I like the dollar coins. They remind me of the gold coins of old. Having a bunch would be like looting a small treasure chest and buying a soda with them you could pretend that you're buying a magic potion. Them you can carry them around in a small pouch and act like the cat is a mythical beast that wants to kill you and take your treasure.
Someone gave me 2 dollar coins to pay for something they bought where I work. Also, when we were buying train tickets to get to NY for Wrestlemania last year, the machine spit out about $15 in dollar coins as change
I hadn't realized this when I put a twenty in, so now I have like forty lbs of change. If I have to go buy a Calzone for George Steinbrenner, it's gonna be a lil weird; particularly since he's dead.
As a Canadian, my sympathy for you hauling around 78 pounds in change is low.
Maybe this story will help.
Friend of mine and our co-worker go to this course they need to take. Our co-worker wanted some change for something and decided to use the vending machine to obtain it. He knew he'd get coins, so that's not the issue, he figured he puts a $20 in, he'll get back 9 Twoonies, for his change. He got back $18 in quarters. My friend found it so hilarious he texted me about it right away, so when I saw our co-worker about 20 minutes later I asked, "Got a quarter I can borrow?" He screamed "f***!!! How do you know about that already?!!" and stormed off, still pissed about all his quarters.
