But you could pay for whole Costco pizzas at the outside window - they don't take credit cards. Or contributions to the homeless or the guy in the parking lot who just needs money for gas to get home to his family.
I agree that there is no point to buying the coins unless you use them in places where only cash is accepted OR you just really want to encourage the circulation of dollar coins, which is what the U.S. Mint has been directed to do by Congress. This is the same idiotic Congress that won't allow BEP to stop the printing of dollar bills.
