After work, I decided to stop at a local coffee shop for a beverage. As I ordered my libation and noticed a $2 bill in the tip jar. The numismatist in me became excited. I reached in to take the note and replaced it with three William Henry Harrison dollars.
The barista watched carefully and noticed the gold-colored coins. She looked at me and asked why I was taking her money and leaving tokens. I pulled one out of the jar and showed her that it was a $1 coin. Apparently, it was the first time she had seen the dollar coin.
If nothing else, the Presidential Dollar Program helped educate one high school student today!
