From the May 24 Numismatic News E-Letter

Which coin would you like to see the U.S Mint offer a new restrike of?

Here are some answers sent in from our E-Newsletter readers.

I would like to see a restrike of the Liberty Cap cent.

I’m thinking that the nickel should have a different obverse design, just my thoughts.

I would like to see a restrike of the Barber half dollar.

The Question should be WHY would the U.S. Mint restrike anything? Don’t they have NEW ideas?How many more dead presidents, buffalos/bisons and eagles can we see? And how many quarter sets with poorly designed reverses do we have to endure? U.S. Mint – PLEASE don’t restrike anything anymore!

How about restriking the 1804 silver dollar?

The 1804 Silver Dollar would be very popular, especially if struck as a circulation coin and released through banks at face value.

Personally, a restrike of the original Washington 25 cent piece is acceptable. Also, the W L 25 cent piece is a good idea. Perhaps both in a set would be a great selling point! This may promote the items for future use.

What coin(s) would I like to see the U.S. Mint restrike? None. Nada. Never. There’s too much confusion in the marketplace today with altered coins, counterfeits, a never ending profusion of U.S. Mint offerings [circulation coins, collector coins, bullion, medals, commemoratives, etc.] to name a few problems. The numismatic community does not need more stuff.

I think a BUST or SEATED LIBERTY coin, dime or quarter dollar would be nice.

Morgan $1.

Restrike the Morgan dollar to the size of modern dollars, on current metal and planchets, also with a silver version for collectors, at the small dollar size.

Half cents and large cents.

The dime is the longest unchanged coin still in currency, right?
