Anyone see the 2010 penny's yet?

KEYWORDS:
Might be old news to some; its new to us. Did a search of FR for Penny and turned up nada. Anyone have the scoop on this design? Seems a wee bit "divisive" towards the south.

I like the variety but it does look like play pennies.

I got 2. Not much copper there.

It does have "In God we Trust" on the other side

No

Latin for “Out of many, one”,

“The motto “E Pluribus Unum” was first used on our coinage in 1795, when the reverse of the half-eagle ($5 gold) coin presented the main features of the Great Seal of the United States.
“E Pluribus Unum” is inscribed on the Great Seal’s scroll. The motto was added to certain silver coins in 1798, and soon appeared on all of the coins made out of precious metals (gold and silver).

Not sure why anyone would be offended. I’m full on yankee and thing pennies with the confederate battle flag on them would be cool.

I’ve been grabbing them up myself. They are easier to find than those four Lincoln pennies. Those just disappeared.

It is play money, just like the rest of it. If it was gold, it wouldn't be play money, though.

Sorry all..surfed to some other threads..

Probably just me, but "Lincoln's Shield" just seemed a bit "in your face" as the south get's pummeled under current circumstance.

Sorry, enjoying a couple beers tonight; probably reading way too much into it.. /later

"We can build a collective civic space large enough for all our separate identities, that we can be e pluribus unum -- out of one, many." E Pluribus Unum is the motto on the Great Seal of the United States of America, and is Latin for "out of many, one," not "out of one, many."

-- Vice President Al Gore -- (Source: January 1994. From a Milwaukee speech to the Institute of World Affairs as quoted in Investor's Business Daily, October 25, 1996.)

It looks like it should come from the “Hall of Justice” and should be a token in an arcade.

Lincoln had to decimate the Constitution in order to “save” the union. The real history of the Civil War’s impact is only now being understood.

The face of Lincoln isn’t “divisive” to the South but his shield is? Got it.

Dennis Prager is a better authority than Al Gore.

Like I said, they were new to us. Maybe a mint on the west coast released them and their trickling over my way...

“Seems a wee bit “divisive” towards the south.”

Southerners aren’t “real Americans,” don’t you know? We’re all in-bred hick racist gun-clingers. Unlike the Yankee geniuses who are nose-diving the economy into the ground right now. /rant

Okay, here we go again:
have you seen the one where Lincoln is sitting on the log and reading and has paper or a towel in his pocket?
I mean, it just looks like he is going to the rest room?
Potty humor by old Abe! who would have thunk it?

As a revolutionary society whose currency is in demand over the entire planet, I have always thought (circa Johnson) that we should take advantage of the opportunity to propagandize those who are “governmentally challenged”. ‘E Pluribus Unum” and ‘In God We Trust’ are fine for domestic consumption, but for the sake of the ‘export market’ and today’s domestic market as well, more aggressive sentiments are in order. “Death To Tyrants”, “Live Free Or Die”, “It is Better to Die On Your Feet Than Live On Your Knees”, “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death”, or “With their pens and their voices they stirred themselves and the world”. These are all selections that if printed on our currency would generate prodigious skid marks for China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, India, Peru, Chile, Mexico, South Africa, Yemen, Syria, and in this; the year of Our Lord 2010, I daresay they would generate a pucker factor of 12+ in ‘One Nation Under Obama’. In the immortal words of Captain Jean Luc Picard, “Make It So”. I’m just sayin’.
