The new Nickel


The other day I had a story about pennies and nickels costing more than the face value to make. I had no idea they also changed the nickel this year… until I happened to look closely as I emptied the change in my pocket. Both nickels feature Thomas Jefferson, but in the 2006 version, he sports a trendy new doo.

  1. Hah! Jefferson, the man of the people, has a new image with shorter hair but a much more wrinkly face. Hamilton, a man of the treasury and defender of the wealthy, now looks like Russell Crowe. The Republicans control the White House and the Congress. Coincidence?
