How will the strippers keep the coins from falling out of their G strings?!?!

So will strippers start wearing coin purses around their waists? I mean how I am supposed to put a $1 coin in a g-string honestly. On a serious note I really like my $1 bills because they are light weight in my pocket and easy to carry. Could you imagine walking up to a convenience store counter that runs out of $10 bills and has to give you $13 dollar coins for change?

Since so many people seem opposed to $1 dollar coins because they look like quarters - evidently most of those folks are BILND since the current $1 coins are gold colored unlike any other coins we've got. Yeah the Susan B Anthony dollars were pretty much a bust and they mostly got melted, but I go to the bank and get rolls of shiny gold dollars to carry around - they make great impressions on most folks.
Why don't we start minting $2 coins to replace the Jefferson $2 bill nobody seems to observe outside race track bettors windows? Perhaps this would help overcome the resistance to $1 coins we're experiencing. On the other hand, forget about $5 coins they'd be too cumbersome to carry in change for a Jackson.

Some one else may have mentioned this already but can you imagine how many cash machines, vending machines, etc. will have to be changed! That is a serious expense!
