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.

  1. does the edge incused description always face the same way “up” on all the coins or can it be down? I have several Grant dollar coins and the date and inscription on some faces “up” and on others it faces down? Is this natural for these particular coins?
