New $1 Coin - Franklin Pierce

The US Mint is releasing a Franklin Pierce $1 coin today to commemorate the USA's 14th president. It is the 2nd coin released in the presidential series of $1 coins.
The official "release party" will be held at the Franklin Mansion in Concord, today May 20th. Interestingly, the US Mint will be "giving out" the coins to children and selling them for $1 to adults.
On a side note - our country is in financial ruin and the US mint is giving out dollar coins. I guess they figure that they could always make more money!
