Penny Phase-Out

1974 Canadian Penny (Reverse)

I haven’t had time to post in a while but I’m trying to make time. Anyways, in Canada last week ( Monday, February 4, 2013) the government has decided to take out the penny of our coinage system. They said that taxpayers are saving about $11 million per year. To remember them I’m collecting all the pennies I can. Every week, my friends and I will put our pennies together and when we have a lot, we will put it in a time capsule so in the future (hopefully) people will wonder and probably figure out what they are.  Do the same! Long live the penny! Can anyone tell me  what “Long live the penny” means? LOL!

Status update: Sad 😦
