Let me know what you think about my new weekly CoinWeek colum
Another great article.
I agree it's probably time to drop the Lincoln Cent as a circulation coin, and to make the five-cent piece our lowest denomination coin.
I think we should go one step further and make the dime the lowest coined denomination.
I would be in favor, however, of keeping the Lincoln in Mint and Proof Sets for collectors -- no issue with production costs vs. face value in the sets!
100% agreed, but one step further... make the now NIFC cent 95% copper.
I like the new reverse and find it a nice change after looking at the Lincoln Memorial for so long. I find the design of the "Shield" reverse to be simple, clean and uncluttered -- all positive characteristics for a small sized coin.
I have to agree here as well.
