Recommended Posts

Son of a bitch, I just got done completing my 50 states coin collection not too long ago. Now I have to keep up with this thing.

Ellis Island/Statue of Liberty being listed under New Jersey really, really chaps my ass. :cursing:

I'm kind of surprised at some of these. I would've expected the Dells for Wisconsin since going there is a right of passage for a lot of Upper Midwesterners (the Apostle Islands are still a huge upgrade over that stupid cow though!) And how could New York go with anything but Niagara Falls? Not to mention some others (i.e. South Dakota) that are gonna be redundant.

I feel you, but it's freakin' Jersey... the only other thing they might have been able to contribute to this series is the shore, and anything that could save us from 50 years of lame jokes like "where's the fist-pumping guidos?" is good with me.

Why do American protectorates get in on this?

Why not? They all use the dollar...they deserve the love too.

Yeah, bring out the tired, lame New Jersey Jokes. New Jersey could do the shore, as there are tons of historical beaches and lighthouses, but they could also choose Revolutionary War or other historic sites, or even the Princeton Campus. For every hackneyed Jersey post there's something equally nasty about that poster's state, I assure you.

Guess when I think "America the Beautiful" I think locations within the 50 states. Just me.

But then again I'm not making the calls at the mint.

I'm still trying to get the territory quarters, let alone the parks ones.

Except the "scenic" portion of the Dells doesn't exist anymore, correct? They're just left with kitschy mob-rule Vegas knockoff architecture and amusements.

Not quite... while the town of Wisconsin Dells is pretty much exactly as you described it, the actual dells along the Wisconsin River that it was named for definitely haven't gone anywhere.

In fact, that's where Lake Delton is these days :D

Why you stole those islands from NJ? Those are our islands not New York. They should have always been associated with New Jersey.

That's what bothers me about it.

But even from New Jersey's perspective, why go with landmarks most of the world associates with New York City to represent your state?

This is the most redundant and insipid thing I've ever seen. We all collected the 50 state quarters and now this? :unsure:

And then there's the presidential dollars that most people have completely forgotten about by now.

So perpetuate a falsehood? I'd prefer to see people informed about truths and facts.
