During our unit on money, we learned about the value of each coin and each bill. Mrs. Yollis had links about money on her class website. One of the links was about the new dollar coins that are being minted.
The United States Mint is making new $1 coins. Each coin has a president on the obverse, or front, and the Statue of Liberty on the reverse. The program started in 2007 and will end in 2017. All of the presidents will be minted on a coin in the order in which they served.
The designers put information on the edge of the coins. Each coin has "E Pluribus Unum", "In God We Trust", the year of minting, and the mint mark where it was made.
