Dollar coins

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Implement the dollar coins instead of the dollar bills. Stop printing the dollar bills. People are resistant to change by nature. Stop coddling them and institute the change to save money. Put the coins into circulation en masse and let the dollar bill die a natural death by way of pulling it out of circulation as it is done now to replace worn out 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.

Stop printing $1 bills until stock pile of $1 coins goes down

Stop printing the ones until the stock plie of coins goes down, to the point the stockpile is "normal" inventory. Then restart printing of the dollar bill if you must. Just stopping the presidential coin program is not going to do anything for the coins in storage right now.

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. This would require either an address where the coins will be delivered or and andress where the coins can be picked up by the contrator.

By using these coins, which have been minted allready, the government would not have to borrow that money,

Stop minting Quarter Dollars, Mint Half Dollars instead.

Billion dollar coin stockpile solution

Community Member kudos icon + Community member
I've read many news stories recently complaining about how much it costs the government to stockpile dollar coins that aren't being used. If you want to get the coins into circulation and out of the warehouses, get the money out to military commisaries. Substituting paper money with dollar coins will be easier on military bases, as the Forces are used to taking orders, and trying out new things with no questions asked.... more »
