Yet another coin question

Just out of curiousity, why is the reverse side of a coin printed upside down, yet the reverse side of a bill printed the same direction as the front? Any special purpose, or was the Mint just feeling creative that day?

“I guess it is possible for one person to make a difference, although most of the time they probably shouldn’t.”

That’s odd, Canadian coins have the tops of the heads and tails the same direction.

Maybe the US Mint just thinks it’s stylish?

“If we don’t have the answer, we’ll make one up.”

Mebbe because they are expecting people to flip them vertically rather than sideways?
