    The dollar bill is (duh) the most circulated paper currency we have, which means it gets worn out the quickest, which means we'd have to replace it the most. Coin form ensures that a lot of waste is prevented.

    So I have to ask...you find this bad because...why?
    The GOP Suggested it, it must be bad.

    It sounds like a great idea to me. Let's make the dollar coin the size of the dime, to reflect its current value. We could get rid of the penny and nickle, and make a 50cent coin to look like the current nickle. The quarter could then be the new penny, the $5 could be the new 50 cent piece, and the $10 bill the lowest denomination of paper. That way, we'd know the value of our money.
