New U.S. Dollar Hides “In God We Trust”

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at this. The new U.S. dollar coins will have a new look. Instead of saying “In God We Trust” on the face of the coin, it has been moved to the edge of the coin. Anyone want to make bets on when it is removed permanently? Here is a newsflash: AMERICA NEEDS GOD!

WASHINGTON – “In God We Trust,” the official national motto since 1956 and a familiar sight on U.S. coins and currency, will be hard to find on the new presidential dollar coins scheduled for release to the public Feb. 15, 2007.

The new gold-colored dollar pieces, featuring images of U.S. presidents, will move the inscription from the face of the coin to the thin edge, along with the year and the previous national motto, “E Pluribus Unum,” Latin for “Out of Many, One.”

The official reason for the design change? To allow space for larger portraits of the presidents on the face and the Statue of Liberty on the reverse, according to the Mint.

The new coins will be the same size as the 1979 Susan B. Anthony and the 2000-2002 Sacajawea.

For the first time the coin will also say “$1” instead of “One Dollar.”
