Still paper, but with a few more security features.

The US could have hundreds of millions of dollars by doing that (at least
$1 coins) but it has been demonstrated around the world that the only way
to do that *successfully* is to pull the bills out of circulation
immediately as the coins are released.

Our "Susie B" dollar was a failed attempt -- becuase the bill was not
pulled. People claim silly things like it was too close in size to the
quarter (BS - try it sometime) or it was too heavy.
