Autodesk makes software for people who make things. If you've ever driven a high-performance car, admired a towering skyscraper, used a smartphone, or watched a great film, chances are you've experienced what millions of Autodesk customers are doing with our software. Autodesk gives you the power to make anything. That's normally what I blog about; however, as a follow up to my Money: Faces on US Currency posting, Autodesk customer, Curt Moreno, posed a question: "Which coins feature someone other than a United States President?" I felt compelled to respond. Since it is Friday, and I avoid technical posts on Fridays, here goes:
|Denomination||Face on Coin||Image (source: Wikipedia)|
|President Abraham Lincoln|
|President Thomas Jefferson|
|President Franklin D. Roosevelt|
|President George Washington|
|President John F. Kennedy|
|First Woman to Vote, Susan B. Anthony|
There are actually numerous $1 coins commemorative of US Presidents (e.g., Eisenhower) — see the Wikipedia page. The dollar coins were/are in circulation for varying amounts of time:
The coins I have listed are the commonly used coins. So in terms of statesmen who are both bills and coins, the list would include: Abraham Lincoln (penny and $5 bill), Thomas Jefferson (nickel and $2 bill), and George Washington (quarter, $1 coin, and $1 bill).
Unearthing common but uncommonly known facts is alive in the lab.
