    Nowadays it would be pretty tough to write on a loonie ;). It’s worth even less today; won’t even buy a liter of gas (it’s $1.08/L where I live).

    Why does Michael often seem like he has a bad Trump like comb over?

    They wanted to do away with the $1 bill, use only coins. They last longer. But the public complained…

    @gedgar – they keep trying. I read an article recently where the US govt has a large surplus of collector dollar coins because no one wants them. While I wouldn’t mind a dollar coin, it is sad that they keep trying unsuccessfully on our dime (so to speak).

    lightenup: the dollar coin is a microcosm of why we are never actually going to reduce government spending. Reducing government spending means that some people, somewhere in the country, are going to be inconvenienced in some way. If we aren’t willing to put up with the tiny inconvenience of using a dollar coin instead of a dollar bill, something that will save the government billions in printing costs over the long haul, what are the chances any of us will accept the more significant inconveniences that would come with real spending cuts? About zero…

    BTW, what’s with the crummy quality of the image today? Pixels all over the place. Looks like it was printed on an ’80s-vintage dot matrix printer…

    Canada already has $1 and $2 coins. The vending machine industry loved it. At least it is far cheaper than re-printing high circulation bills. The government is still talking about phasing out the penny in Canada.

    The times they are a “changing”…

    Glad to see everyone in their usual negative mood today!

    I noticed the pixelation too, Puddleglum. GoComics has gone weird this morning.

    I knew a guy who would only use coins cause he thought they were cleaner. He would wash his money in the sink every night. While I think he took it to extremes, he could be right. Paper can soak stuff up, but if you get ickyness on a coin, you can just rinse it off.

    Smallest Euro bill is a ten. It was the same for the German Mark before the Euro.

    How about making the dollar bill worth something? Revaluation of currency was a European favorite back in the “old” days. A 10:1 exchange would get us back to just about where the value was about 40 years ago. Or we could go 100:1 and turn the clock back about 80 years.
