    I work in customer service as well. And I can agree. They have no ****ing grip as well! Mofos are hard as hell to get out of a till!

    But they're still pretty.

    What are the canadian bills made of?

    In Mexico we have a few plastic bills and they are all of different sizes. They also tear easily.

    Doesn't the cocaine stop them sticking?

    There was something the other day about the Bank of England withdrawing our penny too!

    American money is kind of blah, but no I do not think we will be getting rid of the penny anytime soon. We may make if differently and of different materials, but Lincoln will be here awhile still.

    I'd like others to add their 2 cents and give your thoughts on this. Also,do you think the US going to be doing the same in the near future?
    It's the first shoe to drop in the move to the moneyless society. Today, only about 22% of all retail/consumer transactions in Canada are conducted using cash and that is dropping. Today it is the penny, soon it will be the nickel, etc. One of the federal political parties is proposing that Canada get rid of nickels and quarters leaving all transactions to be rounded to the nearest tenth. When money becomes more expensive to print/mint than it's face value, it's only a matter of time before it goes.

    Question is, when will the US follow suit?

    I am surprised the move to get rid of the American penny is not part of a budget deal.

    If it costs .05 or more to make a .01 cent coin, that is money not well spent.

    I don't know what American mint costs are but the Canadian penny cost .016 to make a .01 face value coin.
