Tour promotes new dollar coin (Record Journal, CT)

MERIDEN - George Washington is getting the rock star treatment, thanks to the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

The Father of Our Country - or at least a reasonable facsimile thereof - is the subject of the first presidential dollar coin, which will be issued Feb. 15.

In order to promote the new coins, the department is going on a 10-city, two-week tour, hoping to create a buzz with collectors and consumers. The tour stopped at Westfield Meriden Tuesday.
