Should the US dump the dollar bill?

I’m tired of carrying around a fat wallet filled with singles. Canada and Australia successfully replaced their dollar bills with coins, and I found them much handier when traveling in those countries. A number of studies that suggest that it would save the government money in that coins last much longer and thus printing costs drop.

What is your opinion? Drop the dollar and go to coins, or not

While we're on the subject, should we dump the (nearly worthless) penny?
