    Coin Roll Hunting

    Couple cool coins

    I came back home for the weekend, and did a little coin roll hunting.
    Found 4 40%s. Got a box of dimes, pulled 4 silver.
    But anyway...one of the 40%s was a 1970S. My second one! I love pulling those. And the other cool coin was a colored Susan B Anthony.
    Here are some picks. Happy hunting.

    Neat bit of history on the SBA. Note the date. 18 years after the last mintage. Do you know why?


    [I know why. I'm just curious if others know why]

    Dollar coins were going to be restored, but dies for the new design were not ready, so they made SBAs.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Partly correct. Mentioning why they would be minted, when the legislation for the Sac dollar had already been approved is the big question. Yes, the dies were not ready for Sac so SBA was dusted off. But a year early and after a hiatus of 18 years? Why couldn't it wait 1 more?

    A very powerful lobby had pushed congress to mint the SBA in 1999. Apparently there was an insufficient supply of dollar coins for the Vending Machine Lobby. They are solely responsible for pushing the timetable up a year. Now think back to 1999... How many vending machines can you recall that used dollar coins?

    I was only 1 year old at that time.
