DC Quarter design rejected.

A Quarter
George Washington not only gave the city his name, but he also disliked taxation without representation

Apparently, the U.S. Mint refuses to mint the DC quarter because it included the city’s motto: “Taxation without representation.” And, of course, the mint doesn’t really have to care what the city thinks about that decision, because the city has no representation.

On the other hand, the U.S. Mint is SURROUNDED by D.C. residents, all of whom they just pissed off.

You can express your outrage through a pre-written form letter than will be ignored by (but probably annoying to) the U.S. Mint here:

No representation is made that doing so won’t get you placed on an FBI watch list.
