US Government to Embed RFID Chips into New One Dollar Coins
The US Government has a ambitious plan to embed RFID chips in the new one dollar presidential coin in a test to see if the technology can be adopted for larger denomination coins. If the experiment is successful it could usher in a super easy automated micro payment system that would make cash registers and human to human money exchange obsolete.

The Treasury is focused on popularizing the notion of large denomination coins to save on the substantial printing cost of 6.5 billion paper dollars a year, which on average last about 18 months in circulation . The Government’s last attempt to introduce a $1 dollar coin, the Sacagawea dollar was a disaster with 97% of the public having never used it.

The plan calls for inserting the RFID device in a fixed percentage of coins in order to test the feasibility of large scale deployment. It turns out that coins make for the perfect RFID device, with their conductive alloy composition and their natural resistance to tampering. In fact the range of these passive RFID coins is thought to be 10 feet which means vending machines using this technology would be easier to use and new micro payment industires could develop around fast easy money transfers. Drive thru windows could be automated and the choice of items in vending machines would be greatly expanded.

the first thing that comes to mind is that machines dont need an RFID chip to recognize coins, there are already plenty of machines that can work with coins so its proven to work fine without a chip

It would be an experiment to track and record data of the movement of all the coins.

That's whatI was thinking. Why would you need to have chips in a coin, that can be read from ten feet away? ""Oh, I want a Snickers bar."
:Pushes c3, machine reads two one dollar coins in my pocket, kicks out said Snickers bar and says I have one dollar left.:
Then what? I have to throw out the one the machine read? How do I know which one that is?: And if I can figure it out, what do I do with the used coin. Throw it out? Recycle it? WTF?
There is absolutely no economical, convenience or other reasonable purpose for this. Time to figure out if throwing these things in a fire for a while could destroy the chips methinks.
In any given situation, you'll either like the outcome, or you won't.

OMG...stop freaking out. An electric current will disable the things. An extra step, yes. But if you are worried about big brother watching / listening / tracking you, then just fry the sucker
