Dollar Coin

April 14, 1993

It's about time somebody suggested that the government issue a dollar coin again, the disaster of the Susan B. Anthony dollar notwithstanding (March 22). Every time I need a king's ransom worth of quarters for everything from the parking meter to the washing machine, I wish I were in England. Those heavy but convenient one-pound coins practically made the climate bearable. If the British can constantly redesign their currency, then we ought to be able to use some of our Yankee ingenuity to figure out a way to recycle all those old dollar coins languishing in warehouses.
