New pennies? Come on! They look nice, but do you people realize how difficult you make teaching money every time you add an updated style?
The new nickels have been confusing, and don't even get me started on state quarters. (What coin has a tree? Well, kids, if it has an eagle or ANYTHING ELSE YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE, go ahead and assume it's a quarter.)
It may seem simple for adults to figure out, but for little kids, you're just adding more and more that they have to be able to recognize and distinguish, and learning to count money is already hard for most of our kids!
Come on, U.S. Mint, I know you're trying to honor stuff, but help us out here!
