For May's Coin of the Month, Flip the Mint Seal introduces us to the $5 gold coin that commemorates the founding and proud history of the United States Army. Celebrate both veterans and currently-serving members through the 2011 U.S. Army commemorative gold coin, the May Coin of the Month.
The latest issue of Making Cents covers new coins, a new game, and a brand new word find puzzle.
On Memorial Day
When your students consider Memorial Day this year, don't forget the coins that honor troops and veterans. You'll find links to information about these coins collected on a special page called "Exploring American Veterans."
In addition to links to coins, there are links to related lesson plans, Teacher Features, and even a WebQuest, all of which will help your classes appreciate the work of the Armed Forces in securing our safety and liberty.
