Commemorative coin honoring Marilyn Monroe centennial in 2026
Marilyn Monroe, the greatest American movie actress, was born on June 1, 1926 which means that 2026 will be the centennial of her birth.
We should ask the Treasury Department to mint a commemorative coin.
Such a coin would be a "best seller" as opposed to the commemoratives honoring obscure persons or events.
Marilyn sings a numismatic song "One Silver Dollar" in the 1954 film "River of No Return":
Marilyn sings "One Silver Dollar" (Written by Ken Darby and Lionel Newman)
One silver dollar
Bright silver dollar
Changing hands, changing hands
Love is a shining dollar
Bright as a church bell's chime
Gambled and spent and wasted
