Coin Challenge - Bird
Through the years coins from the US Mint have contained many different birds, not just eagles. Which coin shows
this long-tailed bird?
What is the coin? Is it silver, gold or another metal? Did the coin circulate or is it a commemorative
coin? Is it both? What is the denomination - a penny, nickel, dime, quarter, half dollar, dollar or another coin
from early coinage? Is the design from the obverse or reverse of the coin? (Scroll down for hints.)
- It's a commemorative coin.
- The coin could be found in pocket change (but, when?).
Hints from the atlcoin commentary blog on August 3:
- This bird is hunted for sport and for food
- The coin’s design also includes two wheat ears
Those are strong hints! Do you recognize the coin?
