Seems that our congress critters have decided that changing the design of the latest dollar coin will improve its acceptance.
I have nothing against a dollar coin and have used them when they’ve come into my possession.
But seriously, is there any possible way a dollar coin is going to become widely used without first discontinuing the dollar bill?
It’s the same monumental obstacle that caused the failure of the earlier Susan B Anthony coin and the 2 dollar bill. There’s just no incentive to change.
So quit wasting our money designing an minting currency that’s just going to pile up in a warehouse somewhere. Or if you’re going to do it, don’t do a half assed job of it.
