This coin has been corrected for the complainers.
"Ocian in view! O! The Joy!" was the original quote that William Clark wrote around October 08-December 07, 1805. The mint was fully aware of the original spelling but chose to go with the common spelling to prevent constant questions about the word Ocian. As some may have noticed they did not correct O! which should be Oh!
Granted spelling variations due exist in Old English, this was likely just a mistake since the Lewis & Clark logs are packed with multiple spellings of the same words. (Back in the days spelling was not a priority.)
Second mistake overlooked was when Clark wrote "Ocian in view! O! The Joy!" he was actually twenty miles and three weeks away from the ocean. It was actually just a large open water plain that he found. Upon reaching the actual pacific ocean he wrote more but those quotes would not fit neatly on a coin..
