John Harkin Money Quote saying One dollar coins cost more to make than the paper bill, but last much longer – so the Iowa Democrat is seeking replacement of $1 paper currency. John Harkin said:
It’s way more efficient than a paper dollar, Canada has a coin that’s worth $2… Switzerland has one worth about $5… And yet, what have we got? We got a 25-cent piece.
