Do it. Get rid of pennies while you're it. Frankly we could ditch all coins but quarters and dollars AFAIC.

I've never understood why we don't have a useful dollar coin. Probably has something do to with the stupid designs.

the dollar coin issue is just because of the costs of conversion to it. All cash registers would be redesigned, all vending equipment redesigned.

I lived in New Zealand for a while and they have dollar and 2 dollar coins, and they use rounding instead of pennies. It took about a week to get used to, and then I was totally convinced it was the way to go until people are ready to ditch cash all together.

My friend just got back from Korea and said everyone used their phone to pay for things. Nobody uses cash at all, even for a vending machine you can use the phone to pay.

I believe this is because the designs they've tried have sucked. When I was in Spain years ago, they had a 100 pesata coin that was basically the equivalent of a dollar coin. It was smaller in circumference but thicker than a quarter, with a smooth edge. Very different in both appearance and feel from their 25 pesata coin, which was nearly identical to our quarter.

Apparently their coin makers are much smarter than ours.

More likely, it's because the $1 dollar billion is the monetary standard, and we tend to gather a lot of them. Nobody wants to be toting a lot of coins around, because they can get heavy and awkward to walk with.

FWIW, the $2 dollar bill was a failure as well, so it's not just about coin failure. Americans use the 1/5/10/20 system with their money, and that's what they are comfortable with.

Well, people need to get over it. What the hell costs a quarter anymore - a gumball that used to be a penny? I'd rather have two or three dollar coins in my pocket than the equivalent in smaller change.

Personally, when I get change, it either goes in my desk drawer at work, or a small bank on my bureau at home. Once every six months or so I clean them out and end up with $50 or $60 bucks. I don't think to specifically grab change when I'm on my way out, because I don't need it for anything. I pay for pretty much everything with cards anyway. I can't even remember the last time I paid for something with pocket change.

It's your pattern, and you're welcome to it. Others prefer to have the change available. If you want to pay a dollar for a 10 cent item, that's your choice. Others prefer not to end up with 90 cents in change, and a lot of people don't want to do all their financial business electronically.

Next step in the equation is more quantitative easing #3, followed by China no longer accepting US treasury bonds... then hyperinflation...

We can still get penny candy and some other cheap candy that costs less than a dime, but that's about it.

For me, the pocket full of change comes from sales tax screwing stuff up. A $1 item comes out to a $1.08. Since the sales tax is 7.6%, it would be difficult to price things so that it came to exact amounts on the quarter. I also doubt that they would round back so it would make things more expensive.

Australia does the same thing. They round to the nearest nickel. I lived there for 3 years and loved it. No pennies, no dollar bills. One dollar coins and two dollar coins are the way to go. Of course, I am not big on the titty bars although I do appreciate that problem. When in doubt, it is probably best to go with the titties.

Yep. There's no reason, that I can see, why they cant round everything to the nearest .25.

Ideas like eliminating sub .25 coins are only good in theory, and only simple ones at that.

It looks all grand when you picture the simplicity of everything, fewer coins, etc.

The problem comes in when dealing with sub .25 amounts. The "rounding" that you speak of becomes a moneymaker, and whenever there's money to be made, you can bet people will exploit it.

That item costs only .20 and they round it up to .25? Most are willing to forego that nickel, but if you stack a bunch of those transactions up, you're talking some large amounts of cash that disappear.

Or what if you buy 10 of those .20 cent items and spend $2. Not so bad, but what happens if you return only one of them. Do they give you back .25 ? What if you return them all one at a time. Now you've just gained .50 and the race is on.

I'm sure there are systems out there that could make it work, but the numbers games always favor the scammers and the people willing to do ridiculous things (returning the items one at a time).

I think any industry that works in sub-cent values has a problem with it.

I do think that the dollar is taken off as the sole currency for the reserve sometime in the next 15 months though. Especially if QE #3 happens.

In fact, I'm quite pleased that my timing was off.

Do it. Get rid of pennies while you're it. Frankly we could ditch all coins but quarters and dollars AFAIC.

I've never understood why we don't have a useful dollar coin. Probably has something do to with the stupid designs.

Carrying a pocket of dollar coins IMO would be heavy and loud, and obnoxious...carrying paper dollar bills in a billfold/moneyclip is more efficient.

But as far as pennies....im all for getting rid of those bastards. I hate having pennies

Well ... if we get rid of pennies, what are we going to put on the railroad tracks to squash totally flatter than a fritter by a passing train?

I nominate Mr. GoChiefs.

We have a dollar coin machine at work. Put in a 5 and it gives you dollar coins. They work in all our vending machines. I see no problem with using them.

That's right. You will be required to carry a pocketfull of fucking dollar coins at all times. Just so you'll make loud obnoxious noises and ruin your pockets.

I think you took my post a little too literal, but really even a couple would clank around. I just don't like the sound of change in my pants...personal pref i guess.

The last few stripper bars I have been in when you cash in your $20's they give you $2 bills. It kinda pisses me off. Its like going to the Casino and only finding $10 minimum tables.

i suppose you could just "insert" the $1 coin into the stripper's coin slot. :D
