Mister Cannot Spare the Dime 

WFSB Reagan supporters want his image on money
Getting their hero's face on the dime may be easier than other goals, such as seeing it etched on Mount Rushmore, but that idea still will be resisted by Democrats defending their own icon, FDR.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., a speechwriter in the Reagan White House, plans to introduce a bill to put Reagan on the $20 bill, replacing another venerable Democrat, Andrew Jackson.

That would join a previous proposal, by Rep. Mark Souder, R-Ind., to provide for dimes bearing the likeness of Reagan. The office of Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he would pursue an idea he has pushed for several years, placing Reagan on the $10 bill now bearing the visage of Hamilton, the first Treasury secretary.

Chris Butler of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project, which has the goal of seeing a Reagan commemoration in every American county, said its top legislative priority is the $10 bill. He noted that money can be changed administratively without congressional action, and suggested that Reagan dimes could join, rather than replace, FDR dimes.
It doesn't really matter to me. The coin of the realm is already tainted with a pointless God reference anyway. Who cares whose picture is on the front. But tradition dictates that we wait some several years before snubbing the iconoclasts of the world by creating a graven image of a mortal being.

At any rate, the right may yet see one of their heroes on the ten-spot...

...long before they see their other hero on the dinar...
