    Sure they will. The penny will be useless. People will be throwing them away

    If you dont want your pennies, id be more than willing to take them off your hands. In fact, ill take your nickels and dimes too.

    They should get rid of the penny. It costs more to make them than they are worth.

    Same for the nickel now. If you get rid of the nickel you gotta get rid of the dime. Other wise you could have 10 cents, 20 cents, 25 cents, 30 cents, 40 cents, 50 cents, 60 cents, 70 cents, 75 cents, 80 cents, and 90 cents - which is kinda strange. Have only the quarter and higher and do all transactions to the nearest quarter.

    I think the economy is taking care of that problem right now.

    If it continues to go down, few of us will have a cent to our names anyaway.
