An interesting coin for sale on ebay...

"In 1998 before Sacagawea was chosen as the theme for the new US Mint small "golden" dollar circulating coin, this Apollo Astronaut prototype designed by Daniel Carr was considered by the US Mint and Congress as a possible design"

And if you follow the URL in the eBay lot description ( http://www.dc-coin.com/ ) there are also silver and bronze versions available.

I bid $370.00 on it, but lost the bid by $5.00 ... I am very disappointed!
