Check this out… the vending machine at work can take $5 bills, and it gives dollar coins as change. These gold, Andrew Johnson $1 coins. Did you know we had these?
Much like the newly designed penny, I detest these. Not the actual coins; they’re pretty sharp, objectively. What makes me wonder is why we’re spending money on these in the first place. Did we need a prettier penny? What was wrong with the old ones? Are they trying to get us to like pennies? Why?
I dunno. It probably took a million or two (or twenty) to set up these redesigns; it just seems like that kind of money could be better spent. Kinda like that scene in “Dave”, it just seems sad that we’re cutting services and education money so that people can have a prettier penny. Or dollar.
