Lol. Adams wasn't very endearing either.

In fact, when any leader tries to be endearing, I take fast note.

Few, if any, humans are perfect.

That being said, I don't care for staring at faces while trading notes myself... unless they're good looking. Maybe people would fork over their cash less if there were pictures of bohemian super models on the front.

Augh, money.

Adams may not have been endearing....but that was wholly because he wasn't in on the cronyism of the day. That, and he was literally insufferable. I have no idea how he managed to get elected. One of the greatest minds to ever being recorded to have existed, and he was such a jerk that no one could stand him.

That's what happens when you are always right amongst a group of assholes that are typically wrong.

That is exactly why I love the man so much.

I would have like to have kept Jackson, or found a more contemporary person. I thought Emila Earhart would have been a better choice. I believe it was a politically motivated choice as to who to put on the $20.00. Obama admin sticking it in the eye of the American public AGAIN. As everyone knows a Jackson in common tongue means a $20.00 bill. Now we are going to have a Tubby for a $20.00 bill.

They can stick it to my eye if it's Scarlett Johansson.

If we really wanted to commemorate people, money just seems like an odd way to do it... especially through the Federal Reserve.

They have made all kinds of 'collectable' dollar coins. Those are nothing more then scams imo and would hate to see more of our historical figures likenesses used for it.


Never forget the Liberian George Washington Talking Dollar Coin.
Yours for only $19.95.

You're right, there are a lot of scams out there in regards to "collectibles".

To each their own I guess...I don't have a large collection of coins, rather tiny actually...like...less than a handful, but I appreciate them nonetheless. And they still spend. It's a nice day when you work a register and someone uses an unusual coin or what have you. Kind of like tipping with a two dollar bill. Some of us just geek out on such things, no harm done.

It is kind sad when some folks don't recognize valid currency though....there was a kerfuffle a while back of someone not recognizing the two dollar bill as valid and it caused a wealth of embarrassment for the customer and the recipient.

Well if anything, if you want to honor this man's Presidency you should be trying to get him removed from the bill anyways. The ironic part has always been that the $20 bill is the most used bill in circulation, probably around the world. It is also part of a central banking currency that is governed by bankers MORE corrupt than the ones he battled in the 1820's.

I love this description of Jackson:

Andrew Jackson shuts down Second Bank of the U.S.


Jackson, known as obstinate and brutish but a man of the common people, called for an investigation into the bank’s policies and political agenda as soon as he settled in to the White House in March 1829. To Jackson, the bank symbolized how a privileged class of businessmen oppressed the will of the common people of America. He made clear that he planned to challenge the constitutionality of the bank, much to the horror of its supporters. In response, the director of the bank, Nicholas Biddle, flexed his own political power, turning to members of Congress, including the powerful Kentucky Senator Henry Clay and leading businessmen sympathetic to the bank, to fight Jackson.


It's almost like politics of yesteryear are mimicking politics of today.

Well finding odd coins is different, I by no means meant to diminish any actual collectable coin. In fact if you look at my thread history I have one of my few authored threads about a coin my old man has.

And ya I have had my run ins with people who don't know a two dollar bill, my gma used to send me them all the time and would get funny looks spending them.

The new Jackson Democrats are....?

You are right.

Honestly, had he not been such an asshole to the natives, I'd likely have a fonder opinion of him. I live in what was once Comanche country. They were pretty violent, and hard on the folks in the area at the time. Jackson didn't beat them into submission. It was just good old humanity that did it: we negotiated peace with them (IIRC, it was the Germans that made that happen here in Texas, shortly after establishing New Braunfels)

Yea. It doesn't help my opinion of him either with how he treated the natives.

ATS is hilarious. Harriet Tubman is going to be on the front of the $20 and Andrew Jackson is going to be ON THE BACK. Slave on one side, slave owner on the other...
