Good day! And it IS a fine one, isn't it? But then, I've never seen a day I didn't like. Or a kid, for that matter!
My name's Flip, which suits me well. More than anyone, I flip (and flop) for coins! Maybe that's why the Mint chose my smiling face for the seal you see everywhere on the United States Mint H.I.P. Pocket Change™ Web site. Whenever you see me, relax...you're in a fun and safe place!
Let me tumble out a few personal details...
Favorite coin in my collection: The 1995 Shriver silver dollar. This commemorative coin, which celebrates the Special Olympics World Games, is proof that fun and games are for everyone, everywhere!
How I like to spend my days: Clowning around in the water, playing coin games, and pulling quarters from behind kids' ears.
Personal heroes: Anne Burke and Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Thanks to these two women, the first Special Olympics Games were held at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois, on July 20, 1968.
I coined the phrase: "When in doubt, just flip a coin!"
