    I just skimmed the photos of the coins and did not read any of it, but they look nice. They would probably look good in platinum too.

    Only thing is: I don't see much difference in the Life and Happiness designs.

    It's kinda cool but I'd rather see each amendment get it's own coin. Maybe that's next.

    @kiyote.... Yes, I would like to see that as well... I am sure it is in the planning stage down the road. Cheers, RickO

    I'm trying to link to that site. Not having any luck. I'm almost glad. I'm afraid that what I might see will wreck my Saturday afternoon. BTW, I got the old '76 Silverado 4x4 to crank, fire- up, and run. Hot wired it. Now put the front tires back on, some gas, and away we go! Driving lessons on the ranch for 5 year old mini-Hydrants, Nicole and Brooke. There's more to life than coins. But not much!

    That wish will eventually be granted.

    The mint will churn out endless new products, for the rest of our lives and far into the future, in an increasingly vast array of designs, metals, sizes, coin finish and packaging options, and other fancy features and gimmicks.

    Nothing against this issue or subject matter in particular, but i just cannot keep up with it all. Uncle!

    Wait.. there's 27 amendments?! I'll be dead before then. Plus I'm not sure how the 24th amendment addressing poll taxes can be explained on a coin.

    It's interesting that the two s letters in Happiness look different. It looks like "Happinefs", a bit like the f in Life.

    I'm also getting used to togas on the American frontier. Initially, Liberty in a toga in front of a landscape makes me think of Italy or Greece.

    It's also interesting the eagle isn't holding any arrows like on other recent coins. I want to find out when the eagle lost its arrows now.

    The design of 18th Amendment coin should be interesting!

    It would be nice if they strike the same designs in fractional plats or silver for us less wealthy collectors.
