NEW YORK TIMES SPECULATES ON FURTHER COMMEMORATIVE COINS

Today's New York Times featured a mockup illustration of a cent
featuring Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr.  When asked by
the Times about possible candidates for future commemoratives,
Mint Director Moy blurted out the names of Secretaries of the
Treasury Andrew W. Mellon and his current boss:

"With chief executives of the United States soon appearing on
new dollar coins, starting with Washington on Feb. 15, might
big-name chief executives from corporate America ever merit at
least a penny?

"Edmund C. Moy, director of the United States Mint, says notes
and coins traditionally commemorate “great Americans and great
events,” so it is not impossible. “I think it’s an interesting
thing to think about,” he said, though any decision would be
up to Congress."

[Congress would have to change the existing laws preventing living
persons from appearing on U.S. coins before Moy could suck up to
his boss with a new coin.  -Editor]
