I hardly ever get dollar coins for change, although they are still in circulation. Since they are in circulation where did they all go since there is no practical purpose for them.
Are they in coin jars in houses around the country waiting for the practical application for using them?
Monterey parking is a combination of lots with obtain a ticket and put in dash, and street side meters with both credit card and coin operated.
We were looking for coins to feed the coin-operated parking meter and we cleaned out our quarters so I saw a change machine and decided to go get some quarters.
To my surprise it only dispenses dollar coins and not quarters.
Just possibly Monterey and other cities across the country found a market for using dollar coins in their parking control systems.
And now I know where the dollar coins went.
