Quote from: chrisild on May 14, 2016, 12:03:25 PMMaybe that US ambassador should have a brief look at his country's $20 bill, featuring Andrew Jackson of "Indian Removal" fame. Contrary to that paper money, those Romanian coins will certainly not circulate. Guess the mintage will be less than 1,000 again (have not looked it up), surcharged, for collectors only.I agree, if such a collector coin honored one person only, it would in this case have been better to not issue it. But obviously it features several central bank governors. Leaving one out would be strange, I think. Remember that Belgian series of gold pieces honoring the country's kings? They merely put each of them on a coin, including Leopold II who exploited his "personal colony" in Congo in a cruel way. But again, it was a chronological series, not some coins honoring "the best" kings ...Christian

However, I hear they're entertaining putting Harriette Tubman on the $20 bill in place of Jackson. How far this will go is anyones guess.
