    U.S. gov't to release new dollar coins - Yahoo! News

    we already have a coin and the $1 bill with Washington on it, but why the fuck do we need ANOTHER coin with him on it?? its gonna be kinda confusing to some people because you know some idiots are gonna confuse that coin with the quarter.

    thoughts on this?

    we are going to get some dollars where 90% of U.S. citizens look at the coins and say, "who the fuck is this?"

    it's the damn coin collectors fault....:ph34r:

    we should make a $2 coin like canada, eh?

    This means both bush's will have a coin...:ph34r:

    If these do come out I have a feeling I will be collecting them. That is really the only reason I could see them being worth any thing. When was the last time any of you guys used a golden dollars?

    i use the golden dollar coins at work only because the stupid change machine gives them to you when you change in a $5 bill because its the only bill you happen to have in your wallet. other than that, i just add em to my change jar i got.

    The train gives them to you too. Then when I use them at a convenience store I get a dirty look like I'm paying in Euros or something.

    the presidential dollar series is a collector item issue. it is not if, it has already been passed by congress and the first issues are due out in early march.

    If you spend these for $1 face, you're an idiot.

    Also, the sack dollars haven't been released to the public since 2002.


    how come no one bitches about the $1 silver eagles? oh noes! another dollar!!1111

    i bet most of you don't even know what they are.

    there will be no clinton nor bush coins.

    the rule is, the pres must be deceased for over 4 years by the time his con comes time to mint. As of right now, the event stops with reagan. clitnon and bush senior would have to die within the next 2 years to get a coin.

    as far as a collectable goes, these coins will end up just like the state quaters , worthless, they will be mass produced and worth a $1
