They are issuing 4 new nickels over 2004-2005 commemorating the Louisana Purchase and Lewis & Clark's journey. Two were issued in 2004. One had the "Peace Medal" design (the handshake) and the second had a Keel Boat. The next two are the ones on this article. I didn't know they were changing the image of Jefferson though.

Not sure i like it yet. I'd like to see all the coins redesigned, but going back to allegorical images of Liberty as was the case in the 1800's thru early 1900's.

From your keyboard to God's eyes...

(By the way if the trend continues, will the next Lady Liberty be running or flying? Once She got over being just a head, she went from a seated figure in 1837 to standing in 1907 to walking in 1916)...

I love the Liberty designs, but if they are going to come out with a new design, put Teddy Roosevelt on the front with a row of battleships on the back. :)
