One of the items that was planned for, was a large stash of American paper currency, to use once the emergency had passed. At the time, the BPE (Bureau of Printing and Engraving) had printed a large amount of $2 bills. The problem was that Americans don't like to use them. The planners diverted all these unwanted bills in order to provide some legal tender after the catastrophe was over.
Do you know if that's what they did with the Warren dollar coins they starting minting in 2000?

I heard that certain ill reputed establishments used to give $2 bills out as change for drinks. I have no idea why...and I believe that inflation has rendered them unacceptable as "tips" in these same establishments. :biggrinjester:
