But in spite of that, he’s still getting a dollar coin minted in his honour:

The 15th coin in the presidential $1 coin program honors President James Buchanan. It features an image of the president with the inscriptions “James Buchanan”, “In God We Trust”, “15th President” and “1857-1861.”

The reverse side of the coin shows the Statue of Liberty. The ceremonial launch and coin exchange will take place at Wheatland, the former president’s home.

About the only thing that might make this a good idea is if the value is pegged to the pre-Civil War dollar.

  1. I know it may be a bit controversial, but it might be a bit appropriate that the 15th President is represented by the 15th Presidential coin, since they seem to be going in order…

  2. Oh, sure. Go ahead and try to use your logic to decipher the message. It’s bound to be the next sign of the coming apocalypse! It’s in Revelations, for sure!
