I remember the gold Sacagawea dollar coin that was out about 4 years ago. I wonder what happened to us using that.

Anyone remember the Susan B Anthony dollar? Boy was that a big success (not)...

I think that dollars should become quarters, quarters should become dimes, dimes should become nickles, and nickels should become pennies.. Then toss out the copper pennies since you can't buy anything with a penny anyway. Plus it would cost a lost, confuse a lot of people, and give the government something to do for years and years even though new coins wouldn't be necessary. (just re-purpose the old ones) Everyone would accept this especially if they have a bunch of quarters in a jar that sudden become dollars.....
