We are all used to seeing good old honest Abe on our money.  His profile is on the penny and the five dollar bill.  Here is his next entry on our currency.  The 2010 Abraham Lincoln Presidential $1 coin will enter circulation today November 18.  The United States Mint invites the public to a launch ceremony on November 19, the 147th anniversary of the delivery of his famous Gettysburg Address.  The event will be held at President Lincoln’s Cottage on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, D.C.  The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. Eastern Time. This will be the 16TH Presidential dollar to be released.
