    Why, oh WHY does the Fed think yet another $1 coin will make it?

    [dunno] Guess it's just something else to waste money on and for coin collectors.

    If they make silver dollars from silver again (like the old ones) I would be THRILLED to buy as many of them as I could....1 FRN each.

    Save the $$ printing paper Dollar's. Do away with them completlyNO!! Only then will coins be used for more than a novelty.
    And monkeyman, I concur with SILVER coins and Silver Certificates..Get our financial feet back onto something solid.

    I like the new coins. I am gonna try to switch off of dollar bills. they are novel if nothing else. Hell I carry $10 in $2's all the time now, so what is one more quirk?

    Gues who's gonna pay for new cash drawers ( with one more slot) across the country??( look in the mirror). Don't know why they couldn't just toss 'em in the dollar slot...( you aren't supposed to spend 'em [LMAO])

    I know at least at the convenience store where I work there are spots of pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters and another space for coins where we put all the other coins, be it half dollars, silver dollars, Susan B. dollars, Sackajuia Dollars and soon no doubt the new dollar coins. As long as they are 'legal tender' and not just a collectors coin (like Frainklen Mint stuff or some such) then I dont get what their issue was.

    I think $5 and $10 coins would be more readily accepted.
