Do you like the dollar coin?

I do. I'm kind of sad it isn't more widespread.

  • Dollar coins are very convenient. I've lived in other countries that have used similar coins, and I never missed having paper money for such a small denomination. They're quite attractive (and contrary to the myth purported above, they DO say "In God We Trust" around the edge of the coin).

  • It reminds me of the 1 euro coin and I like having them. It's better than sorting through bills or having a huge wad of dollar bills. However, the automatic toll booth on the tri state in IL won't accept them and I learned that the hard way. Too bad it never caught on.

  • I like them as collecting, but not at spending. I'd get them when buying stamps in the machine. I'm just thinking since I'm in Japan now...yen, most of it is change and i couldn't stand the rattle. I like bills better so the dollar coin would just be sitting in my coin jar. Bills seem to keep me a bit more I like the dollar a collectible only.

  • Coins are a lot more conveniant than bills. I haven't seen any of them around, though.

  • I personally like bills better... since I can spend them. All our change is currently being saved for our son's college. Which is a good cause too... I just like having my dollar bills more than a dollar coin.

  • I will not accept them. The new US dollar coins have the "In God We Trust " Omitted.
