How do you feel about the "gold" dollars?

I am really positive about the idea, but they don't feel like dollars to me. I wish they would put a hole in the middle or make them hexagonal or a little thicker like a pound. They just don't feel like they're worth a dollar.

I wish they would make them the size of an old silver dollar, or at least the size of a 50 piece.

there is no paper currency smaller than a five in the EU anymore, dollar and two dollar coins make complete sense, but they have never seemed to catch on very well in the US except in Las Vegas

I like the buffalo nickels too...I can dust off my grandmother's old saying about cheapskates..."he was so tight when he squeezed a nickel he would get a handful of buffalo ****"
