    I had read that they were going to start doing this, but I didn't know so quick. Just had a few George Washingtons float through our office, so we each swiped one.

    Should be interesting, and if I recall, the mint will make quite a bit of money if they're collected as much as the state quarters were, but I don't see it being any more successful in making a $1 coin any more popular than previous efforts. I doubt anything will until they stop printing dollar bills.

    The collectors will like them, but unless we get rid of the paper dollar, the coin will never take hold.

    All our vending machines at work take 'em.

    'Course..since nobody uses them for anything else, they usually spit out 20 quarters if you use a five. I'm convinced the same four dollar coins are just circulating through the machines. When I do get one in with the rest of the change, I just use it in the machine the next day.

    The machines where I work take them, but I never see anyone use the $1 coins. It seems like many people don't ever spend the coins after they do get them. Plus, the vending company must just cash those in and only stock the change in the machine with quarters and lesser coins.

    i like $1 coins...but i dont like getting $19 back in coins....but now i think about it...it beats getting $19 in quarters...

    like the quarters, i'll keep only 1x for my collection (could be scratched but so long as it aint dull).

    I like dollar coins. They won't get acceptance though, until the BEP stops making bills.

    Vending machines have come standard with dollar coin acceptance since the push for the "golden dollar" a few years ago. The problem I hear at work (I work for a vending company) is that operators like the dollar coin because they can give change for larger bills. However what they run into is they go to the bank for change and cannot get them.

    Ugh, I hate the dollar coins. Give me my greenbacks any day of the week. Those do look very cool though.

    that's good though, Jux, as you can put the money in more inventive places that just under a strap :p

    Strip clubs in Canada work differently. You put the money in your mouth and lie down on the stage, then the girls crawl all over you. If you've got less than a five, usually they'll just pull your shirt up and give you a pink belly.

    Bills get you better things.

    So does Grover Cleveland get two versions, one for each of his non-consecutive terms?

    And what does this mean for the game of quarters? We need glasses with a wider rim now!
    She gets two dollars if she can pick them up when I stand them on edge and she doesn't use hands (or feet).
