Paper money unfair to Blind

Well, here we go. There is still a lot of legal mumbo jumbo to go through, so it may sill take years, but eventually we will have money like the Euro, which comes in all shapes and sizes. Maybe this is the ideal time to get rid of the Penny and the paper $1 bill ?

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- A federal appeals court Tuesday ruled that the U.S. Treasury Department is violating the law by failing to design and issue currency that is readily distinguishable to blind and visually impaired people.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a 2006 district court ruling that could force the U.S. to redesign its money so blind people can distinguish between values.
