The penny, with two maple leaves on one side and a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the other, has lost 95 percent of its purchasing power since it was first produced by the mint.
This is the most significant piece of information.

I understand the problems it would present our current society. I'm not saying it should happen tomorrow. I'm just saying there are benefits and that should be the direction we're going.

There's these little devices that let you pay by credit card via swiping it through you phone. Lots of Asian countries have RFID (or something) tags in their mobile phones to pay for things...like that PayPass thing you see at gas stations. Give your babysitter's phone a fist bump...ding...payment received.

Well, should be no cents or zero cents now.
$0.02 is rounded down to $0.00 now.

Ideally the prices would change such that they will always end up at a multiple of .05 to make things easier for everyone. If you really are worried about losing up to 4 pennies on a purchase due to a lack of pennies lying around (cause they'll still be usable, just not being made anymore), use a debit/credit card.
