A March 7, 2007 press release issued by the US Mint recognized “that an unspecified quantity of [George Washington Dollar] coins inadvertently left the United States Mint at Philadelphia without edge-lettering on them.” Calling it a quality control issue, the Mint said that they are “looking into the matter to determine a possible cause in the manufacturing process.”

Unfortunately, there are media abusers whose knee-jerk reaction was to call this a way to “remove God from our coins.” This could be the furthest from the truth and readers are advised to consider the source before trusting any information these smear merchants may pronounce.
