Today, up in Munising, the new quarter that celebrates the Upper Peninsula's Pictured Rocks National Seashore is being "launched". According to, the U.S. Mint is holding a special ceremony with a coin pour (?) and an exchange of $10 coin rolls. Hopefully they drop some in the sand. I'll be up there with a metal detector to look, this summer. (If you've never been up there - go.)

Which brings up the question - who scheduled this ceremony for the middle of winter? Unless the reps from the mint roll up on snowmobiles and then go ice fishing. That would rock.

We'll see. They never check with me about this stuff. Stupid U.S. Mint.
