In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Jan 4, 2013

A few days ago, I got an email from a treasure hunter who asked me to boycott the new dollar coins. 

Well, for starters, there aren't any new dollar coins. 

Turns out this was one of those email chain letters that just keep going and going.  Worse, it was designed to mislead people, and make them mad.

I tell the story in this show.

Overall great piece of internet rumors and the dollar coin not having "In God we Trust" on it. However one point of correction. Although the US Mint did stop making dollar coins in circulation quantities, they do still mint a few million of each type each year for proof and mint sets, plus you can order bags and rolls of them from usmint.gov. One other thing that might be a interest is that prior to the civil war, no US coins had, "In God We Trust" on them.
