Stop minting and storing Presidential $1 coins

The U.S. Mint mints almost 2 milion presidential dollar coins every day at a cost of 32 cents each. Because the public prefers paper, the coins are then bagged and stored in Federal vaults. So, put the coins in circulation and pay some US debt. Then, change the law that requires the making of a presidential coin to the making of a paper dollar with a presidential seal added. Stop minting the coins and switch to printing paper.
