EdNortonsTwin: I tried bringing $1 coins with me to mexico - the gold ones you get from the USP. I thought they'd make for a great way to tip someone less than you should have. By the time they figured out it was just a buck - I'd be on my way. Didn't go over so well.So, I've moved on to the $2 bill for tips, when the tip should be more like $3-4.Suckas!!!!CSB
Great Janitor: Okay, moving to make money out of cheaper materials is a bad idea. Look at Ancient Rome. They had gold coins, all was good. Then they went with zinc (I think it was zinc) coins coated in gold. The cheaper coins devalued the currency and created a rampant increase in inflation.
Virtual Pariah: JackieRabbit: What a stupid idea. You cannot do away with dollar bills. Many people never carry coins these days. I never do until I get home. Then the coins get tossed in a bowl in the kitchen. Then twice a year or so, I take them to the Coinstar. But I do use dollar bills and always want some singles in my wallet for tipping, donation jars, etc.From a common sense standpoint, it's a great idea.The coins will last longer, and therefore be cheaper in the long run.
