I'm a coin lover and I couldn't be more outraged! I'm going to write my congressman and senator! Today!

Why not put him on the penny? It's the best choice, since he's Lincon's sucessor in spirit, and, more importantly, since the coin is quite literally worthless.

The great numismatist in the sky is keeping score on you guys. You're overdrawn on your credibility account.

Tim, are you saying that if we're not careful, people are going to think that our gag articles are jokes!

How could you say that!

Sadly I receive your articles via email by hysterical people who believe them. Too bad people have lost their sense of humor !

There were some one mill coins, issued by states; 1/10 of a cent. Used for sales tax. The US had half-cents.

How about a micro? One millionth of a dollar.

Obama hasn't even been in Office a year yet, and has accomplished very little to deserve such a honor. And he's still alive and still in office. Washington was one of the founding fathers, & the General that lead us into victory which allowed for our nation to be created...plus he is memorialized because he is no longer alive. This is outrageous! This coin demand has never been made of any other standing presidential administration of the modern era. If this precedent is allowed to stand, then every administration herein change change the quarter in their own image like they do in dictatorships.

This is a great post. I just had one of the ‘Doh!’ moments and ran back to correct my own site before publishing my comment. You see my own comment form did not match what I’m about to advice. I get less comment than you, so never noticed any problem. I’ve changed it now anyway so here goes.
