    Or we could go the way the military did in Iraq. When the transport of coins into theater for post exchanges became to expensive, they switched to "pogs". Little cardboard circles that stated their worth with a picture of something military on it. We could go that way with the pogs looking the same as the original coin.

    Yeah sure. I would almost say get rid of cash altogether.

    Most financial transactions these days are electronic which are always down to the penny or even fractions of pennies in certain cases, thus the impact of not having physical pennies would be lessened.

    So, sure, lets do it.

    somewhere i cant remember i have about 150 dollars worth of aafes tokens.there were two reasons they used them,one was because soldiers got tired of carrying metal coins everywhere and two was because when the coins would fall out of soldiers pockets the locals would try and kill eachother to pick them up,i mean literally they would swing shovels at eachothers heads over a quarter.

    No - foremost: coins are noisy.

    Just like dogtags are noisy.

    So they sleeve dogtags and used paper for coins.
