The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

*I really doubt any court would accept Jefferson's blank check to Lewis and Clark as legal precedent. Although I really don't know what happened with Bush the Least's $0.00 Iraq war budget.
Cut spending duly appropriated by Congress -> breaks the Congressional Budget Act
Ignore the debt ceiling -> breaks the debt ceiling law
The president has to break the law one way or the other if Congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling.

Perhaps you're thinking of the 1886 law that prohibits the likeness of a living person on currency. The same distinction between currency and coin that leads to the loophole to be exploited by the trillion dollar platinum coin allows for likenesses of the living on coins.
I'm just throwing out some ideas here. . .
But as to the minting of the coin? For the love of Christ, please do it. She has effectively checked out. She's an un-person of her own making. So it falls to me.--ad hoc (in the hole)
