Yeah that is cool news. I hope they don't make very many or over-charge. I think we need Washington on the cents and make it half and half, then a Lincoln Quarter. Why not make our coins interesting?

every year the US Mint becomes more and more like the postal service...producing way too much for collectors, a lot of it pretty gimmicky. i used to collect stamps back when they produced maybe 15-20 new ones a year. my dad used to collect proof and mint sets too. but you'd have to be a millionaire to buy all the stuff they are pumping out these days...it has become ridiculous.

I agree as well, buying at my shop I see the end result of these bad investments.
