Has anyone noticed - Or why is the New Hampshire Innovation dollar 90 degrees rotated Obverse to Reverse?

The rotated orientation enables the depiction of the TV screen showing the early video game ("Handball") to be in the proper orientation (as seen on a TV screen) when the coin is flipped between obverse and reverse in the normal way.

I actually like it. Much more than I expected, but I have generally like the Innovation dollars. I just don't like dead presidents on coins.

The AI series is growing on me too; I'm glad I started at the beginning.

And the NH issue is a huge departure from anything we've ever seen on a US coin (at least, that I can remember). For that reason and several others, I like it.

I have to agree, the more I look at the designs the more I like them. I'm having second thoughts on skipping this series...

I am getting more excited about them and cannot wait to get them into an album. For now they rest in their OGP.
