#Metoo. No pun intended.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Crystal Lee Sutton (the inspiration for the movie Norma Rae)
And for fun:
All of the Golden Girls (Betty, Bea, Rue, and Estelle)
Or better yet, stick with allegorical representations of Liberty.
So that would eliminate Eleanor Roosevelt, Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Dolly Madison, etc. Helen Keller is already on a state quarter.
I can see Amelia Earhart, but the list is thin. I always knew about Sally Ride. But I am old. Betsy Ross? Harriet Tubman, but she is slated for currency? Clara Barton.
Babe Didrikson Zaharias.
Yea that series was gold.
As of now no. That effort was abandoned and there's not a new design planned until 2030 so the decision obviously hasnt been made what it will be and probably wont be until after another presidential election which would have implications on who the Treasury Secretary is
Four years, 20 coins. then we get a year celebrating the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, and then five years of youth sports.
Final design choice is made by the Secretary of the Treasury.
And maybe these will get some women interested in collecting. The hobby is too male dominated.
- Edited - Wymyn Quarters.” How about some more mainstream choices - Edited - ? Some suggestions: Amelia Earhart, Ayn Rand, Betsy Ross, Margaret Mitchell, Jean Kirkpatrick. Oh, yeah, that’ll cause some howling from certain quarters. (Pun intended.)
- Edited - . Very annoying.
I have to agree. The U.S. Mint is going to assassinate numismatics in the same manner as the U.S. Postal Service killed stamp collecting. Putting out WAY too much material annually and charging an arm and a leg for proof sets, mint sets, etc. This is why a lot of collectors don’t focus on moderns much.
Yeah. Coins have become the new hobby horse of the politicians - Edited - .
But it will be all for naught. Coins simply don’t circulate much anymore like they used to. Credit and debit cards and online transaction processors like PayPal have all just about done-in coins and currency. I will be surprised if the government doesn’t try to completely abolish coins and banknotes before the middle of this century arrives.
Here is a record of how many stamps the USPS has issued since 1847. This is based upon Scott Numbers. Notice that the first 2 groups take in many more years by covering the first 102 years. Then I have them by decade. I started collecting in 1948 and I quit in about 2001.
USPS Stamp Issues
1847 to 1899 293
1900 to 1949 693
1950 to 1959 152
1960 to 1969 247
1970 to 1979 408
1980 to 1989 643
1990 to 1999 931
2000 to 2009 1065
I'd like to see the return of a GOOD rendition of Miss Liberty.
As a former stamp dealer, I could not agree more. It's like killing the goose that laid the golden egg.
Ayn Rand? Since when do we put people that were born and educated in Russia on our coinage?
