We need another special quarters series about like we need a hole in the head.
Now, do we need 5 new designs every year? No. But the alternative of possibly 1 design for the next several decades is worse in my opinion.
But seriously, maybe 3 or 4 new quarters year instead of the five would be better.
Something to mess with, but not overwhelm.
With 55 coins in a series, you don't want to drag it out too long. 11 years for a series is already long enough! There might be some excitement the first couple of years, but almost everyone gets bored by the end. People were really excited the first few years of the State quarters, but then got bored by the end. People got a little excited for the America the Beautiful quarters at the beginning, but interest faded even faster for those (although, many would argue that these are significantly better than the state quarters). With these new Innovation Dollars, I'm hearing a huge sigh of apathy.... I can only image how bored people will be at the end of that series!
As for quarter series, just the other day I was thinking about this. I like the animal idea, not necessarily doing one from each state, but featuring various animals native to the country or maybe focusing on our endangered species. Another idea I had was maybe artists, whether one from each state or not, to recognize the cultural contributions of our authors, painters, architects, musicians, etc. Dunno if either of these will ever happen or what the next plan is for the US Mint when the ATB series is up.
Well Meow CRHs everyday, so having new items to hunt for is great. Innovation Dollars are not circulated, so Meow has zero interest in them. It just Meow feels five quarters a year was just a little too much.
