You have to ask yourself - is political correctness allowing the non-sealing of our borders?
If this is what is could be - we are willingly allowing entry into our nation by potential infected actors.
Rather foolhardy IMO
I just spend coins as I get them. Since high school, I've probably averaged $1-$1.50 in change in my pocket. Not enough to be an annoyance, and if you use it for purchases, it never builds up beyond that.
Which doesn't help the OP with his question, unfortunately.
