So if I'm a smart retailer do I not jack my prices by the couple cents per each item to make sure that I have nothing for sale that will round down? Wouldn't be that tough to do, and you know there are crooked businesses out there that will look to make that extra couple cents on each sale.

Fair enough, I'm well off enough that it doesn't bother me either. But large retailers could exploit this to make themselves a few extra dollars, and they do all add up. A dollar a month doesn't matter to me now, and I hope it never will, but it could still happen one day.

Curious, how would it be a "waste of money" to switch to the dollar coin?

Coins are more cost effective. It cost rough 10 cent to print a dollar (9.6 if you want to be picky) and 30 cent to mint the coin.

However, coins are more cost-effective than dollar bills. A coin can last 30 years, but a new dollar bill will be ready for the shredder in less than four years.

You wouldn't need to mint as many to replace the stock..

So many people are forgetting about the rounding up

So if I buy 7 1p sweets, it'll cost me 5p?
