On June 28th, an amendment passed that may change the design of the new Presidential Dollar coins. The words “In God We Trust” may no longer appear on the edge of the coins.
Rep. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) explained that the amendment will correct an unintentional error made by Congress. “At no point did anyone explain that [In God We Trust] would not be on the face of the coin,” Wicker stated. “The current coin has the words etched on the rim of the coin, obscuring them from view.”
