Canadians call our dollar coin the 'loonie"

Because there is an image of a loon, on one side of the coin.

Any guesses what the US dollar coin will be called, since the image on the coin will change?

U.S Mint takes another run at dollar coin

WASHINGTON -- Can George Washington and Thomas Jefferson succeed where Susan B. Anthony and Sacajawea failed? The U.S. Mint is hoping America's presidents will win acceptance, finally, for the maligned U.S. dollar coin.

The public will get the chance to decide starting in February when the first of the new coins, bearing the image of the first president, is introduced.

George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison are scheduled to grace the coin in 2007, with a different president appearing every three months.

The series will honour four different presidents a year, in the order they served in office. Each president will appear on only one coin, except for Grover Cleveland, who will be on two because he was the only president to serve non-consecutive terms. To be depicted on a coin, a president must have been dead for at least two years.

and wraps to tails.

my guess since there is four a year each one will get its own moniker. can't wait until the presidents after Ike appear.

it is a great money maker for the money makers, many households will collect them like the 50 state quarters, etc. they will make $12.50 on the quarters, $50 on the dollars. voluntary savings plan for the country.
