Why do pennies even exist anymore? Honestly. You can’t buy anything with a penny and it costs more than a penny to make a penny. Tons of people don’t even use paper money anymore, now that everything is digitalized. But even those who use cash hardly ever take the time to fish out seven pennies from the bottom of their dirty purses to get exact change back. Instead, all those pennies pile up and take up space in trinket plates and couch cushions while continuing to build up in circulation. Countries like Canada are ahead of the game. They stopped minting their one-cent coins in 2012 and only pennies minted after 1982 are still legal in circulation. But here in America, we continue to produce and mint pennies, even though the cost of producing one penny is actually MORE than the penny itself (they cost 1.7 cents to make). It makes no sense.
