Sometime in the next 24 hours we will be switching European Tribune over to a new layout. This will involve a little downtime and no doubt some teething troubles. Do not adjust your set. - Colman

To amplify Iglesia's comment, The front, traditionally, should have someone's portrait, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA written around the top, above the head, the denomination written around the bottom, ONE TRILLION DOLLARS, the date written in the lower right, as oriented from the face, a mark denoting the mint at which it was struck, the word LIBERTY on one side of the head and the phrase IN GOD WE TRUST on the other side. Dimes put THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA on the back due to space limitations, but that should not be a problem with a trillion dollar coin. A milled edge is optional, not being used with pennies, nickles or the Susan B. Anthony dollar, which was a many sided polygon. The value of the metal content need have no more relation to the value of the coin than did the base metal content of the Susan B. Anthony dollar have to its face value, but it must be platinum per the requirements of the authorizing statute.  

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
