Siamang brings to my attention that many of the 300,000,000 new George Washington dollar coins were incorrectly minted.
Approximately 299,950,000 of them have “In God We Trust” written on the edge.
(Ok, that’s not the story, but it would be a damn good headline, yes?)Yahoo says the 50,000 coins lacking the phrase have only been spotted in Philadelphia, but they are fetching close to $50 apiece on eBay.
