Last month, the United States Mint submitted a 400-page report to Congress that could make the coin identification circuitry of our metal detectors obsolete.
This is a photo of a prototype quarter, made from a metal formulation that would give it a yellow or golden hue. (NOTE: The picture and wording are random because the mint didn't want to create "collectible" experimental coins).
Is this the future of our United States coinage system?
