2007 Dollar coin.......Did you know?


Recommended Posts

I found some of this interesting. Its from the Presidential dollar coin bill that passed congress and now awaits action by the senate.


COIN REVERSE- The design on the reverse shall bear--


(i) a likeness of the Statue of Liberty extending to the rim of the coin and large enough to provide a dramatic representation of Liberty while not being large enough to create the impression of a `2-headed' coin;




(i) IN GENERAL- The inscription of the year of minting or issuance of the coin and the inscriptions `E Pluribus Unum' and `In God We Trust' shall be edge-incused into the coin.


INSCRIPTIONS OF `LIBERTY'- Notwithstanding the 2d sentence of subsection (d)(1), because the use of a design bearing the likeness of the Statue of Liberty on the reverse of the coins issued under this subsection adequately conveys the concept of Liberty, the inscription of `Liberty' shall not appear on the coins.


NONCONSECUTIVE TERMS- If a President has served during 2 or more nonconsecutive periods of service, a coin shall be issued under this subsection for each such nonconsecutive period of service. (2 Grover Cleveland coins)


REVERSION TO PRECEDING DESIGN- Upon the termination of the issuance of coins under this subsection, the design of all $1 coins shall revert to the so-called `Sacagawea-design' $1 coins.

And back to the Sac! They can do better than that.


Hey! I like the Sac!


And I like the idea of sticking the cumbersome phrases on the edge, I thought they should have done that for the sac.


As for the rest... :ninja:

"Well originally the Statue of Liberty is from France... am I going to assume that politics has caused the coin designs to go stale as the relationship of US and France are not at the best times ever? "


Liberty has been on US coins since at least 1793, long before the

Statue of Liberty.

Please, Please, Please I pray they do not make this coin.

Lord hear our prayer.


I agree. The whole Presidental Dollar Coin thing is stupid. Get rid of rags and Sacs will circulate.



Does not intend to collect these travesties. :ninja:

This is just another long series so the mint can keep raking in the money. The state quarter theme made the mint a fortune, they just want to keep it going.


I don't mind them making the money they are making. But they really need to take a few million and hire a real company to sell their products for them.

And, just think, the First Spouses will be in gold! This tells you just how far our Congressmen/Congresswomen are out of touch with the real world. And amazingly enough they REALLY don't have a clue, most of the time, what they are voting on or for! The only thing they worry about are the under the table bribes to get them to vote on a bill numbered, such and such, and they don't care other than that. Free health care and a great pension for the rest of your life, why would you want to care?

"`(ii) an inscription, using Arabic numerals, of the value of the coin; and"


what the?!?


Gump what is your concern? Would you prefer to keep the value written in longhand English? I like the Arabic numerals as they are on the gold/platinum eagles and think it would look interesting. The dollar sign is a new touch (other than platimun) as well. The roman numerals on the old gold is a nice change also.
