Coin Challenge - Washington
We introduced the Coin Challenge - Washington Monument on the blog on October 18. Can you look at the picture below and
remember which coin contains the Washington Monument?
What is the coin? Is it silver, gold or another metal? Did the coin circulate or is it a commemorative
coin? 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.)
Though recently damaged in an earthquake, this image of the Washington Monument was on a coin minted a
couple of years prior to the monument's restoration project
The Washinton Monument's restoration project spanned several years and ended with a celebration in
the year 2000
Thus, the coin is a modern commemorative coin
Being minted several years prior to 2000, the coin is not a commemorative state quarter
We didn't want to make this one too easy, so that's it for the hints!
