New Presidential Dollar Coin To Have Edge Incused Lettering

with one comment

We haven’t seen this on a U.S. coin in a very long time the mint is going to use incused lettering on the edge of the coin.

Description: The new Presidential $1 coins will feature edge-incused inscriptions of the year of minting or issuance, “E Pluribus Unum,” “In God We Trust” and the mint mark. Edge-incused inscription positions vary with each coin.
