â€œThe United States Mint has struck more than 300 million George Washington Presidential $1 Coins. We have recently learned that an unspecified quantity of these coins inadvertently left the United States Mint at Philadelphia without edge-lettering on them. It is unknown how many of these coins without inscriptions on the edge have been placed into circulation.
The United States Mint understands the importance of the inscriptions â€œIn God We Trustâ€ and â€œE Pluribus Unum,â€ as well as the mint mark and year on U.S. coinage. We take this matter seriously. We also consider quality control a high priority. The agency is looking into the matter to determine a possible cause in the manufacturing process.â€
If you collect coins, you might want to check any $1 Presidential Coins that you get. One of the screwed-up ones might be worth a lot more then one dollar. If the is no â€œIn God We Trustâ€ or â€œE Pluribus Unumâ€ on the edgeâ€¦keep it!
