These new (and some old) coins would be great for younger kids, a texture
lesson, and rubbings!

Did you
know that the U.S. mint is issuing a new series of quarters, that will
commemorate each of the 50 states? The Delaware one has already been
issued. The quarters will all show George Washington on the face (our
first "ruler"), but the back will have a picture associated with the
particular state. On the back of the Delaware coin is a picture of Cesar
Rodney on a horse. *That* tradition goes back at least to Marcus Aurelius
on his horse in Rome - a public monument to a ruler.
