This is wonderful. Anyone who is seriously opposed to this new coin program probably doesn't remember the decades of stagnation when there were few if any new designs of U.S. coins in circulation except for the popular mid-1970s Bicentennial program. Sure, some designs in the 50 States Quarters Program may not have been spectacular, but look how that decade-long program of circulating commemoratives sparked a virtual Renaissance of interest in coin collecting in this country. You don't have to collect the planned National Parks coins, but you should embrace this new coinage program because it will be good for the hobby.
