Eliminate Dollar Bill

Stop production on the U.S. Dollar Bill. Instead switch to using the U.S. Dollar Coin. Coins last significantly longer. In other countries, coins are used instead of the equivalent dollar amount.

Stop minting Quarter Dollars, Mint Half Dollars instead.

Some of the benefits of doing this are: No more confusion between a quarter and a golden dollar. This means that one area of resistance to use the dollar coin is eliminated. Dollar coins have lower life cycle costs than paper one dollar bills. It takes care of a major issue in trying to eliminate the 5 cent coin. (You could make the 5 cent coin form something other than nickel but it would have to get a new nick ...more »

change payment clauses in contracts 4 partial payment in coins.

The US has a lot of dollar coins in storage. Moslty at Federal Reserve Banks and Leased Space. Change the payment section of the contracts to allow payment in Coins.

Stop printing $1 bills until inventory of $1 coins goes down

Limit prodcution of One dollar bills.

The Presidential Dollar Coin act had the hopes of saving money by a swtich to coins instead of paper. Minting a Coin is cost offection over printing dollar bills. But "bad money drives out good", and so the dollar coins are little used. so here's the suggestion. Each of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks is permitted to issue up to 300,000,000 one dollar Federal Reserve Notes each calendar year. AND/OR Each ...more »

Small Federal Pay Raise in Dollar Coins

The United States Treasury will have approximately $2 billion dollars worth of dollar coins in storage. Storing these dollar coins costs money. Storing these coins securely costs the government a lot of money. My plan is to give Federal employees a small optional pay raise. Employees recieving this raise would have to A. take some portion of their salary (<0.5%) in the form of dollar coins and B. agree to spend the ...more »

Add Thickness and Weight to the Dollar Coin

The dollar coin is useless because, by touch, it is indistinguishable from a quarter. The British Pound is a useful coin because it's a convenient unit AND easy to find in your pocket. Changing the weight and size would allow continuance of the coin production, but put useable dollars into circulation. The easier it is to spend a dollar, the faster this recovery will be.
