Thank you, one cent piece.
The humble penny has had it
It was once made of copper and was occasionally referred to as a copper. It got too expensive so the copper was mixed with cheaper materials. Soon that got too expensive to make so the government killed it.
No more pennies for our thoughts or spending a penny (been many a year since a pay toilet cost a penny, methinks) or penny candy.
As sad as I am to see it be no longer struck, I do feel better that it will remain legal tender, and for that I am grateful.
