So, start cracking crack eggs! Break open your rolls and run them through a bank that has a customer sorter. Cracking 1K a month is easy, just don't try to burn the rolls or soak them - bang them against each other in the middle.

And don't forget to recycle the paper - we are all about recycling things - metal, paper or plastic.

Ending at Reagan is too soon! We need to add the Presidents of the Continental Congress; Jeff Davis (CSA); and David Burnet, Sam Houston, Mirabeau Lamar and Anson Jones (Texas). Then the Emperor Powhatan and all the Native American leaders, including the Hawaiian Royalty. Else we are not PC and inclusive! Wake up NPR - we need more coins!

That isn't enough backup for an audit for a commercial account Actually for some business clients, going to the bank is a thing of the past thanks to check scanners. Unfortunately they don't work for coin deposits

If the last presidents left to mint were democrats instead of republicans, I am sure Jackie Speier would have a different view on ending the program There are still a few living presidents so the program could be extended if one of them dies before 2016. Carter is 86 and George H Bush is 87. If they die before 2016, I hope the mint would continue the program to do coins for them as well.

I would also like to see the first lady dollar coins go into circulation. We need to be PC and mint women as well as men.

Interesting release schedule

I went to wikipedia to look up the schedule:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preside...1_Coin_Program

Interesting. Looks like if Carter dies before Reagans coin is minted his will be minted first.

A few questions
1. What if you already have/open a business account and deposit the coins into that account..do you think they are less likely to be "suspicious" about the coin deposits?
2.So i know you're limited to $1000 worth of coins per 10 days, what if say your wifes name is on the credit card and she orders the coins to say a private mail box or business address,as well as me ordering the coins to my home address or will they limit it to the actual credit card number used?

I would love a Kamehameha coin. Coins in Hawaii are apparently quite rare, everyone I gave one to last week seemed either perplexed or excited to see one.

Yep, hands down the least popular. That explains why Reagan didn't even make the list of potential names when they changed the name of Washington's National Airport to the Jimmy Carter National Airport.
(But seriously, thanks for the laugh though )

Works for me - just why do we have a fake woman NA on the NA dollar anyway when we had a real NA First Lady, Edith Bolling Galt Wilson, who would have been perfect for the coin? The mint needs to make amends and go back and make dollars for all the first ladies. Heck, why not petition NPR to start a campaign for a $2 coin series for them?

This poll cites Reagan as 9th most popular
