Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A penny's worth of copper to give a yellowish hue to a dollar coin spreads the copper around much more thinly ... and making the coin slightly bigger than and slightly thicker than a quarter makes a much more sensible coin than the big platters of four times as much make believe silver as a quarter, and one that would make the vending companies much happier as well.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
