As we begin 2010, I read about the US mint releasing more of its 2001 Sacagewea dollars. I assumed it was simple dyslexia. But no, the mint has still not been able to place all of the 2001 coins into circulation. The coins are being offered under the mint’s "circulating $1 coin direct ship program." I hate to sound like a broken record, but the problem is that Americans do not like dollar coins. And yet the mint continues to make more. The 2001’s might be an especially tough sell, since there is likely to be more interest in the presidential dollars or the newer native American series.
