Yeah... seems almost insulting to put them on money over Teddy Roosevelt, John Adams, or Woodrow Wilson. Though perhaps when printed Wilson was considered too recent. They could have swapped in the other two, though. Or even Polk.

Why not call a cent by its proper name rather than the slang use of penny? I didn't see "buck", "sawbuck" or "double-sawbuck" on the quiz so why "penny"? Pennies were used by the tyrannical government our forefathers so desperately wanted to be freed from. Our numismatic history goes back to the Coinage Act of 1792 and from Day One, it was called a cent, as in one per cent of a dollar. Let's embrace the name "cent" while we still have it around. There, I'm done...
