    I've watched documentaries on the US Mint and colors do add a little more to the security of a bill versus counterfeiting. Not as much as the other techniques but every bit helps. They have to decide this issue based upon, not heritage or tradition but on what is best for the American people. I would think a safer dollar would be the wisest choice, even if the difference is slight.

    Colorblind people aren't entirely colorblind. They can still figure out most colors by examing the shade.

    The difference in weight is made moot due to the fact that you get 8 quarters in one coin. Somehow I think that one $2 coin is going to weight and take up much less space than 8 quarters...
