Not sure what your problem is? Sounds like a good business decision, 30cents per coin to 4 to 6 cents per coin... That is a significant savings.

Should be been using that material from the start.

Because it will cause an insane amount of problems for regular users and business people.

...the cost of changing over will be passed along to consumers. Other than that, what's the big problem for consumers by changing the weight and metal content of coins?

I don't see any real problems, other than making business people have to schedule more work for their staff to change over their equipment.

It's a cost cutting measure that also creates more jobs for vending machine repair businesses, and the gov gets to say "we slashed costs and created jobs all at the same time".

some people don't like change I guess. (no pun intended, but have fun with it if you like)

Some of the same stuff was said when the $2 bill was replaced with a coin.

Yet, the sun still rises, and the vending machines still work...

vending machines will still work....only after a $40,000,000 fix (what the estimated costs are to change over).
