Ugly coin in my opinion...

So pretty much 99% percent of coins?
Pretty much all modern US coins, for sure.
But you aren't referring to depictions of liberty? Makes sense
I suspect that the models for most classic coins are dead as well.
I like to think that Liberty is not dead, yet.
Very true, but the coins were never intended to really depict that person. They depict an idea. I don't really care to look at Jefferson's face.... I do care to think of the ideals of Liberty when I look at a coin design.
Blasphemy!! This happens to be the BEST looking coin, imo! One day I’ll own an example.
1. It replaced a cool design of Liberty that was already decided until some angry women's lobbyists demanded it be changed to a real woman for political purposes (that was the era of the ERA Amendment push).
Here is what the SBA was supposed to look like before the women's activists demanded it to be changed:
2. It awkwardly still used the Apollo 11 mission on the back, despite the fact she has nothing to do with space missions.
3. Too similar in size to quarters.
4. Political discussion/comment.
I agree! You would think they would have a better design for the shield pennies and those dang 2005 nickel.. every time I get change and see a bison, it fools me for a second!! Lol
Me too .
One of my favorite design, for sure ...
I had never seen this before. That would have made a very attractive dollar...... Prehaps the mint could consider expanding Lady Liberty from our bullion and returning her to our business currency.
