We recently got rid of the $1 and $5 coins in Chile. (a Chilean peso is 0.14 US cents). Same arguments, same counter arguments. Now we round up or down cash payments to the nearest ten. Old coins can be changed at the bank. The world kept going as if nothing had happened and we no longer lose money by making money.

I wish he had pointed out that when they discontinued the half-cent in 1857, it was worth more than a dime is worth today!

What about sales tax? Our state sales tax is 6%. So, if I buy something for $1, and there's no pennies, then it's going to cost me $1.10 instead of $1.06. That don't sound like much per transaction, but multiply that by the hundreds of thousands or millions of transactions every day, and that's a lot of money disappearing somewhere (somewhat like the plot of Superman 3). The only way to get rid of the penny is to change state tax codes to make all the tax rates divisible by 5.

If they got rid of the penny, the cost of a single Tootsie Roll would suddenly become unreasonably high simple due to the nickel being the lowest value currency. Sorry John but I think I just successfully refuted your whole argument.

Why are you, from England calling our one cent a penny, there is no American penny! The Mint does not call our American currency a penny we have a cent. Britain has pennies.

When I was leaving USA I spent an hour wondering around the airport and looking for a charity box I could dump my two pounds of change into. And I did, eventually. The workers watching me stuff their box with coins were quite perplexed.

A hay penny more? So if there is a half a penny tax we are minus 1 cent in tax revenue? Asking because my state propsed a half a cent tax. What's next decimilation?

Pennies are mostly zinc. They used to be 95% copper and 5% zinc and as far as the metals go are worth 2 cents when copper is over $3 a pound but would be treated as brass by scrap yards. There are quite a few idiots saving them hoping to cash in some day but they will only be getting contaminated copper price.

I disagree with Oliver here. I use pennies and getting rid of them would be in the favor of big businesses so they can screw us on change.

One time we bought a soda with refills for a dollar. My mom and I decided to empty our pockets and see if we had enough pennies to pay for it and we did (you never know what you might have in a purse);after counting we went to the guy and he looked terrified and said “are you sure it’s a dollar?” We affirmed and he asked a the other cashier and they ultimately gave us the refill without taking the pennies. It might have been a waste of time but it was very funny to see their reactions and was totally worth it 😂

Yeah. You find a thousand of them, you've got yourself $10.00. And if the prospect of finding $10.00 in dirty pennies on the ground makes you happy, then you definitely need a man (or a woman) in your life.

There are very good reasons to get rid of pennies. The best that I'm aware of is that they actually cost businesses money in terms of the time required to count and handle them in transactions and banking. However, the cost of manufacturing a penny is not a good reason. If pennies were single use or if their melt value were greater than one cent (for modern pennies, that's 0.6 cents, though for older 95% copper pennies it's 1.75 cents, which is why they are rapidly disappearing from circulation), then manufacturing cost would be more meaningful. However, pennies can be used hundreds of times and they last decades. A cheaper but equally durable penny would be better, but that's not available.

6:00 okay, here's an idea... stop making cent coins and round up the prices of goods to positive integers and save yourself the cost of it's manufacture, now give that money to charity... I bet with you that there will be enough money to get homeless people off the streets

In Brazil it was the paper R$1 that was expensive to make so they made more coins of it and discontinued the paper (it's the largest coin we have, size wise)

I went to UNC Charlotte. They deserved every second of that penny counting even they weren't involved with the fine. ALSO, parking spaces at UNCC were around $430 when I was there so he probably got a quarter of one but it would have been given to some visitor with a day pass.

Even if Ireland had gotten rid of the 1 cent coin, which it didn't, it wouldn't matter. It's still legal currency and Ireland is part of the Euro zone which means you could just pay with Belgian, Portuguese, Greek or what have you Eurocents.

Pennies from 2008 are actually fairly valuable among collectors. The reason: :the recession forced the mint to manufacture less currency that year making the 2008 penny fairly rare.

God I've never commented before but I got to say buddy I love the show and you're great, Avid watch her and I think I've seen every single show but looking back on the penny thing it's my belief and this is just my belief no fat pure fiction but is it true pennies are worthless because every year I see Santa's shake their bells and most of the people I've ever seen but money in her Cal for Penny so I'm just curious do you still stand by that

Dude, the penny is just a part of American culture. $136 mil - $80 million ... call it a $60 mil loss. Totally worth it. For all the jokes, the donations, and the science projects we get out of it ... America's pissed away more for less.

Forgive my ignorance but, as pennies are actual U.S. currency, they are subject to federal laws that protect ALL currency. Has anyone else noticed that the Cutco company sells scissors that, in a example, salesman cut a penny to show its effectiveness? I am asking because my friends were reps for the company after high school and I wonder... Are my friends Felons??

Australia dropped the penny and went with the 2cent piece. So change the valuation of the penny to equal 2 cents. Old pennies are now worthless. There is a limited by back period and then they are not wanted. Only the new pennines 2019 are now legal currency. Abe still can be shown...nothing has changed much except its value. Pennies do have a value, say like when the battery cable clamp is not tight enough, just hammer in a penny to fill the gap and it is tight again.

I did the same experiment with quarters quite a few years ago. The funniest common occurrence was when an old couple would see it and the wife would point it out so that the husband could pick it up.

the reason ppl don't pick up the pennies is b/c there are other ppl around and to pick up a penny is to appear cheap. if nobody else was around to judge them, they would pick them up.
