  1. I think its getting kind of cheesey now. I'm thinking that after the territory quarters they should just use a single redisgn of the quarter and let it be for a while. Its been 11 years since we have had a single quarter. Put it on a dime or something!
  2. And what was the point of changing the coin in the first place?
  3. I look at it in a completely different way. To me, 217 million coins isnt a lot, because that means that there isnt enough for each person in the country to have one, and if I happen to have one, then that means somebody else will not
  4. I chose yes... I dont really have a "coin shop" in town. But ther is a store downtown that an older couple own, and the man sells coins out of the store...though his prices are little on the higher end.
  5. Those are pretty cool! Maybe the US mint will do something fun like that...But for some reason I dont forsee that happening!
  6. $32 for just the silver quarters is kinda high. Take a stroll by ebay and check out the prices there. $30 is about the price of 04 silver proof set and the 04 silver quarter set. The quarters alone shouldn't cost you anymore than $15-$20, and $20 is a little high (not counting shipping and handling)
  7. I never get any in change, but then again, I never get ANY silver in change anymore! Over the years I would say I have come to own about 6 or 7?
  8. I'm a male, age 19, almost 20. I put that I was married, although its not legal for me to marry my fiance.
  9. Wow that coin is BEAUTIFUL! Its like, perfect! Why dont you have it in a case or anything?
  10. I'm not too happy with the mint right now. We ordered a proof set and a silver proof set nearly a month ago. They held the money in the account for nearly two weeks, and never took it out. Then the hold dissapeared and the money was back in the account. Then today in the mail, we get the sets...and they take the money out NOW, overdrawing the account. Now all the banks are closed and no money can be put into the accounts until monday, and by then it will be too late.
  11. I never even knew that there were stamp vending mashines in the post office! Lol. I guess thats what I get for living in a small town!
  12. Thats pretty cool! Its too bad that you dont have the coins in there with it!

  14. Hahaha. I have also thought about that. At this time, it would probably be in the best intrestest of the US to actually do that. The USD is slipping more and more each day and is actually just about equal to the Canadian Dollar. But I think that if we "coinjoined" With our neighbors to the north and the south, then we would become a stronger and more economic partnership, able to compete with the Euro. We already have NAFTA, why not the Amero?
  15. I would have to say the first or the 2nd one. Too many planes in the 3rd one and it would be too hard to detail so many planes. The civil war pic obviously wouldnt pass. Too many people in the revolutionary war picture. When I think of the revoulutionary war, I think of the Tea Part prior, Washington crossing the river, and the British being sacked and surrendering in Yorktown I believe it was. However, I think triumphant things should be on our coins, so obviously I chose some of the most triumphant pictures: For the Revolutionary War I would have to say something like on the back of the $2 or so. I think the signing of the Declaration of Independence is the biggest event, surpassing all the military battles. For the Mexican American war, the obvious choice would be the Alamo, and although we lost that battle, it remained an icon, for their bravery. For the Civil War, I would probably say go with the firing on Fort Sumter as this started the war. Then you wouldnt have to choose between a battle where the north one or the south. Although the south were successful in taking the fort, I believe that this would be the best choice because its the start. I couldnt think of much for WW1, but I did come up with these. WW2: I couldnt really think of anything from Korea. But Vietnam was known for the helicopters used, so I thought this might do well. As for the gulf war, I'm not sure what to think. As the wars became more recent, cameras were allowing more photos, meaning less iconic ones like those of WW2.
