@Lehigh96 will be my choice for the nickel as he is the first one I think of when it comes to that denomination....plus we can save a lot of expenses if we use his avatar as the design.
@robec is my pick for the cent...this one has more contenders but he stands out for me
@GDJMSP gets the main spot on the $100 by being the elder statesman of the forum
@Peter T Davis On the $20. What other site re our hobby beats Coin Talk?
Totally appropriate. After all, he did teach Ben Franklin everything that he knows!
everything Randy. I always was much better with the ladies than he was
Now that is saying somethin'!!
Well, if it is up to me, I would keep the Jefferson Nickel and return it to its original glory. Raise the relief of the obverse back up what it was in 1938. With technological advancements at the mints, they should have no problem handling that relief and achieving full strikes.
The reverse I would change. While I like Monticello, I abhor the Full Step designation as a indicator of full strike and the strike designation doesn't mean anything if virtually every coin achieves Full Steps. I would change the reverse design to a quill pen and ink well to commemorate the fact that Jefferson was the primary author of the Declaration of Independence.
You could only wish...
A very cogent offering and one many would enjoy seeing, IMO.
Suggestions for the dime, quarter, half and dollar coins?
I decided to only offer a few and let others fill in the rest. I don't want to do all the work.
Penny: Bring back the Lincoln Memorial reverse
Nickel: Bring back the orig 1938 designs, although wouldn't be opposed to the suggestion for the reverse of the quill and ink, maybe parchment, etc.
Dime: As is...no change.
Quarter: Bring back the original 1932 obv and rev.
Half: OK...buckle-up, folks. Liked JFK...loved the last 55 years on the half...but like Cape Canaveral, renamed Cape Kennedy but after 20-30 years reverted back to Cape Canaveral...time to return to Franklin, who was only there for 15 years to be interrupted in 64 after Kenney's assassination in Nov 63. Bring Franklin back, as is/was both obv and rev.
@paddyman98 will be featured on the "oops it wasn't intentional" error coins.
An excellent choice! I agree.
@lordmarcovan on something. How about a high relief dollar coin?
It has to be eclectic...how about a brand new 40 cent piece (the new quadruple dime )
Make sure there is a strategically placed hole in the coin!
