Milking it for all it's worth...

And, in our ever continuing tribute to the Buffalo Nickel (aka Milking It For All It's Worth)

 

From the recent coin legislation authorizing the Pres Dollars:

 

Instructs the Secretary to strike and issue for sale $20 gold bullion coins initially bearing the original designs by James Earle Fraser, which appear on the 5-cent coin commonly referred to as the "Buffalo nickel" or the "1913 Type 1."

There is still copper, platinum, palladium and a few more metals left to do as well as plastic and wood. :ninja:

It's getting embarassing to be from the US :ninja:

Note that it will be a $20 bullion coin, not a double eagle. This means the gold buffalo would be a 1/5 ounce gold content coin (larger than 1/5 ounce if they maintain the 91.67% pure alloy currently in use on gold eagles) which would be roughly the diameter of a nickel.

A bill to require the Secretary of the Treasury to mint coins in commemoration of each of the Nation's past Presidents and their spouses, respectively to improve circulation of the $1 coin, to create a new bullion coin, and for other purposes.
Other purposes?

Don't blame the Mint, put the blame where it belongs, on our elected representatives who see us as a source of more revenue. Collectors are suckers, they'll buy anything. "If we strike it they will buy it."

Yes, raising revenue.
