A new U.S. dollar coin...again!

If you first don't succeed, try, try again...

The U.S. Mint is once again pursuing the dollar coin for mainstream uses. Their first initial attempt, Susan B. Anthony/Sacagawea coin, didn't fare well with the public because the dollar bill still existed. For this attempt, they will be using George Washington's image. They will be putting images of future presidents in future editions of the coin, similar to how they release different emblems for the quarters.

The difference between this attempt and the previous release is the media hype surrounding the new dollar coin. With the Internet, TV, and other media blitzing the news across the world, banks are already reporting consumer interest in the dollar coin.

Interested in one? In a few weeks, just go to the bank!
