US Mint sends out coins missing main inscriptions!

US Mint has been churning out One Dollar coins without some of the customary stuff. They are missing the "in God We Trust" and some other stuff… Hmm is this a democractic or liberal controversy? 😉

An unknown number of new U.S. $1 coins bearing the image of George Washington are missing the words "In God We Trust" and other lettering along the edges, the U.S. Mint said on Wednesday.

The Mint released more than 300 million gold-colored, George Washington $1 coins last month, but it recently discovered a problem. The coins, made by the Philadelphia Mint, were supposed to have the inscriptions "In God We Trust," "E Pluribus Unum," the date and the mint mark around the edge.

It is unclear how the mistake occurred or how many of the coins are in circulation, according to the Mint statement. The Mint said it would make necessary technical adjustments in the manufacturing to eliminate the defect.

"The United States Mint understands the importance of the inscriptions ‘In God We Trust’ and ‘E Pluribus Unum’ as well as the mint mark and year on U.S. coinage. We take this matter seriously," the statement said.
