Coming soon on new presidential dollar coins ó Old Hickory, Old Kinderhook, Old Man Eloquent and the Last of the Cocked Hats.

The U.S. Mint, the maker of the nationís coins, on Thursday is unveiling the stately images of the next four presidents whose faces will appear on the front of the shiny gold-colored dollar coins next year. James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren will be the new additions to the presidential dollar coin series that started with George Washington in February.

More than 800 million presidential coins were put into circulation in 2007, the Mint said. Those first four coins carried the images of Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.
More for collectors

Interesting that these have edge lettering - "Inscribed along the edge of the coin is the year of minting or issuance of the coin, and also the legends E Pluribus Unum and In God We Trust."

Also "The edge lettering does not occur at the same time as the minting of the coins, allowing for the natural occurrence of the lettering in either orientation"

Cool on that.

Edit: I just recalled that the ticket machine for our Light Rail system spits out Dollar Coins as change instead of bills.

No, they are all at the Post Office and at Chuck E. Cheeses. The things are a joke.

I was actually able to buy a cup of coffee this morning with a Sacagawea dollar.
