I heard today (from someone who apparently saw it in coin world) that they're coming out with a silver bullion roujnd/dollar that features the Mercury Dime liberty on the obverse. Can't find any pics or news online though.

This Is the Star Spangled Banner Comm. Dollar coin. There is also a $5 Gold coin.

 

What I meant is that I thought they'd use the lyrics on the coin somehow.

Oh, that's really sharp. This is the sort of thing I mean when I say commemoratives should be publicly commemorated, not just on bullion and NCLT issues--wouldn't you love to pull a piece like that out of your pocket? That Liberty and Flag obverse is terrific. That's the sort of design we need on our coins, not dead presidents!

MACHUPICCHU LIMITED EDITION COIN

ONE (1) NUEVO SOL 2011

COIN UNC

6TH EDITION - 15 JULY 2011

LIMITED EDITION COIN UNC

PERU ONE (1) SOL 2011 COIN LIMITED EDITION UNC

This is the 6th coin of the series "Wealth and Pride of Peru":

A century after gaining worldwide fame, Machu Picchu is the subject of a new coin from Peru.

 

The copper-nickel-zinc coin, released July 15, is the latest in Peru’s Wealth and Pride series of circulating commemorative 1-nuevo-sol coins.

The isolated complex nestled high in the Andes (2,430 meters, or 7,972 feet), sometimes referred to as the “Lost city of the Incas,” today is a major draw for tourism to the region.

It is believed to have been built in the mid-15th century as an estate for the Incan emperor Pachacuti, and was inhabited a mere 100 years before the population died off or slipped away. It was untouched by the Spanish conquistadors, who otherwise plundered and destroyed other similar sites in their conquests.
