So I’d heard for years the U.S. government has been trying to get people to use dollar coins instead of dollar bills.
Haven’t ever seen one in real life, either.
Of course, given the continuing availability of the paper version, I reckon there’s no real incentive for anyone to switch and actually use coins instead.
Imagine my surprise when a store clerk somewhere in Portland last week apologized and asked me if it’d be OK for my change to include a dollar coin.
I happily accepted.
