U.S. Government to Release New Dollar Coins...will you accept them?

U.S. Government to Release New Dollar Coins
Is the united states truly ready to retry the dollar coin? "The mint will issue four presidential $1 coins per year through 2016. In 2008, four coins featuring the images of James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren are scheduled to be released."
The newest $1 coin, bearing the likeness of George Washington, was rolled out Thursday, with the U.S. Mint hoping Americans will want to buy George.

The Mint is making sure the coins, which are golden in color and slightly larger and thicker than a quarter, will be widely available.

The Federal Reserve, the Mint's distribution agent, has placed orders for 300 million of the Washington coins. Many have already been delivered to commercial banks under orders not to begin circulating th

  • The design on the coin will change every three months, featuring a new president in the order in which they served. In that way, the Mint hopes to attract a following similar to the more than 125 million collectors who are participating in the 50-state quarter program.

    Mint Director Edmund C. Moy said Congress made the decision to keep the dollar bill as part of new dollar coin legislation in 2005. "Congress designed the Presidential $1 Coin program to build on the success of the 50 State Quarters Program and give Americans coins they will enjoy using and collecting over time ," said U.S. Mint spokesperson, Carolyn Fields.
    After Washington, the presidents honored this year will be John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. The program is scheduled to run into 2016. A president must have been dead at least two years to appear on a coin.

    Personally, I could care less about this... A dollar is a dollar and not everybody believes in God. I don't want the dollar coin because that's just more crap in my change purse... Show me the Paper!!!

    According to the constitution, it SHOULDN'T be on there! The government shouldn't show deference to any one religion
