    I don't think any of us "mature" members appreciate change. I know I don't. LOL

    What a HORRIBLE, TRANSPHOBIC thing to say!
    How proud you must be of your bigotry and hatred.

    Transpeople do EXACTLY WHAT that affects you? NOTHING!!!

    I like the new version that is the first version of G W that we now see. Great to see some changes in our US coinage!

    Styles change throughout time. That was a predominant, "gentlemanly" style of the day. If you look at the Lansdowne portrait from 1796, you can clearly see the ribbon tying his ponytail in the back. That portrait shows Washington with much longer and pronounced sideburns. But, the Gibbs-Channing-Avery portrait from a year prior shows him with much less pronounced sideburns and a higher rise of the hair above the ears as seen on the Fraser design.

    Perhaps the lack of fullness and volume to Washington's hair lends to your view, but it certainly is an accurate depiction based on the portraits we have available for him.

    The Washington design has been around since 1932. I was born in 1947 so I have been noticing it when I was five or so, and started collecting it a couple of years later. Sometimes change is hard, in this case I'm quite comfortable with the new portrait. The reverse is a tasteful and thoughtful remembrance of Maya and the gifts she has left for us. Looking forward to see the rest of the series.

    I have only received one in change and I gave it to the young lady at the market who gave me my change from a purchase. She thanked me for it and was happy I brought it to her attention and an essential part of the attraction and avocation of our pasttime.

    It's worth noting that this design won the contest to design the original Washington quarter obverse, which was initially intended to be a one-year commemorative issue. The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts recommended her design above all the others. The Secretary of the Treasury ignored that recommendation, and picked Mr. Flanagan's design instead, not that we know whether the gender of the designer played a role in that decision. (Winks, nods, and eyerolls all around, whatever your political leanings.)

    I'd like to think that offhand comments about transgender people, insufficiently "manly-looking" men, and/or whatever else don't really belong here.

    I go through my pocket change from time to time. The coins I don't like, I put it into my wife's coin jar. That said, I'm not a fan of the new George and the only "new" quarter that I like and will keep are Dr. Sally Ride's quarters. I did get the Silver Proof Set and the Uncirculated Coin Set this year. I went through the State Sets and the Park Sets and I won't do that again.

    You don't have to understand my choice of punctuation, you just have to accept it. ;)
