The Color of Money

The U.S. Mint will now produce dollar coins that feature the faces of presidents. I support the idea of a dollar coin but this batch will fail to gain popularity, just like the Susan B. Anthony dollar and the Sacagawea dollar. Those coins failed because they too closely resembled the quarter in size and weight. The new presidential coins will be the same dimensions as the Susan B. and the Sacagawea.

But, like, since there's an old white dude stamped on the coin, people will finally use them, right?
