I believe Reagan should be used on a coin. I don't much like Reagan in the way he's now inaccurately portrayed by partisans. However, I would use their fervor to introduce him as the face of a reintroduced base-metal quarter eagle design.

I really like that idea but it would have to be phased in by eliminating the one and two dollar bills and severely reducing printing of five dollar bills followed by a base metal half eagle in say 5 years.
As for the design, I'm a little over dead people, why don't we use the incuse indian quarter and half eagle designs?
As for the composition and shape, I'm not really a bimetalic guy so I'm thinking 24mm dodecagonal copper for the quarter eagle and 30mm dodecagonal copper for the half eagle.(why dodecagonal? because its cool)

Anywho I don't mean to derail the thread but thats a really good idea.

I would prefer to see a two dollar coin, but that is just me.
