You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

If I'm understanding the descriptions correctly, these may be the first scyphate coins ever issued in the US. (Is that true?)

Not at all. It's a faithful reproduction of the Hollywood set where the moon landing was filmed.

US dollar coins are still made for circulation but they haven't been popular for decades and they're almost never seen. Some of them have some amazing features — is this the first time the Cherokee language has appeared on a coin? And note also that the design "breaks the frame," with the hand actually writing the inscription around the margin. I wonder if that has been done in coins before? (Pretty sure it hasn't in US coins.)

Hey, no fat shaming, this has been done from an unflattering angle.
