This question comes up frequently. If you think about it for a few moments, how likely would it be for the Mint to make the same "mistake" on hundreds of millions of coins struck over a 14-year period without fixing it? The explanation is that it's NOT an error, just artistic license!

To clear things up, coins are said to be STRUCK or MINTED. The word "print" is used for things made with paper and ink, like $1 bills.
