Canadians will not be able to add our "Two cents" anymore.

it's fine if you can't give the world 2 cents, just stop giving the world singers.

Strongest argument yet for getting rid of the Nickel as well!



RIP Penny, You will not be missed.

I knew their days in canada were numbered, when I renamed them assault pennies.
Then when I leaked the report right before the decision was made, that almost 7 Canadians were injured bending over for so-called lucky' pennies their fate was sealed. Step 1 of my evil plan is complete!

Now all I have to do is figure out how to freeze myself for 75 years and my hoard of uncirculated canadian pennies will be worth at least 3 cents each!

I'll BE RICH!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA.

We're well on our way to fully cashless; if it saved time and money, I'd be all for ditching cash entirely but we need better ways to transfer money between people. (phone to phone, no fee instant transfers etc)

I never heard of a drug dealer taking credit cards. I am sure cash will be around for quite some time.

Having said that, if all transactions are cashless and can be tracked it would give a boost to law enforcement efforts (and the barter system)

This is how many small businesses operate in Africa. Payments are made phone to phone from one bank account to another. The report I wrote was on leapfrogging of technologies and how Africans did pretty much just that by bypassing plastic as a way to make payments.

I wouldn't be offended if we did the same with the penny. It costs something like 1.4 cents per penny to make, so even the game of making money is losing money.

You, sir, are the king of word play. I lol'd.

I don't think drug dealers use pennies anyway. So do they round up or down when you change back?

the day cash is abandoned is the day you pay strippers by sliding your smartphone down her crack.

it's also the day before the day you get pink eye.

from what i've read, africa does that because there's some kind of problem about people getting bank accounts. that's not such a big problem elsewhere. more methods are always welcome but we already have debit cards, i wonder how big of a niche storing currency on your phone can get.
