Dollar Coins

I've been advocating a complete switch to dollar coins for a long time. Apparently new dollar coins are being launched with various presidents on them, rotating appearances like the state quarters, instead of Sacagawea. Coolness aside, the main reason we need to switch comes from the same article I saw about the new design:

the government would save about $500 million annually in printing costs if it got rid of the dollar bill in favor of more durable coins

But then, I suppose $500,000,000 isn't "real" money.
