A nickel for your thoughts

I was running through my Blogline subscriptions this morning and came across a post on Speak Up about the design of the new 2005 nickels.

The new 2005 nickel

I have to admit, I like them a lot. So much in fact that I carry a nickel around with me that I don’t spend and I have one at home on my desk taped above my pc. Why?

Simplicity. Good design. A reminder.

The original 1938 design is simple but not, in my opinion, as stylish.

This is the first time in a long time that I have looked forward to seeing what designs the US Mint will come up with next. The 50 State Quarters program, released in 1999, was probably that last one that held my interest.

Postage stamps, now there is a design topic.
