I got to thinking about the state of our commemorative coins.á Well I would like to see a Theodore Roosevelt on a coin.á
áI also think that Ernest Hemingway would be an excellent subject for a coin. He's one of America's best writers, expressing his experiences as an outdoorsman and in combat. If you ever read the Nick Adams stories or Islands In The Stream I'm sure you would agree.
Mark Twain would be a good subject, but he's probably going to be a victim of cancel culture in the near future, so I doubt that coin will see the light of day.
George Wá Patton, one of our best generals, would make a great coin as would Douglas Macarthur. Eisenhower (as President) and Ronald Reagan are also deserving subjects, along with Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr and Babe Ruth.
Here's a curve ball for you: Rush Limbaugh. Why? Not because of his politics but because of the 47 million he raised for trying to find a cure for Leukemia and other non solid tumor cancers. He also donated well over 5 million personally to that cause, Tunnels to Towers and the Marine Corps and Law Enforcement charity.
As far as artists, I would like to see an Andrew Wyeth coin and Winslow Homer.á
Who would you like to see?
