Eliminate the $1, $2, and $5 paper currencies. These can be easily made coin form as in most European countries.

the life of Paper Currency is much much shorter than the life of coin currency and this would save not only money in reproducing these denominations of bills every year, but would also be a "Greener way" to exchange currency.
