I was reading the BBC news page the other day when I ran across an interesting fact: apparently, the US dollar coin is still being made despite the bad reception it encountered when it was first introduced. The American people are reluctant to give up their bills.

Well, we're all creatures of habit. I can't fault that. But, it also appears that switching to coins for the lower currencies would save hundreds of billions of dollars in printing costs.

I hadn't thought of it that way; perhaps if people knew that by using a dollar coin that they were saving a dollar (or more!) in the long run, they would be more likely to use them. I know I am.

(I also like the idea of having a coin purse that doesn't just have pennies in it.)

So, anyone reading this, request dollar coins in your change!
