    The only way they’ll ever get dollar coins into distribution is to do it like the Canadians – issue them and set a deadline to withdraw the paper currency from the market.

    Embrace the coins! If Canadians can do it, so can you! 🙂

    You can actually get a free flight this way (or more). Maximum order is $5000 of each issue. They currently have 4 issues in stock = $20,000.

    And free delivery.

    If you can “launder” $20,000, you get:

    1. 20K miles (or more if you get some sort of bonus)
    2. Improved credit rating (as long as you pay on time)
    3. Get back at the bank

    They weight 8.1g each, so the monthly haul to the bank will be 162kg or roughly 350 pounds.

    Of course, you can repeat on multiple cards for different family members.
