Keeping the $1 bill is silly. It doesn't make sense on any level.
I would start with the penny. Those are the biggest waste ever...
At the rate the fed is devaluing our currency, they might as well hand out chocolate coins and say they're worth a buck. At least we'd have something to eat when it's completely worthless.
Let's just go to debit cards and do away with paper money / coins all together! I hardly ever carry cash anymore anyways. I certainly don't want to be lugging around a pocket full of $1 coins. Stupid Idea!
$1 coins are wonderful for vending machines
I don't want 4 dollar coins change in my pocket, folding 4 dollar bills and sticking them in a wallet or pocket works just fine . Congress doen't remember what a dollar bill is , or they wouldn't throw so may away so often on STUPID pet projects .
Just make sure they feel different from quarters, i.e. like the Euro coins that are easy to differentiate.

For those that say they don't want to carry around a bunch of dollar coins, consider how many quarters you carry around. The dollar is a similar "low value" thing you typically don't need to carry in large quantities.
It is a money saving tactic that has worked. There is no reason not to. I just feel bad for all those strippers whose gstrings arent equipped to take coins.
