"By Industry We Hope To Prosper....1838"

This little gold coin with my favourite icon seemed befitting, especially in this downward economy our world has been facing for the last few years.  The back of the coin reads "Wisdom and Pleasure Combined".  As I watch the nightly news and hear about how nothing is made in the good ole' USA anymore, perhaps we should all keep one of these coins in our pockets to remind us that industry is what made this country the greatest nation.  Industry is also what will get us out of this mess.  So when you are out doing your holiday shopping, please remember to look at the label to see where it was made.  If you see Made in the USA.....BUY IT!  You may have just created another American job....
