A Godless John Adams? It seems the U.S. Mint is working out a few quality control issues with the new Presidential dollar coins (my original story).
The Presidential Dollar coins, launched at the first of this year, are causing quite a stir. The dollar design is different than our familiar coins, with some stamping on the edge, rather than the front or back surface.
One of the edge stamps includes the inscription “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and it is missing from a large number of coins already minted. These are destined to become highly sought after by
atheists coin collectors.

New dollar coins featuring John Adams are missing edge inscriptions including “In God We Trust,” according to the Professional Coin Grading Service, a rare coin authentication company based in Newport Beach, Calif.
