New Coins

The US Mint is releasing new coins starting this year.

Over the next 10 years, 50 new quarters will be released,
one design for each state. Delaware and Pennsylvania are out
now, Georgia, Connecticut, and New Jersey will come later this


The Mint is also releasing a new dollar coin to replace the
Susan B Anthony Dollar next year. They haven't decided on the 
design yet, but the finalists are displayed on their site. The 
coin will be gold colored.


The US Treasury also reports that the $2 bill was printed for
the first time in over ten years in 1996- they printed 51 million
of them in 1996 and 102 million of them in 1997.
