How It Works

To decipher this code, first arrange the coins in presidential order: Washington (quarter), Jefferson (nickel), Lincoln (penny) and Roosevelt (dime). Read the letter at the bottom of each coin, then move clockwise to the next set of letters until you decode the entire message.

You can write the letters in these blanks to make it easier:
“_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _    _ _    _ _ _’_    _ _ _ _ _ _ _.” —Romans 13:4

Coolness!

If you counted all of the U.S. coins in circulation—in vaults, cash registers, purses or piggy banks—there would be approximately 12 pennies for each quarter.

Look for a new decoder in the next issue of Clubhouse magazine.
