Because cashiers mistake them for twenties?
Male? Female? Other?
Guy...See the large Adam’s Apple?

Nowadays that isn’t a positive indicator... :)
I pay with those trillion dollar coins and scoot out while the cashier is making change ...
How about a smart young man who is a student at Auburn?

I hope so...
Brilliant idea. Stick it to the minimum wage cashiers. Great way to get your point across.
This time of year, pizza delivery people get a lot of $2 bills, given to college kids by their relatives.
Try the $1 "gold" coins. Intrinsically worth more than the paper money - and - it'll drive 'em nuts. No spot in the till for them either.
I had to explain those coins to a Dollar Store clerk. Yes, it said “one dollar” on the bottom. Yes, I can buy a $1 item with what looks like a quarter. These were silver dollars.
My son thought it was hilarious to go through a drive through and buy a slushee with 2 $1 coins, while the clerk thought they were quarters and kept asking for change.
No one made that mistake with Sacajawea dollars though, but it did cause questions as to whether they were still legal and in use.
Who cares. Any writer for the Ludwig von Mises Institute is one of the good guys.
A few years back, I had one of those gag $1,000,000 bills. I handed it to a cashier to pay for a small purchase, the sweet young thing's eyes got big and she handed it back to me and apologized for not being able to make change for it.
I maybe should have told her to just give me whatever she had in the register and she could keep the rest as a tip.. To this day she probably remembers when she waited on a wealthy customer.
