Farewell to the Canadian Penny: A Penny Lost

4 February 2013
Gingerbread Manor

Canada has minted it’s last penny. The CBC even wrote an obituary for the penny. Why do I mention this? Because as visitors, you might not realize why you aren’t getting pennies in your change. As of today, while some stores will still have pennies, the number of pennies will begin to dwindle. Stores and customers can simply round to the nearest nickel (or dime) if you are paying in cash. If you pay with credit or debit, charges are still to the penny.
