The Susan B. Anthony coin was issued to meet a specific currency need – a dollar currency more enduring than the paper dollar bill. Therefore, the coin was produced for that particular purpose. However, after the coin was released, it was poorly received by the American populace who did not widely accept and use the coin for a variety of reasons. Since no one would keep and spend them, getting them into the currency
circulation, they were cast aside. Throughout the history of coinage, there has never been a coin that was deemed worthless, whether because of misprinting, overprinting, double printing, or whatever, that did not become a collector’s item. The populace just did not appreciate its value at the time.
We, the individuals suffering from addiction, are frequently treated the same way. We are cast aside or discarded because no one else could see our value or sometimes had no use for us. Yet, the Susan B. Anthony coin was always worth at least a dollar, no matter what. Its more profound value could not be appreciated at the time. All too often, our value cannot be seen because of the extraneous problems plaguing us from our addictions.
Nevertheless, deep inside all of us is a valuable golden nugget whose shine is yet to be discovered. Our value lies in our sustained recovery, actually more valuable than gold, just waiting to pop forth and be shared. You are indeed a collector’s item, and remember, “Each day my value is greater.”
