Quote from: eurocoin on January 27, 2018, 08:57:30 AMI would like to see a new coin series of Suriname. The majority of the designs on them has been in use for 55 years now.
Quote from: Figleaf on January 27, 2018, 11:57:08 AMI would like to see a major overhaul of US circulating coins.
Quote from: onecenter on January 27, 2018, 08:14:35 PM I would not mind a return to the design era of 1907-1947 when sculptors such as Augustus St. Gaudens and Adolph Weinmann designed our coins ($10 and $20 gold, and the silver half dollar and dime, respectively and the current obverse of the American silver eagle).In particular, and one of my personal favorites, is the flying eagle design of Christian Goebrecht in the 1830's, used for a silver dollar denomination in 1836 and later for the short series of 1856 (pattern) and 1857-1858 Flying Eagle cents.
QuoteWe have 56 quarter dollars for states and territories and 56 national parks, why not the 56 men who staked their lives and fortunes on the American experiment?
QuoteOn the most radical end of the spectrum, and I sure few people in my country would support such radical change, is the total redenomination of the dollar, at a rate of 100 to 1. Coins would more readily circulate again and have real purchasing power. The only coin that really circulates continuously in the USA is the quarter dollar.
Quote from: onecenter on January 27, 2018, 10:14:12 PMAnd yes, the value of the current US$ would be equivalent to one cent in a redenominated dollar. Critics of the Federal Reserve System of Banks have referred to the value of the dollar having declined to just one cent since the creation of the current banking system in 1913!
