    I actually had a weird dream about dollar coins couple of years ago when I took a lot of coins to the bank and got investigated for money laundering.

      Assmerica: too fucking stupid to change the money by just withdrawing the ugly, filthy, green-diarrhea-colored dollar bill from circulation.

        Dollar coins are not commonly used in the US but countries that USD as local currencies such as Ecuador, El Salvador, Panama, etc are commonly used.Which is good they last longer and don't have to have new shipment of $1 bills overseas.

          Guess I'm in the minority. Having lived in Switzerland for 2 years I learned the convenience of large denomination coins. If rather have $1 coins than $1 bills. I like the Swiss $5 coin too.

                So what I'm getting is people disliked the coin because it would be heavy? That just sums up the us I guess full of lazy people that really don't give a shit. Kind of like how I don't care about the opinion of everyone who disliked the coins I like shiny things give me the coins

                  The US is the only country left using a one-unit bill. You have to take dollar bills away to get people use the coins.

                    USA has let their largest denomination coins grow so worthless that Americans have forgotten how to use coins. They hate coins because they've gotten used to thinking of them as worthless, they dont have coin pockets in their wallets, and they forget to use them so when they travel to a country where coins actually have value, they keep them because they have value but forget that they can use them to pay with so it keeps accumulating in their pockets.
                    Theo should have removed pennies and added dollar coins from circulation at least 20 or 30 years ago or earlier before all coins started to be considered almost worthless.

                            In Brazil 1 real bill disappeared and the 1 real coin is everywhere. Now you can buy the 1 real bill on internet for 10 times its face value.

                                          I am in the vending business and dollar coins are great for change and very convenient. I love the dollar coin. It is a shame casino slot machines don't take coins anymore. The sound of a jackpot was a nice musical sound youngsters will never know. Like pay phone tones, dial up modems connecting, and live bands.

                                                        Stop Printing dollar bills mint only 1$ coins under Congress and the U.S. Mint leave the Fed out of it.. I would rather have dollar coins than bills, because the constitution clearly stated that Congress SHALL mint money there is no provision in the constitution that alows the Congress to pass a power/responsibility to another organization in this case the federal reserve. Creepy fact the last executive order JFK signed gave the Congress the power to coin and to print money without the Federal Reserve 's involvement.
