Well most vending machines that take bills also take $5.00 bills the post office stamp machine gives dollar coins for change. At most we would probably only have 4 to 5 dollar coins in our pocket at a time no worse than the quarters. Speaking of which why don't banks give out halfs routinely we used to have them all the time when I was younger.

BTW, it would not bother me to FIND a pocket full of them!

IDEA! Maybe we could get folks to start filling fruit jars with them and burying them in their back yards! The new dollar bank hoarders! HA HA
