So i have heard a rumor that they will be ceasing the production of the penny after 2017. I've scoured the internet and have only been able to find one small mention of it. Does anyone know if this is true? Also does anyone know when they will be releasing 2018 regular strike coins? Thanks in advanced:)4 years ago
I have heard these rumors for years. Nothing official. I'll believe it when I see it. I can't see the US ever discontinuing 1c coins.
Rumors that's all they are. There changing who's on the twenty also and they want to get rid of the dollar in currency. Rumors. I think employment has something to do with it. Cents are made out of Zink covered with copper. There's more copper in a nickel. So Canada did it. There a socialist country employment and population are different. These rumors have also died down. About time. Leave them alone. Been hearing them for five years six? Mike4 years ago
Hopefully the coins will be released as scheduled. Every year they keep close to a schedule of release. Let's hope the keep to this year's.4 years ago
Thank you for your comment. I suspected this was the case. I can see them discontinuing the cent maybe in the next couple of decades but not anytime in the near future. 4 years ago
I don't see them getting rid of the dollar bill, people use them way too much and not many people actually use dollar coins. I've even seen some stores not accept dollar coins (as weird as that is). I couldn't see the penny being discontinued in the near future, but possibly in 10 maybe 20 years. Who knows. 4 years ago
