In practice, th US has abolished the one-dollar coin. The government wants to keep it, but the people abolished it themselves. Just abolish pennies. The government can't force you to use them.

I've said before, eliminate the penny and round, replace the dollar bill with a two dollar bill and bring back the dollar coin. It would make like so much easier. Changing out the bills would eliminate the "dollar coin change" issue.
