This contest is fueled by the following news: US dollar coin showing George Washington is the first in line of dollar coins which will show and honor past US presidents. Most vending machines, cash machines, and parking meters will accept this currency. In fact it's sized almost like a quarter dollar, but the machines will distinguish between the two coins correctly. While the new US dollar coin with George Washington is an eye candy for coin collectors, it is nonetheless a legal tender and is part of US currency, so it is accepted in all banks and shops as a form of payment. The next in the line of series of US dollar coins are such American presidents as Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and James Madison. The whole currency program will honor the past US presidents in rotating manner. The idea to honor US presidents on dollar coins is inspired by the previously successful United States Mint 50 State Quarters program. While coin collectors rejoice, US shoppers agree that the new $1 dollar coin with G. Washington is not very practical, no matter how good it looks. The first apparent criticism is that the coin looks, weights and feels almost the same as a quarter, and cab ne easily confused for such by consumers making some rush payments in a taxi or shops. Second, the cash transactions are losing their share to electronic and credit card transactions which account for 90 percent of all money transactions nowadays. Nonetheless, the new dollar coin looks very appealing and is perfect for collectors. US Treasury introduced the dollar coin just before the George Washington birthday, thus honoring the very first American president. US coin collectors mentioned that Washington looked rather strict on the new dollar, and hope the next dollars will feature happier US presidents.
