The Government Accountability Office will try once again this week to make its case for one dollar coins, instead of dollar bills.

The GAO says a one dollar coin typically costs about 30 cents for the U.S. Mint to produce.

But the government can sell them to Americans for a dollar each.

In contrast, producing a dollar bill is much cheaper, it only costs about 5-cents apiece. But they wear out far more quickly than coins, and typical last less than five years.

This won’t be the first time the GAO makes its case for coins, it’s been recommending the change for 22 years.

This topic was talked about during FOX40’s morning show Thursday, and one viewer had particularly harsh words for Paul after he shared his opinion that other countries use dollar, or similar amount, coins.
