George Washington Dollar CNoins: No Trust

''In God We Trust'' is Missing from this coin

Its been a long time since Americans have embraced a $1 coin, I predict the new George Washington dollar coin will fare no better than Susan B. Anthony. I haven’t really liked a silver dollar since they stopped making them out of silver.
Of course now, our coins aren't worth the metal they are made out of and they cost twice as much as their face value to produce. I suppose we need to keep those government employees busy at the US Mint, so keep on coining.
Besides, they keep seamstresses busy sewing patches into pockets.
The main reason I predict they’ll fail is because true Americans will find them defective — not the pretty gold-ish colored coin itself (I know, it isn’t really made of gold) but, the fact that the United States government is officially minting coinage that no longer says, “IN GOD WE TRUST” on it’s face.
In order to allow for “larger and more dramatic artwork”, the Presidential $1 coins moved the year of minting, the mint mark, the motto from the Great Seal of the United States, and the national motto from the obverse or reverse where they’ve proudly appeared, to an incused inscription on the edge where they are often unnoticed. Congress has reversed its previous specifications and instructed the US Mint to return the motto, “In God We Trust”, to either the front or back of the $1 coins “as soon as is practicable”.
I put my trust in fewer and fewer things these days — the United States government hasn't been on the list since I was a child. In God, however, I know my trust is well placed — and when it becomes time to replace the men and women in government who don’t understand that, I know I have a strong ally in my corner.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that
I found this during my search for something regarding this.

Having read this I believed it was rather informative. I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this short
article together. I once again find myself personally
spending way too much time both reading and leaving comments.
But so what, it was still worthwhile!

Read your comments and it seems like spam bots like to slam your site! I feel your pain on that front.

I actually did read your article, and enjoyed it. You write well. What you mention about 'keeping the U.S. employees at the mint working' was excellent. I also dislike the silliness surrounding our currency.

I am on the other side of the coin with regards to including 'In God We Trust' on the coins, because our nation does not advocate any religion in particular. Thoughts?

Thanks again!
