WASHINGTON — Can George be successful where Sacagawea and Susan failed?

 

The U.S. Mint on Monday is unveiling designs for its newest additions: dollar coins that will feature deceased presidents on a rotating basis, similar to the popular state quarters.

 

The coins will enter circulation with George Washington on Feb. 15, four days before President's Day, and will be gold in color like the Sacagawea to distinguish them from other coins. Like the Sacagawea, they will be slightly larger than the quarter.

Now that I finally see the design, I like it a lot. The edge lettering is a nice touch. These would make much more sense if they stopped making Sacs. I will probably get one or two, but I am going to pass on collecting them like state quarters - at least that's what I say now.
