Spending the Sacagawea

sacageweacoin.jpgSomehow 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?


  1. you only feel strange about it because you feel like you should be collecting them, not spending them. some people want to lose the paper dollar entirely, so you might want to get used to it :)
