Carter Thwarting Reagan’s Legacy?

The Observer reports that under current statutes, “a president must be dead at least two years before he can be featured on a U.S. bill or coin. The current dollar-coin program requires that the presidents be featured in the order they served. Skipping isn’t allowed. So if Jimmy Carter lives to at least 2014 — he’d be 89 — he won’t make it to a coin in this program since his would be due out in 2016.”

Result: Reagan shutout.
