Letters: Dollar coins a good thought, but no one wants them

Congressman Schweikert’s heart is in the right place. He deserves credit for trying to save the taxpayer money. But his dollar coin bill is simply not a realistic solution to our economic woes. The money saved is not that much, and the American people are just not going to switch to all coins. There is a reason that there is over one billion dollars worth of coins sitting in the treasury gaining dust.

 Nobody wants them! I have to think that the money saved by switching to dollar coins will probably be offset by the massive ad campaign urging Americans to make the switch. I applaud Congressman Schweikert for thinking outside the box, but this idea is not going to solve anything.
