    I used a dollar coin in a vending machine at a library and it gave me an infinite amount of uses at the vending machine for that specific item whenever I wanted any day.

      Conspiracy Theorists: We demand our money be backed with Gold!

      US Federal Reserve: Creates $1 coins made of gold

      Conspiracy Theorists: Not like that!!!!

        The vending machines at my work give back change with these coins.

          I'm pretty sure no coin cost under its actual value to produce. Thats why there's laws against using coins as scrap metal. If they didn't have these laws you could make millions off of pennies if you sold the copper as scrap metal. "The price of copper on September 16, 2019, was $2.64 a pound, which meant the copper in each penny was worth about 1.7 cents"

            One of the laundromats in my area gives dollar coins from their change machine so now I have a fuck ton that I probably wont ever use because I keep forgetting to take them when I go back to the laundromat

              As an American I use these coins a lot actually. On a normal work week I will go through about a dozen of them. Counts on the vendors you go to whether they issue out change with dollar bills or gold coins.

                    Fun challenge : Go to a store and buy something for $3.50 (make sure the cashier is under about 35 years old), and pay with a $2 bill, an Eisenhower dollar coin, and a Kennedy Half. When they get confused, say "oh, I'm sorry" and take the Ike back and swap it out for a Susan B. Anthony dollar.

                      I must say as an American that lives near the Canadian border, I always think the whole dollar coin idea sounds great, until I take a day trip to Canada and come back home with a couple pounds of loonies and toonies in my pockets.

                        I like the dollar coin and the dollar bill. I use dollar coins in vending machines all the time, they don't jam. 2 coins, 1 Coke Zero, no lost bills.

                          I wasn't a fan of Canada's loonie ($1 coin) replacing the $1 bill at the beginning then 1 week later it became a habit . We have a $2 coin as well and also no pennies... you get use to change. (No pun intended)

                                  I knew a guy who got 5% on his Mastercard, he was ordering $10,000 of coins every week. He'd deposit them, pay the MC bill and order $10,000 more. He was making $500 on every transaction.

                                      I have not used dollar coins since 2017. I brought a large bag of coins, mostly dollars and quarters to a local takeout place to pay for my lunch.

                                                    The Australian government got all of us to give up the one dollar note by taking it out of circulation so now we have one and two dollar coins but you have to be old to know about the paper versions

I wasnt really paying attention when they did. but i remembered about them and wondered what ever happened to them.

It would be available by special order, but scarce. Then increase the amount of $2 bills to compensate. Don't want to carry lots of coins? Fine just carry the $2 bills. Either way it would be more efficient.
