Here are five easy ways to show your support for the dollar coin!
1. Tell your member of Congress to support the COINS Act and save billions!
We’ve made it easy for you with our sample letter:
I am writing, to urge your support for the Currency Optimization, Innovation and National Savings (COINS) Act. This bi-partisan legislation, introduced by Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA), John McCain (R-AZ), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Tom Coburn (R-OK), and Mark Udall (D-CO) will eliminate the wasteful dollar bill from circulation and save the government billions of dollars in the process.
According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), eliminating the dollar bill and transitioning to the dollar coin will save the government at least $4.5 billion over the next 30 years. During this time when all Americans are demanding increased government efficiency, we can’t afford to wait any longer to make this simple, common sense change.
Small businesses, mass transit agencies, budget watchdogs, trade associations, and private companies all agree; the dollar coin makes sense. Please join the bi-partisan effort to reduce the deficit by eliminating the dollar bill and switching to the dollar coin.
The Dollar Coin Alliance is a coalition of American small businesses, mass transit agencies, budget watchdogs, trade associations and private companies. We are located at 900 19th St. NW, 8th Floor, Washington DC 20006. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
