Subject: New Nickels, any opinions?

Written By: MooRocca on 05/26/04 at 1:26 pm

Just saw the new Louisiana Purchase nickels, wondering if anyone else has seen them and is less than enthused.  It's bad enough that it's a year late for the 200th anniversary, but unless they're trying to symbolize something other than the purchase agreement, they actually managed to get the participants wrong.    :-[

I agree.

Leave the money alone.  Its ironic that it costs money to change the money we already had and used in the first place.

The first time I saw one, I thought, "How did a video arcade token wind up in my pocket???"

I had no clue they were even changing until the tooth fairy brought one for my daughter.  I don't like them.

Couldn't agree more.  Why, if I had a nickel for every time they... on second thought, scratch that.  ;D

They're now minted a new Buffalo Nickel. It's not the same as the oldie.  Unfortunately they're going to return the Monticello reverse.  That took creativity  >:(

Thanks Jiminy :)  The bison's d*ck is actually controversial.  Maybe they'll be a "No Wiener" variety  ;D
