Thanks for sharing it with us. It will be a useful one to clear the doubts about the system and understand it.

I gave my granny a p.r. and a d.c. she has my only proof that they are out there. Go to the laundromat or car wash and put twenty after twenty in the change machine until you score

we got a couple of the Puerto Rico quarters - here's the design that apparently took forever to come up with: Fort San Cristobal, a flower & (if my dollar store reading glasses ain't lyin') the motto "Isla del Encante".
good surf down there,bro, why not have that, Rosie Perez & some Bacardi on the quarter, knowhatimsayin

Where are my Lincoln Bicentennial pennies? I've got a brochure listing 3 or 4 new reverse designs for pennies but I've never seen 'em.

I still have a sheet of Elvis Presley stamps.

The Northern Marianas one should have Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay on it.

I've got every 2009 quarter, and have received one new 2009 Lincoln cent in change (got the rest in Proof set).

Here's an idea: ask your bank...

Putting the flying proa on a quarter is really cool.That was the fastest boat type in the world until right at the end of the 19th century.

Every 6 weeks or so my dad would go to the credit union and ask for the new quarter and he would pick up a few for me, my mother, and her sister, who lived with us until they died. When the presidential dollar coins came out, you could ask for those as well and try to keep up with them (does anyone else think the dollar coins look sort of like arcade tokens?).

But this year the credit union says they don't get regular shipments of the new coins, so there's no point asking for them, thus you have to either get them in change or order from the US mint. So far i got the DC and Puerto Rico quarters.
I can still ask for dollar coins, though. The credit union also doesn't stock the new pennies, though so far i've managed to get three of the four designs in change (one today, in fact).

You can go to the US mint web site (usmint(dot)gov) and look under "Coins and Medals" you can see the designs for various coins.

Apparently starting in 2010 they're starting the "America the Beautiful Quarters" program, commemorating various national parks. I guess they can't get enough of that collector excitement. Whatever.

Meanwhile, has anyone seen the Native American Dollar coins? There's supposed to be one per year in addition to the presidential coins. And don't forget the First Spouse Gold Coins. For Presidents who didn't have a living wife during their administration, they use some image of Liberty as a placeholder (you'd think for Thomas Jefferson they should have put on Sally Hemings, though.) Not that anyone spends $10 gold pieces.

One more note, I wonder if, as in the Great Depression, mintages are down?
