Why do you think people resist the use of dollar coins?

Asked at Massachusetts Street on February 12, 2007

“No one likes change. They don't like the weight in their pocket or their change getting in the way of everything else they're carrying.”

“Change is more annoying than bills are, and it's easier to tell how much money is in your wallet with bills.”

“I think that people don't like to deal with currency or coins in general. Everyone seems to prefer the electronic transfer of money.”

“I think it's a hassle to carry them around if you get them as change. They're bulky and don't fit in your wallet easily. I think they're just impractical for everyday use.”
