I wonder how long the edge lettering will hold up to wear.
Bush will only be on the dollar coin if he dies at least 2 years before the 43rd coin is issued, which should be in 2017. So he has to die by 2015.

As for the edge lettering, they're incuse (sunken in), so they'll last a VERY long time. They're still readable on my 188 year old half dollar.



The full inscription reads "FIFTY CENTS OR HALF A DOLLAR".
