Dave DuGoff gives reasoned plea for dollar coins ("Sensible change: Switch to $1 coins," April 26). I am all for it, but for some reason, the U.S. has made dollar coins almost like quarters, and as a result, no one will use them.
Has anyone ever thought of looking at how other countries do this? For example, a similar coin in the United Kingdom is much smaller and thicker than other coins and can easily be differentiated by feel or vision. What's the matter with us?
