The Depleted Uranium was a nice touch, also the gas pump racing the eagle to the moon.

The Barbara Bush coin gave me a shock - for a second I thought it was the evil ghost of Maggie Thatcher reaching out from beyond the grave to form a new Mag/Ron alliance, possible with Bush as the second coming of Reagan.

Harding did not deserve to be slandered like that. Sure, he was ineffective, but at least he admitted that he wasn't fit for office. Putting him on a coin with that man is unfair.

I love the buffaloed press nickel. If I had one of those for every time I thought "surely this will..." I'd be a - well, what would you be called under this new system? A gallonaire?

Maggie Thatcher is still alive.

Obvious and lame. Pity they didn't invest half the effort expended slick production into better writing.

Maggie Thatcher is still alive.

But she's gone mad so there's still a change god is in his heaven.

Patriots, countrymen, help out the American economy...

Remember she got herself electroplated in the 90s, so she's now a metal-plated infernal undead succubus who can shoot electrobolts. And an evil ghost. And mad.

Basically all the bad parts of the Bible, times a thousand.

The cover of the book Bush is reading (on the 100 G coin) is an interesting detail.

In the future, these coins will be worth a Brazilian dollars.

Yeah, I like how they slipped that Baphomet head in there on the "My Pet Goat" book cover too.
