Canadian Penny Eliminated

Still Legal Tender But No Longer Made

'A penny for your thoughts' and 'watch the pennies and the dollars take care of themselves' are two more expressions that will seem pointless in the very near future.

Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said of the lowly penny "they take up too much space of our dressers at home", for that and other reasons the shiny pocket ballast will no longer be a part of our Canadian currency. Meaning purchases will be rounded off from now on, and we will no longer jingle quite as much when we walk.
