Too funny, after Palin tried to build this coin issue into a mountain, LMAO, it comes out that we had a Republican Congress, and Bush, in place, when that coin was approved in 05!.

The United States is honoring our Nation's Presidents by issuing $1 circulating coins featuring their images in the order that they served. The United States Mint issues four Presidential $1 Coins per year, with Presidents Harrison, Tyler, Polk, and Taylor being honored in 2009. Each coin has a common reverse design featuring a striking rendition of the Statue of Liberty. These coins feature larger, more dramatic artwork, as well as edge-incused inscriptions of the year of minting or issuance, "E Pluribus Unum" and the mint mark. "In God We Trust" will appear on the face of the coin starting in 2009. Although the size, weight and metal composition of the new Presidential $1 Coin are identical to that of the Sacagawea Golden Dollar, there are several unique features that make this coin distinctive

Edge-Incused Inscriptions
The edge-incused inscriptions found on the eight 2007 and 2008 Presidential $1 Coins (George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren) include the year of minting or issuance (2007 or 2008), E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST and the mint mark (P, D or S).
Beginning in 2009 with the William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coin, the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST will move to the coin's obverse (heads side), with the year of minting or issuance, E PLURIBUS UNUM and the mint mark remaining as edge lettering.
However, there are two processes for producing the edge-incused lettering and each produces a different result. .
Circulating and "Uncirculated" Quality Coin Edge-Incused Lettering Process
Due to the minting process used on the circulating and "uncirculated" quality coins, the edge-incused inscription positions will vary with each coin.
The Presidential $1 Coins are inscribed on the edge without regard to their "heads" or "tails" orientation. In addition, the location of the inscriptions around the circumference of the coin with relation to the obverse and reverse designs will vary as well. This is because the United States Mint incuses these inscriptions on the edge of each coin at the second step of a two-step coining process.
In the first step, the blanks are fed into a coining machine which strikes the obverse and reverse designs onto the coins, and dispenses the coins into a large bin. In the second step, the bin is transported to the edge-incusing machine, into which the coins are fed at random, without regard to their "heads" or "tails" orientation.
Therefore, statistically, approximately one-half of the coins produced will have edge-lettering oriented toward the "heads" side (obverse), and approximately one-half of the coins will have the edge-incused inscriptions oriented toward the "tails" side (reverse).
Proof Coin Edge-Incused Lettering Process
The minting process used to manufacture the Presidential $1 Proof Coins is a one-step coining process that allows the edge lettering to appear in a consistent location on every proof coin. Using a three-piece collar, the edge lettering on the proof coins is incused in the edge of the coin at the same time that the obverse and reverse design are being struck onto the blank planchet.
This method produces edge-incused lettering that will always appear right side up when the coin is showing its "heads" side. Furthermore, the location of the lettering will always be in the same location on the circumference of the coin with relation to the obverse and reverse designs. In addition, the proof coins will each bear a faint demarcation line where the three segments that make up the edge lettering collar are joined.

They did stand at the end, however.
She then got a standing ovation from most of the crowd, but a few had begun to leave before she even finished and within seconds of her concluding, scores more got up and put on their jackets as they walked away.
In addition to the suggestion that government officials would consider hastening the death of the infirm or handicapped, she began her remarks with a puzzling commentary on the design of newly minted dollar coins.
Noting that there had been a lot of “change” of late, Palin recalled a recent conversation with a friend about how the phrase “In God We Trust” had been moved to the edge of the new coins.
“Who calls a shot like that?” she demanded. “Who makes a decision like that?”
She added: “It’s a disturbing trend.”
The decision to put "IN GOD WE TRUST" on the edges of presidential dollar coins has received little attention from the press, but was reversed in 2007, before President Barack Obama took office. Sens. Sam Brownback (R-KS) and Robert Byrd (D-WV) sponsored legislation to move the motto back to the front face of the coins.
"It is important that our national motto, 'In God We Trust,' is prominently displayed on all of our currency," Brownback said. "We should not relegate our heritage to the side."
Some of Palin's recent speeches have also received lackluster reviews. At a recent speech in Hong Kong (which also banned the press) some delegates purportedly "walked out in disgust."

I'm mathematically challenged....how long to I have to wait for the GB-1 and GB-2 coins to come out as I'm now into target shooting?
And will the be worth face value, and accepted as currency when they do come out?

as usual Sarah was right...no pun intended...on the cutting edge with her remarks.
And to think we were only a few thousand Diebold machines away, and just a heartbeat away from her having the launch codes. She might have mistaken them for the lunch codes, and tried to order a hot Pastromi on rye...an.....

Because anyone with any sense at all knows better than to have much trust in the green paper our government has been printing so much of these days.

Yep! If that fiasco didn't prove the gross stupidity of the religious RW in this country, nothing can!

The woman is another fundamentalist NUT! The Republican party is full of them!

Domestic terrorists, who go out and bomb and kill over their religious ideologies, and anger over others who have different values.

An exact description of terrorism.
