    Do you think if the mint stops making One Dollar Bills to try to get people to use dollar coins we could see increased use of the Two Dollar Bill instead?

    Yes. Just remember, $2's won't be as cool when they become the replacement for the $1. I see a whole lot people saying how cool it would be for the use of the $2 to increase and for the production of the $1 to cease. Do any of them realize that the high and mighty $2 dollar bill will then just be a regular old $2??

    The Mint would have to start printing money in order to stop printing it.

    $2.00 notes were last printed in 2006. When the present supply runs low, the Fed will order more. None are expected to be ordered until FY2014 at the earliest.

    If the $2 bill becomes a more frequently used bill, then I think we'll see the value of the 76 and older bills finally start to go up since more will be destroyed through circulation.

    Righto. I misread the info in Dragos earlier discussion of redesigning the $2.00.

    Righto, is right. It is NOT the U.S. Mint that pints our paper currency. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing does that. The U.S. Mint makes our coins.

    As for the $2 bill becoming more common if the $1 bill is scrapped, most public opinions say "yes" the $2 bill WILL become more popular. And yes, they are printing some current style $2 bills this (2012) fiscal year, which they expect to last till about 2014, which is probably close to when the "Meaningful Access" generation of (the next) currency redesign starts, which the $2 bill is included. And who knows? The $2 bill may be the first denomination to come out, just because it is not a very important denomination as of yet, and they may want to use it as "the test" for the Meaningful Access currency redesign.

    Oh, and even if the dollar coin replaces the $1 bill, I wonder if the Treasury will still redesign the $2 bill every other time in the future that they redesign the $5-$100. Or replace it with a $2 coin after the first five or so years after the $1 bill goes. Or maybe when the next redesign comes along after the Meaningful Access redesign.

    One more thing. If the $2 bill and the dollat coin become "just another ordinary $2 bill or dollar coin, START DIGGING OUT SOME HALVES!!! :devil: Halves may never be very popular again, and there will be no cash register space for them. I wonder what cashiers would do with them? :D

    What intrests me though, is, I read on Where's George? that the BEP had a report about "withholding" there $1 bills right now. I wonder why? :rollling:

    I think the strippers would rather have 2 dollar bills thrown at them rather than $1 coins

    *sihg* Must we constantly bring that stupid "stripper" issue into this? Who cares what the strippers want? They are of little importance.

    Having said that, like I said in another thread, I hope the $1 bill sticks around so that the half still has a place in the cash registers. Even if some of you believe they will never circulate in large numbers again.

    What about a $2 coin, to eliminate this so-called "issue" about increasing $2 production

    Dump the $1 paper like we did the half dollar.

    The half dollar does not have a place in cash registers now. We only make it for collectors now!

    The half DOES have a slot in all five slot cash registers: 1c, 5c, 10c, 25c, and 50c. The only problem is, cashiers use the half's space for spare rolls of coins and other junk. Same with the $20 bill slot, which displaces the $2 bill's slot, which should be set up $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, and $50s and $100s go either under the cash drawer or the $20s. $100s should go under the cash drawer or in a safe automatcally, while $50s should be kept under the $20s just in case the cashier is in a position to make change for a $100 bill.

    Don't forget a spot for the One Dollar Coins..:) Lucy

    Truth be told just about ANY cashier with a quarter of a brain could put BOTH halves AND dollars in the same fifth slot, and not get confused, and still use both denominations. I mean, the half does got some size on the dollar.

    Well Drago, using that logic, I do suppose you are right.. and you could probably put pennies and nickels to together, maybe dimes and quarters if you really wanted to!

    Well, yeah, I guess. Has anyone here ever seen how Canada handles their $1 and $2 coins? I mean they a pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, $1 and $2 coins (and halves that do not circulate so well, like in the U.S.) so, what do you think the Canadian cashiers do if they only have five coin slots, yet, six to seven circulation coin denominations? Do they mix $1 and $2 coins and the ocassioal halves together in the same slot or what? Perhaps they put one or two coin denominations in the $1 bill slot?
