Real Change in DC

Believe it or not this is not about Obama, even if we are talking about "Change coming to DC". Nevertheless it is a great use of Obama's signature word and for sure it will attract attention, considering the fact that Washington DC is packed for Inauguration Day.

I have to say that when I saw this picture I truly laugh out loud: what a great idea!

The "Real Change Exchange Truck" is part of the introduction by the US Mint of the new $ 1 coin, and the idea behind it is that the public can exchange their paper currency for shiny new 2009 Native American $1 Coins.

The coin is presented as part of the opening ceremonies of the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) festival, "Out of Many: A Multicultural Festival of Music, Dance and Story." This festival is one of the several activities scheduled by the Smithsonian to celebrate the 2009 Presidential Inauguration (so you may say that this is about Obama after all!)

Nevertheless, kudos to whoever had the idea!
