U.S. Mint offers sneak peek of 2008 dollar coins

Is it me or does President Van Buren look like a goofy professor?

From USA Today:

On Thursday, the U.S. Mint offers the first glimpse of four presidential $1 coins it plans to issue in 2008. The coins bear the images of the fifth through the eighth U.S. presidents.

Beginning Feb. 14, the Mint will issue a new dollar every three months. James Monroe will be first, followed by John Quincy Adams on May 15, Andrew Jackson on Aug. 14 and Martin Van Buren on Nov. 13.

These Presidential coins just get sillier and sillier- Jackson looks retarded, Monroe looks like a member of that northern Thai tribe which elongates its necks with rings, Adams looks like the cript-keeper and we've already 'coined' the term Martin Van Bozo.

Frankly, as an American I find it embarrassing!
