Let's have a little thought experiment:
1. A lot of famous people may have become even more famous for being killed, like John Lennon, JFK, Abe Lincoln, Gandhi or Martin L. King.
2. That may be influenced by the thought of "either die a hero or live long enough to become a villain".
3. Therefore the act of killing a person is a fundamental act of making this person famous or rather making the actions of this person especially memorable for following generations, i.e. creating a martyr.
4. If that is true, the persons who killed the aforementioned persons are equally important for the commemoration of certain important acts throughout history.

Then we have the question: Why are there coins with the heads of famous persons and not of their killers, if they may be equally important for shaping the historical background of a certain culture in regards of the actions their victim is known for? A John Wilkes Booth penny, or a Lee Harvey Oswald quarter perhaps? Why not.

If it wasn't from 1979, I'd say it was from the Civil War era.

When the young men went off to the battle, their parents would give them a pinny on a string to wear as a necklace. That way if they ever ran out of money, they'd always have a penny for something to drink or a bite to eat.

If anyone is wondering, this is a common practice among fisherman,simply drill a hole near the top of a small coin and attach it to your line, they do this as opposed to buying the same little metal disk for some stupid price. I've forgotten the actual purpose of it. The problem with this is it's illegal to deface money and so can land whoever does it with a large fine.

Here's what I did to a penny and a couple matches with a pellet rifle. I was about 60 feet away, standing when I shot the penny, and crouching when I shot the match heads.

I often referred to sneaking up on people in multiplayer shooters, and popping them in the back of the head with my pistol as them getting, "John Wilkes Booth'd." I can't be the only one right?
