Hot on the heels of the ending of the State Quarters redesign program, the mint unveiled two new designs for reverse side of the Jefferson five-cent piece. The obverse will remain the same, according to the CNN article.
The “Louisiana Purchase/Peace Medal” design will be released in the spring of 2004 and the “Lewis & Clark Keelboat” will arrive in the fall. More information can be found on the US Mint website.
