? Or did they make the feels-like-a-quarter mistake again? I have no idea what these puppies look like.

No, sorry. They are the same size & thickness as the Susan B. and the Amerindian chick. They’re sticking with the gold tone though, so at least visually it’s very different. As to how they look – well, I doubt you’ll like them much. Poor Madison looks like Quasimodo I’m afraid.

$400? How much does one dollar cost?

Whoops! You’re right – that’s not $400! It’s $200! Good thing I don’t have to do any sort of complicated math for a living eh?

Oops.
