I have been in favor of the dollar coin for years now, but its value cannot be measured by the popularity of the coin now ("Nobody wants dollar coins," May 1). I think I have one, it's in my golf bag as a ball marker.
The value of the dollar coin lies in the elimination of the dollar bill. The dollar bill is a has very little going for it other than you can fold it and put it in your wallet. It's expensive to make and only last a short time. Sure, there is much that can be done to make the dollar coin recognizable, put a hole in it like some European currency, for example.
