2009 change to the Prez $?



News to me...

Just sitting here watching Home Shopping Network (HSN) and the Coin Collecting hour. Yes, I know it is 3:30 AM CST but what else is a coin-aholic to do? At least I haven't purchased anything yet, even though the first 9 years of uncirculated state quarters (P, D and gold plated) for $199.95 was awfully tempting.

The hosts were discussing (trying to sell) the Prez dollars and it was mentioned that for 2009 forward the words IN GOD WE TRUST were to be moved from the edge of the coins to the obverse. Sounds like a significant mid-series design change to me. Seems as though some activists got to Congress and complained the words were not prominent enough.

Anyone else heard this? The prices of the '07 & '08 coins are bound to shoot up in value if this is true.

Thanks for reading - AGAIN.
