This has been tried many times over the years. The experiment has proven over and over again this will not work. With the use of plastic, the dollar will last longer anyways.
I hate this idea because I hate carrying coins. Carrying cash is annoying enough, much less having these stupid dollar coins to deal with. Why not just abolish the penny?
Give me a break. Men don't like carrying around a pocket full of coins? Who uses cash anyhow? Dollar coins are a no-brainer, especially when people yell and scream about wasteful government spending. Printing dollar bills is a huge waste of money.
It's a good idea if you like carrying a coin purse... I can't imagine how many doolar coins already get lost in couches, cars, lay-z boys, or anythign else you could possibly sit in. I noble idea, but let's drop the notion that it could replace the $1 bill altogether.
Susan B reincarnated. Didn't work then, why would it now?
I hate coins. They all end up in a jar anyway.
