Flying Ace

"President Coins" or "I like money"

The new $1 coin hits The American People today.  Starting with George Washington and continuing down the presidential line with 4 presidents a year, the US mint is hoping these coins catch on.  Me too.  I like dollar coins though I suspect they'll never *really* catch on until we get rid of the dollar bill...which takes an act of congress.  IE: Not bloody likely.

Still, I like coins and US Presidents so for me its a win.  And yes, I do realize that every coin I keep is that much in $ that I'm basically giving to Uncle Sam.

See Golden George, John, Tom & James!
