I definitely will collect them. I really enjoy collecting coins from "circulation". Most of my state quarters are coins that I've gotten in change. It's fun.

 

My plan my have a giant hole in it, in that dollar coins don't seem to circulate much.

Lol, the banks are sure to have them :ninja: Just buy a roll of them, and keep two or three of them, and then deposit the rest of the dollars into your bank account so you arent spending a whole bunch of money to get a few dollar coins ;) And most of my quarters are out of circulation too. But I keep a set that is UNC too. The curculated set is for fun.

Don't be too sure about the banks always having them. In fact the way I see us handle coins at the bank the dollar coins will be difficult to find. Most of our bank vaults have little room to stockpile $1000 boxes of $1 coins.

 

It's like any retail business, they wont stock things that don't move. This being said maybe these things will be kinda hard to find, great I think I just talked myself into collecting them :ninja:

The BANKS will not have them so don't get your hopes up. We have not been able to obtain Sacagaweas in this area since 2000 and my bank tellers have asked me to get them Sackies by the roll as the main office REFUSES to call them out from the Federal Reserve. The banks DON'T want coinage and wouldn't order the first red cent if they didn't have too!

Now, as far as these new dollars are concerned, well they are another attempt by the self centered politicians to pat themselves on the back and to create a new cash cow at the U.S. Mint. Have any of you given any thought as to what a mint set or proof set will cost you next year?

Now the biggest joke of my lifetime, the spouses in gold, demonstrates how totally out of touch with the U.S. citizen and coin collectors our politicians really are! It also points out the fact they really don't give a darn what they are voting on or approving if it doesn't affect them or their immediate interests. Congress is a loose monster out of control and their continued efforts to shove politically based coins down our throat has turned me and hundreds of other U.S. collectors into foreign collecting. I am so thankful for the beauty, the culture, the history, and the nature that I have found in Canadian coins, the silver Euro commemoratives and good ole Australia coinage and now have begun searching for those classical European coins from the past that I can add to my world collection! In ending, I don't want the dead Presidents or their spouses in any way shape or form! At least the Sackie will still be made right along side of them and I will have something to continue!

Excellent rant, crystalk64 !!! I agree completely.

 

I will probably end up having some of the darned things, but it won't be because I collect them. I think I'll work my US Type Set to the end of the 20th century, and no further.

I'm pretty lucky on the bank thing. The head teller is usually willing to order anything for me without a charge == but only in minimum quantities. She's usually willing to hold the items I don't want for others who come in, but I hate to put her in that spot. She cannot request specific things like rolls of xxx quarters. She can only ask for "new" quarters and hope.

Depends totally on easy they are obtainable for a non-US person.

 

I have to rely on peeps I know in the US who have an extra which I can buy/trade from them.

 

I have the feeling that these dollar coins will circulate better as a result of the major interest in the statehood quarters. People will want to have the new president dollar and thus will ask their bank for e.g. a roll. Just as CoinJoe said, keep a few and spend the rest, which means they end up in circulation.
