"Augusta, ME: Maine Treasurer, Henry E.M. Beck today announced the state's participation in the United States Mint American Innovation $1 Coin Program, a multi-year series to honor innovation and innovators by issuing $1 coins for each of the 50 states. Four new $1 coins with distinctive designs will be released each year from 2019 through 2032. Maine's $1 Innovation Coin is scheduled for release in 2024. According to Treasurer Beck, "Maine has a unique opportunity to showcase a state-specific innovation and/or innovator in the field of science, its impact and connection to the state and we encourage the public to submit ideas," he said."
Naw, I think they are trying to prop up the lucrative but dying hobby of coin collecting. Whether we like it or not the convenience and relative security of electronic financial transfers is taking over. I think that coins are already ancient relics of interest only to a few.
Well, we'll see which way the coins stack up, no wait, awww shucks, I won't be here. I am fated to expire in the next 20 minutes to 20 years. Just when life is getting more interesting than ever, I am ghosted out. Phooey.
Tomorrow's Coins Will Be As Useful As Buttons
