I recently learned that the Canadian government would like to or is considering eliminating the Canadian penny. By some estimates, it actually costs more to produce a 1 cent penny. This is all in the name of saving Federal expenses. In my mind, the effect of such a change would make our cost-of-goods be rounded up to the nearest five cent mark. For example, a Big Mac that costs $3.46 would instead cost $3.50. Should we still pay for our goods to the exact penny or something else? Therefore, my question is: Should the U. S. government ever consider eliminating the Lincoln penny; how do you feel about it?
