On Presidents' Day, it's good to remember the many issues featuring US Presidents. There are the everyday coins, such as the Lincoln cent, Jefferson nickel, FDR dime, Washington quarter, JFK half dollar. There's the entire series of Presidential dollar coins that was recently completed. There are many commems, classic and modern.
The Sacagawea dollar coins represent one of the most beautiful modern coins. Glenna Goodacre's artists depiction of Sacagawea, a young Native American Shoshone with infant child Jean Baptiste has excellent eye appeal. The reverse an eagle soars majestically into the field of the coin. These original issue coins are beautiful unlike the Presidential and subsequent Native American coins which have a $1 on the reverse, Sacagawea (2000-2008) have One Dollar on them. Unfortunately, the mint was forced to do this most likely, since many people confused the original Sacagawea dollar coin for a different denomination. I like the denomination written on the coin as opposed to a number. I probably will start a collection of the original issues (2000-2008) but not the subsequent ones.
