This seems to me to be another attempt to crossover two hobbies, autograph
collecting and coin collecting, just like they have tried to do before with
coins and stamps and coins and baseball cards (remember the 1997 Jackie
Robinson set?)

But Jessica Lynch?


That what it seems to be to me as well, Matter of fact I'll go a step further
and bet that within the next 5 - 10 years they may make a strong effort to
change the commorative coin law that states only deceased people can be put on
commemorative coinage, If they change it to living they could have the very
person signing the coin that appears on the coin.

I think that's where this all my be headed.
But maybe i'm wrong.

If the mint is now allowing living people on coins then they should just finish up the presidential coin set.
