President’s Message – Summer 2015

E-mail Print

Greetings NCC Members and Guests-

Two of the recent Coin of the Month topics for our meetings have been "Women on Coins" and "Animals on Coins."  Both make nice broad topics allowing for lots of material to be brought in.  Although most people only know of President's gracing our coins, for the first 100+ years Liberty was the centerpiece of half dimes, dimes, quarters, half dollars and dollar coins.  It was not until 1909 that President Lincoln was placed on the cent and began a change that would be finished in 1948.  The Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1947 was the last time Liberty was on a circulating coin.  As for animals, the Eagle has continued to be a mainstay on our coins.  Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey as the national bird.  Imagine all our coins with turkey's on them!  The state quarters allowed for a multitude of new animals to be displayed.  The horse on the Delaware quarter, Carolina Wren on the South Carolina quarter and cow on the Wisconsin quarter are but a few.  World coins open up additional possibilities for women and animals on coins.

There has also been a recent push to put a woman on a circulating bill.  The push was to change the $20 but more recently it looks like the $10 may be the bill to be changed.  There is ongoing discussion on whose effigy should grace the bill.  There is actually a website which gives more information.
