    Although he appears on the nickel, unfortunately, he also appears on the highly-unpopular $2 bill.
    Many attempts have been made to eliminate the $1 bill. If they did, I’d like the U.S. Treasury to bring out the billions of $2 bills and $1 coins that have been languishing in vaults for over 30 years.
    The $2 bill would occupy the old $1 slot in cash registers, and the $1 coin would occupy the empty coin slot next to the quarters, which is used today for half-dollars and dollars, when they are rarely encountered.
    Canada successfully eliminated both the $1 and $2 bills in the last decade or two. They now have coins for both denominations (the $1 is called a “loonie,” because it has a loon bird on the reverse, and the $2 is called a “twonie,” a portmanteau between “two” and “loonie”), and both are well-utilized.
    The smallest Canadian bill is a $5, and all new Canadian bills are polymer.

    Thank you, Mr. Gilchrist! Oh, and Aunt Fritzi, of course!

    For some reason, since the demise of the silver dollar, Americans have resisted dollar coins and probably always will.

    Beautiful. Always wonderful, seeing Phil, Fritzi, Nancy and Sluggo getting together to enjoy a family picnic during the holidays.

    @Guy Gilchrist (yesterday) re: you comment to Ghost01….sometimes GoComics is having a problem, or something in between. I, too had problems seeing the comics for a while, but it was all the comics, not just yours.

    And I had one… sadly, as a kid, all I thought of was what I was going to buy with it… (sigh…)

    @Kaffekup probably always will

    I think it’s partly the size thing, I’ve heard some confusing the Kennedy 50 cent piece and the Quarter with it… next to blame are probably vending machines, and their inability to take some coins… lol!

    Sometimes it seems too that people like the paper currency more, or the fact that nowadays people whip out plastic (or like when they used to write checks), thinking that it saves them from having to carry physical change around….

    Thomas Jefferson also said, “Indeed I tremble for my country when I consider that God is just.”

    Both of those coins destroy wallets. They’re big and heavy.

    Other than that you can use them to buy beer and food.

    Too bad our liberty is gradually diminishing.

    My mom still sends my kids $2 bills for some holidays like Valentine’s Day. It’s sweet and many of their classmates have never seen them.
