They humanize Thomas Jefferson. He looks as if he is praying. Wow, I guess the commies at the ACLU will be fighting more of our nations symbols.
He looks like a visionary, and the two events commemorated required a visionary to undertake them.
The new design is great.
I don't like it. Keep the old Jefferson portrait. This one looks like a bad Disney caricature.
He sure looks like he had a 'vision', which he did! Your remark may not be far off - the conspiratorialists will insist that he was listening to God and then the ACLU will chomp.
I already have new nickles. The front side is the same and the back is the Louisiana purchase???
i think the new designs are fabulous. bringing back the buffalo nickel, one of the most popular and iconic designs in american coinage. plus a 3/4 profile, which i think is a first. very cool.
