Pennies are no longer being produced; whatever is in circulation is all there is. For cash purchases, prices are to be rounded to nearesst nickel.
For electronic purchases, pennies are essentially still in effect.
So... if you purchase something for, say, $23.02, pay with cash. If it is $23.03, use your card and save 2 cents.
The reason for getting rid of the pennies are: 1. cost - about 1 1/2 to 2 cents to produce 2. people hoard them and only cash them in on occasion; I remember my parents doing that and cashing in $50 or more at a time - all pennies.
I generally inflict them about 2 dozen at a time on a waiter who annoys me in lieu of a quarter as part of a cash tip.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason? Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful? --Zachris Topelius
