Say It Ain’t So! The Next Quarter Design Might Have a Bat Design On It!

You know, the longer I live on this planet, the more I realize that life has a tendency to indicate art. Here we are, in the middle of one of the worst pandemics in at least a hundred years, and apparently the United States Mint has decided to put out a quarter commemorating the bat on their 2020 example. They claim that it was just a sheer coincidence that they are honoring the very animal that had a hand in sparking the COVID-19 catastrophe.

That is the story either way. The rumor is that either someone ate a bat or came into contact with one and they acquired this terrible Coronavirus and then spread it to everyone else.

Considering that the Federal Reserve is printing these quarters right now as we speak, there are many people who are completely livid regarding this development. Seriously, why would you want to commemorate a bat when this animal caused this terrible virus?

Well, the story goes that this was planned long before the COVID-19 outbreak, as it is in conjunction with the America The Beautiful Quarters Program. The U.S. Mint officials swear up and down that this is just an unfortunate coincidence. However, there is no arguing with the fact that this is about the worst timing possible.

This new quarter is coming out at a time which is on par with the Spanish Flu, and there is a strong possibility that this will be one of the most unpopular quarters that the mint has ever made. The atmosphere has naturally been very sour.

“2020 is not off to the best start, but it is certainly going to turn around when these wonderful bat quarters come out,” wrote author Alanna Massey. Perhaps not surprisingly, Massey’s tweet received thousands of responses.

“Finally! I can now pay as the Goths do!” one individual tweeted out.

“This is the best quarter I’ve ever seen!” someone else wrote out facetiously. “I will never carry any other type of currency in my wallet ever again!”

To say that this would be a bizarre quarter for the U.S. Mint to put out right now would be a bit of an understatement. However, the whole purpose of this example and the other “America the Beautiful” quarters is to commemorate the beautiful landmarks, unique wildlife, and diverse environments of the United States. The bat pictured on this quarter design is that of the Samoan Fruit Bat, which is native to the U.S. outlying islands. However, there are a lot of people who are justifiably weirded out, especially considering the fact that this quarter was released on February 3, 2020, just after President Trump declared COVID-19 a national emergency.

However, in the interest of fairness, the Samoan Fruit Bat is considered an “endangered” species, and that is part of the reason that this quarter was released. Another reason for this design was to recognize that the National Park of American Samoa is the only place that is home to this unique creature.

Moreover, some think this might end up becoming desirable for coin collectors as well.

What do you think about the bat quarter? Do you like it? Or are you a bit weirded out by it? Don’t hesitate to let us know!

  1. I don’t like it. Because of the fact that it caused this coronavirius pandemic. Instead put something other on it instead of a “BAT”!

  2. Hey, would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would enjoy your content. Please let me know. Thank you.

  3. Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – digitaldredger.com – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across digitaldredger.com, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

    Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?

  4. Hi, Eric here with a quick thought about your website digitaldredger.com…

    I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

    Like yours, many of them have great content.

    But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

    I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

    Here’s a solution for you…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitor.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

    Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

    Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.
