I'd have to say that it is without doubt the 1993 Jefferson commemorative dollar. It looks little like the Jefferson portraits, and when I saw it, at first glance I honestly thought it was commemorating Babe Didrikson Zaharius.

I know it probably sounds like I was trying to be a smart alec, but I really wasn't. I think the coin could have been much more like Jefferson. Here's a picture of Babe Zaharius, just so you can see it like I did.

Nickels! All nickels. IMHO nickel is an ugly corrosive metal. Buffalo nickels are ok but I don't collect any nickels. I think franklins are fine in general, but I find his profile hideous.

Gotta agree with both of these. The modern dollars often feel uninspired or just poorly inspired.

The Presidential dollars are just plain ugly to me, the 3/4 profile just isn't a good look, the ones that opted for a side profile are alright to me but don't make up for the rest of them

I agree. I like the series, but I hoped it was going to look better than it did.

The portrait of Reagan is pretty bad: why is he grinning like that?

The image is taken from a real photo, the same photo used for the 2016 Coin and Chronicles set. The grin is somewhat accurate, however poorly executed.

Another thing I noticed is that the portraits of the first half dozen presidents look "puffy".

I keep saying I am a "newbie" but when it comes to modern coins, I have just about the same opinion I have of modern postage stamps... mostly awful designs, awful "print quality", awful subject matter. BUT HEY, who am I?

Nobody...

I love Special Olympics, but the portrait on that coin leaves a lot to be desired.
