It had better be somewhere on the coin.

Sooner or later, something will be the “last straw” and this country will revolt.

Sure, where it will get worn off faster.

I don't have as much problem with where the words are located as I do with WHY IS THERE A COIN FOR THEM TO BE LOCATED ON AT ALL!!

How many times do we have to go through this? How many million of the previous dollar coins are sitting around in government wharehouses?

People DON'T WANT a dollar coin. Why can't those fools in Washington get it through their thick heads.

In 2007 some were minted without the motto by mistake and were released into the wild. I believe, if this is one of those, you might have a winner. If newer, ignore this message.

If the smart phones are working, and Real Housewives of some city are on, it won’t happen.

Revolution is born of pain. The sheeple are content if they have the things mentioned. I think the average American doesn’t even grasp what American culture is about, or what liberty means.

Personally I think that the next step will be an American coin minted with the words: “There is no god but Allah....” in Arabic.

And our congresscritters will bow reverently towards the White Hut.

It is not that the American People don't want a dollar coin. We just don't want a dollar coin that looks like a quarter.

Old news. All the presidential coins have “In God We Trust” on the side of the coin.

In the case of the Washington coins, there was a batch that made it into circulation without the motto on the side. I've heard it had something to do with the way the coins fed thru the mint press.

As a coin collector, I've seen where this coin “without the motto” will sell anywhere from $150 to $200 depending on the condition, so if you have one (missing the motto), either put it someplace safe OR take it to a coin store and see what they offer you (or better yet, if your coin store is like mine, they have a board where you can list it, as you will get a better sale price from other collectors than at the store).

“WHY IS THERE A COIN FOR THEM TO BE LOCATED ON AT ALL!!”

Because so many Congressmen are idiots. A dollar coin cost more to make than a paper dollar but the lifetime of the coin is so much longer than the paper dollar that it would save a lot of MONEY. People don’t want a pocket full of heavy coins and won’t start using them as long as they keep printing the paper dollar. We had large Eisenhower dollars, Susan B. Anthony dollars that got confused for quarters and the Sacajawea? dollars. Now we have the Presidential series dollars, or at least some of them. At least they may have spurred some warehouse construction.

Nothing so dramatic. Just watching the fall of another country, from the inside. It’s the natural chain of events, and predicted by many over the years.

The experiment is drawing to a close.

Your probably right, the quarter will probably be our smallest denomination coin and then they will stop the paper dollar. Next up would be to make the quarter out of plastic.

Vice President Biden Announces U.S. will Halt Production of Excess Dollar Coins
 
.....As part of the Obama Administration’s Campaign to Cut Waste, Vice President Biden today announced the U.S. Mint would suspend the production of Presidential dollar coins for circulation. Today, nearly 1.4 billion surplus dollar coins are sitting in Federal Reserve vaults due to lack of demand for the coins.

In the entire series produced “IN GOD WE TRUST” appears on the rim, on the 9th through 20th it also appears on the face of the coin, probably because of complaints of those who couldn’t find it on the rim. I’ll give $5.00 each for any of these series found Not to have “IN GOD WE TRUST” on the face or rim.

When the Presidential dollars came out I heard many comments it was the first US coin to have “IN GOD WE TRUST” or any writing on the rim, but the early half dollars had “In God WE TRUST” on the rim, it was replaced with a reeded edge in 1836 and “IN GOD WE TRUST” was placed on the face of the coin. I have several of the early half dollars.

I have said for years, the only way the coin will work is if the paper “ONE” is discarded. Print more $2 bills, eliminate pennies (round up or down). (makes room in the cash drawer for the $1 coin. $2 bills go where the ones used to be.

Problem solved!

In one sense, you're wrong ... it's found all over the top side.

In another sense, you're right ... turns out the specie is a completely useless blank ... a slug, if you will ... just like the worthless ass depicted on its face!

Way, way too expensive... considering the petroleum involved. They'll go one even better: The next quarter (and dime, nickle, $5, $10, etc) will be made out of bits. This will enable the Federal Mint to go into overdrive "printing" new bits of money.

Only once if they would just quit printing paper dollar bills. Until they do that people will not carry them, no matter how many ugly women they put on them.

Heck they whine about how much money it takes to make the Dollar bill, I wouldn;t put it past this administration to outsource the production of Dollar Bills to China....

One Idea I haven’t seen as an alternative for a Dollar Bill would be a “Plastic Dollar Chit”. This would be like a dollar bill but made out of flexible and would be smaller than a Dollar bill but the same width or slightly less in width of a Dollar bill. You could even make it the same size as a credit card to make it compatible with current wallets. Basically easier to carry than either a Dollar bill or a coin.

Of course we chould just move the Dollar Bills to be made from plastic like australlia and that would increase the lifetime of the Dollar bill which would reduce costs, knowing the eco-weenies they would probably demand that these be made from biodegradable corn platics that would cause them to degrade faster than current dollar bills.....

Coins won;t take over the dollar spot in this day and age because:

1. Coins are heavy
2. No one carried coin purses anymore
3. Vending machines and toll booths now take bills.
4. The value of our money is down so if you want to carry any large amount of money around as coins you are going to need a LOT more space...
