After all the news about the errors being found on the new dollar coins, I decided to see what I could find on my own. I found them at the third bank I went to and bought two $25 rolls. As I opened them, I felt like Charlie Bucket in Willy Wonka, only this time, instead of looking for gold, I was looking for a blank coin or missing edge lettering.
I found neither, but the great thing about it is it didn’t cost me anything but time. I still have $50, but instead of carrying around two twenties and a ten, I have 50 dollar coins. I took 10 of them into work and several people wanted some, so I converted those ten back into currency.
You might as well pick up a roll if for no other reason than to get a confused look from the cashier at the supermarket when you spend them.
There aren’t too many ways you can pay money for something and know for a fact that you’re either going to come out ahead or dead even. You can’t lose when getting new coins from the bank.
