As its slogan suggests, the U.S. Mint really is
changing the face of money. With its recently released Golden Dollar and 50
State Quarters Program, the Mint has revived the interest in money as art,
for numismatists and amateur collectors alike.
The Mint's newest release is the Golden Dollar, a showy replacement for the Susan B. Anthony Dollar. The old coin was easily mistaken for the quarter because of
its size and composition. Learn how the design was chosen,
view the timeline of
development and meet Susan B. Anthony's replacement,
If you've flipped over your quarters recently, you've probably seen
something other than the customary eagle. For the first time since
the 1975-76 Bicentennial Quarter, the Mint has redesigned the 25-cent coin.
The 50 State Quarters Program honors each
state with a unique design. The program was unveiled last year with five
states: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia and Connecticut. Five
states will be released each year until 2008. Wondering when your
state will be in your pocket?
