Just had a whole batch of United States Silver coins rejected by GL for the following reasons-

"Image possibly infringes on copyright, trademark, other intellectual property or privacy rights, or the image is deemed as Editorial Only and cannot be sold as Creative Royalty Free. Do not resubmit."

Agencies are starting to get anal about that kind of stuff. If I shoot any money subjects it's not the primary subject and, where possible, it's thrown out of focus.

It's ignorance on the part of the reviewer.  US coins and currency isn't trademarked.
