    It’s not horrible.

    They seem to be crossing a river in waist-high water.

    It should look pretty good on the larger canvas.

    Another example of the Mint showing people instead of the place being honored or commemorated. Why are these coins called ATB anyway – these men were brave, no doubt, but beautiful? Hardly! How about that beautiful Saratoga sword and Sgt. Jasper’s flag? I’m still not over tat senorita representing the National Park Service.

    If anyone is looking for a hardcover 2017 Redbook and you have an Ollies near you, they have them for 4.99. There are nice color pics in the book, as well as the normal technical data they’ve always had in there. A new Ollies opened in northern Virginia today in Manassas and I found the Redbooks there for those of you in the area.

    The day will come when Ollies will handle overstock from the US Mint. Just wait and see.

    @jerry

    I agree, I’ve showed the National Park set to a few Boy Scout leaders, all non coin people and they all asked why there was a Mexican dancer on the one coin.

    Hi, Ryan – I would expect most people would ask the same question. Did you ask them what they thought about having a girl on the Boy Scouts coin ? I know the Boy Scouts recently said they would accept girls into their movement, which really doesn’t make any sense – maybe they will change their name to “Human Being Scouts”. The Mint’s desire to be overly PC, like the Boy Scouts coin, the Civil Rights, National Parks, Boys Town (more girls shown than boys – yes I know both girls and boys live there now, but maybe a name change there is in order too. Are the Girl Scouts going to be accepting boys now? And for what purpose was the Lions Club coin issued, other than to show off the Mint’s artistry sculpting lions? This coin collecting hobby (or business) is really starting to make less and less sense every year now.

    I would like to see the Mint issue a coin honoring Mexican dancers and then the reverse could show a redwood tree or waterfalls, or cliff swellings – it would make as much sense as the National Parks coin. There is a thin line between PC and outright stupidity, IMO.
