Suffrage Centenary Coin

Did you know the US Mint continues to produce silver dollars? You’ll never see them in picket change though. For something north of a 6000 percent mark-up, a collector can own a silver dollar honoring the American women who scored the right to vote a hundred years ago.

It’s an interesting design: one older woman, a younger person, and someone possibly of color. I’ve never liked the use of the dollar sign–a 2007 innovation for the presidential dollar series. It looks cheap to me.

Don’t forget to vote, and do it early if you have the opportunity. If you feel pressured not to do so, resist. Insist on your right.
