Remember my blog awhile back about the "In God We Trust" motto being removed
from the face of the new dollar coins? What's your take on THIS?
Coins circulating without ‘In God We Trust’
U.S. Mint admits to the goof with the new George Washington dollar
In this photo released by Professional Coin Grading Service, a George Washington dollar coin missing the edge inscription is seen. An unknown number of new dollar coins have gone into circulation without their edge inscriptions, including ‘In God We Trust,’ the U.S. Mint said Wednesday.
PHILADELPHIA - An unknown number of new George Washington dollar coins were mistakenly struck without their edge inscriptions, including “In God We Trust,” and are fetching around $50 apiece online.
The properly struck dollar coins, bearing the likeness of the nation’s first president, are inscribed along the edge with “In God We Trust,” “E Pluribus Unum” and the year and mint mark. The flawed coins made it past inspectors and went into circulation Feb. 15.
The U.S. Mint struck 300 million of the coins, which are golden in color and slightly larger and thicker than a quarter.
