I vote no!

Dollar BillFor starters, I never really thought about this until I moved overseas.  Now, I’m living in the UK and hope the US never switches to dollar coins exclusively.  Why?  Well, here, we have 1 and 2 pound coins and no bills.  The smallest bill is a 5 pound note.  I can pay for a purchase with a tenner (10 pound note) and get nothing but coins.  And they weight a ton.

I hate it and i think most americans would too.  This is a horrible idea.

[Update 2011-03-11 18:40:52]  Here’s another article talking about how people in the US dislike dollar coins.  After using 1 and 2 pound coins, I am one of the one’s who would vote no one dollar coins.
