Somehow this week (stamp machine, I think), I came into a few of the sacagawea dollar coins. They've been jangling around my pockets for a few days and today, I decided to spend them. At the sammich shop down the block from my office, I ordered my meal, stepped over to the cashier, and gingerly handed the coins over to the young lady. She didn't even flinch. Gave me a few coins in change and I went on my way.
I couldn't help but feel like I just had gotten away with something - like I got a big discount.
Anyone use these things regularly? Did they stop minting them? Should I not be spending them, instead keeping them or something?
