New Nickels

coin_louisiana.gifHave you seen this in your pocket or purse yet? They started showing up in my change last week. CNN informs: it’s a representation of the “Jefferson Peace Medal. This was a ceremonial medallion presented to Native American chiefs during treaty signings and other big pow-wows.”

Not that we showered peace upon the native peoples … but that’s a different post for a different time.

And the change doesn’t end there … we’re changing the front and back for 2005.
