Canadian penny

Some time ago the powers in charge in Canada figured it out it costs 1.6 cents to make one penny... which means: the Bank of Canada is loosing money on the pennies! Everybody know loosing money is not something a bank will do readily :)

So instead of finding out way to lower the cost (maybe they aren't any) - they have decided to... discontinue the penny. Today - it is the last day the mint produces the Canadian Penny.

It's somewhat sad - and now is my chance to collect the little buggers :)

Goodbye, little copper disk - I will miss you!


  1. Oh No! I always love it when they sneak into my pocket, even though they are not supposed to be in circulation here. This makes me a little sad.

  2. As the world changes it is our money that begins the trends

  3. Pentru mine, banii unei ţări ( nu doar bugetul... ) fac parte din identitatea , din "personalitatea" ţării şi a poporului său.
    De aceea nu-mi vine să cred, mi se pare cumplit de trist ce am citit şi tot (mai) sper ca, printr-o minune,să nu se treacă la fapte.
    Succes tuturor !
