Today we say Good-Bye to the Canadian Penny. They have been at the bottom of our purses, pockets, cars and everywhere else for years and nobody really finds them useful anymore other than maybe collecting them. 

In fact the mint says it costs more to make them then they are worth so here's to the Canadian Penny and all its brought to us (or not). 

So no more "penny for your thoughts", we will be saying "a nickle for your thoughts" instead.

I remember when I was growing up my grandmother always kept a jar of pennies on her bedroom dresser. Every time she went out and came home with change her pennies went in the jar and when it was full she would bring them to the bank.

We used to save up our pennies and bring them to the corner store, I know the store owner didn't appreciate having to count out 9$ in pennies!

It's bitter sweet.

Do you have any fond memories of the Canadian Penny?

  1. Strangely (or maybe not so) I am sort of sad to see the penny gone.. It feels like the end of an era or something. It will be strange to not see them anymore!
