    But Jessica Lynch?


    That what it seems to be to me as well, Matter of fact I'll go a step further and bet that within the next 5 - 10 years they may make a strong effort to change the commorative coin law that states only deceased people can be put on
    commemorative coinage, If they change it to living they could have the very person signing the coin that appears on the coin.

    I think that's where this all my be headed.
    But maybe i'm wrong.

    If the mint is now allowing living people on coins then they should just finish up the presidential coin set.
