New Buffalo Nickel Leaves Little to the Imagination
still features Thomas Jefferson's portrait, but it's updated and bigger, with "Liberty" to the right in his handwriting. The other side shows the bison in place of Jefferson's Monticello.
And what a bison! Someone I work with noticed she had one of the new nickels today and while the head of the coin is a handsome portrait of Thomas Jefferson, the bison on the tail, is showing a little more than just tail. Check it out.
Heh, clearly this bison has more in common with Dick Cheney than an emasculated Ken doll. I'm pleased, and a little surprised, that in this era of political correctness, the US Mint chose to exercise a little anatomical correctness.
